Rehearsal Dinner

So when Frank and I first began thinking about having a Disney wedding, we laid out what both of us really wanted more than anything else. His list was this:

1) Magic Kingdom Ceremony (This was quickly changed when he learned of all the strict guidelines, and also of the back-up/rain location)
2) Making me happy

My list was a little longer (and selfish), but since he really was the one who picked Disney World as our destination wedding site, I figure I'm entitled. Especially since Fiji is sounding better and better every day!
1) Outside wedding (this changed as soon as I found out if it rained the back-up location was basically a giant conference hall, I'm really quite happy with our choices though, the Wedding Pavillion is gorgeous!)
2) Rehearsal dinner at Jiko
3) A dessert party at Epcot

We have finally confirmed our rehearsal dinner, and I am so excited. For those of you not familiar with dining at Disney restaurants, it is absolutely outstanding! Jiko is hands down my favorite restaurant anywhere though. We have booked the wine room, and I'm very much looking forward to it. I've always wanted to book the wine room there, but its pretty pricey, so you really need to have a good reason to book it. Poor Frank was actually not impressed with the pricing situation, but he knows how much I had my heart set on it. I just LOVE this place, and it is a really special restaurant for us. It is the first "fancy" restaurant we went to together, and we go literally every time we go to Disney World. It is our one "must do." I am so excited to share this restaurant with our closest friends and family.

The menu changes seasonally and out guests will be able to order from the full restaurant menu. If you've never seen a Jiko menu, this link will give you an idea of what they serve. If you are ever travelling to Disney World, this restaurant comes HIGHLY recommended. It has won many, many awards and ranks as one of the top restaurants consistently.

So we're honeymooning down there are staying at the AK Lodge. Fiancee made reservations at the new restaurant opening at AK Villas -- Sanaa. http://land.allears.net/blogs/dnews/2009/03/sanaa_at_animal_kingdom_villas_1.html

But now I am wondering if we should do Jiko instead. Is it a 2-credit meal?
