    Which would be better for a dinner after a day at AK- Sanaa or Tusker House? Coming in May 2010 and will be on the DDP.


    The two restaurant options are a bit apples and oranges. Here is how I would suggest you decide;

    Dining Style
    Tusker House is a buffet, whereas Sanaa is a a la carte at your table. If you are looking for something a bit more upscale, I suppose the table side service and the more cozy atmosphere would lean you towards Sanaa.

    Tusker House is in the Animal Kingdom park, whereas Sanaa is at the Animal Kingdom Villas. So you have to take a bus from the park to the resort, and then consider transportation back to your resort.

    Tusker House has a buffet with lots of African-inspired items, as well as traditional american choices. Sanaa has a menu with more Indian and African inspired entrees. If you are dealing with a family member not open to experimentation, Tusker House might give you a bit more wiggle room.

    I love both, but I would opt for Tusker House, assuming I was staying anywhere other than the Animal Kingdom Villas, mostly for the transportation convenience.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
