    We will arrive at WDW in 14 days(!), using Magical Express, and staying at AKL. Do the DME buses have a particular route they follow to the various resorts? We arrive at 11:14 and don't want to miss our 1:05 Sanaa reservation. Thanks!

    Jambo, Angela! 

    Doesn't it feel great to be under the two-week mark in your vacation countdown? Before you know it, you'll be enjoying the stunning views of animals in the savannas and admiring all the unique African art found around this Resort hotel. I'm so excited that it will be hEAR so soon!

    Disney's Magical Express is such a convenient transportation option from the Orlando International Airport. I love that it's complimentary and that they include luggage delivery as part of the service (5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily). Usually, you'll find several stops along the way to your Resort hotel, so it's best to estimate around 90 minutes to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It may take less, but it's always a good idea to plan a little cushion just in case. Since Sanaa is located in Kidani Village at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, I don't think you'll have a problem making a 1:05 p.m. reservation. My mouth is watering, thinking about dipping a delicious piece of Indian-style bread into one of the many tasty sauces. It's so good! 

    Angela, once you arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, it's not a far walk to Kidani Village. Bell Services will be happy to hold your luggage if your room is not ready or if you are running short on time.

    Beginning your vacation with a flavorful meal in a uniquely-themed setting sounds just perfect to me, Angela! If you have any other last-minute questions, please let us know.

    Have a MAGICAL time!
