    If I was to book a dinner at one of the restaurants at AKL; which would get me best view and closest to the animals. Which would you recommend? Coming in 1st week of June 2013. What would be the best time to book the dinner to see the animals while dining?

    Hi Nicholas!  The only restaurant at Animal Kingdom Lodge that offers a view of the savanna is Sanaa.  The restaurant is level with the great outdoors, and you'll be able to look out through the windows to maybe get a glimpse of some of the animals roaming the area.

    As for the best time to dine, well, there are a couple of things at play here.  There's no guarantee that there will be an animal wandering by the window at any given time, and there's no guarantee that you will be able to snag a window seat.  To help improve your chances, you'll want to make sure you are dining before the sun goes down, and if you book an early dinner reservation - maybe right at 5PM, you may have a better chance of getting a window table.

    Have a great vacation!
