    Hello (again)! I wondered which restaurant (that can be reserved) you would recommend in Animal Kingdom? Someone mentioned one overlooking animals? Many thanks again!

    Hi Alice!

    Exploring all of the amazing food options is one of the best parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  At Disney's Animal Kingdom, there are so many awesome dining options.  One of my favorites is the Rainforest Cafe for its yummy food and amazing atmosphere, and although I have not had the opportunity to try it yet, I have heard really good things about the Tusker House Restaurant.  If you decide you are interested in a counter service restaurant, make sure to check out Satu'li Canteen, which is probably my absolute favorite restaurant right now!  

    If you are interested in a dining experience where you can dine while watching animals, you can hop on over to Sanaa!  Sanaa, located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, has been one of my favorite dining locations for a few years now.  Not only do you have the opportunity to watch over 30 species of animals roam the Sunset Savanna, but you also can enjoy amazing foods like the Indian-style bread service!  I am sure that no matter what you choose, you will absolutely love your dining experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
