    Hi, We have dining reservations at Sanaa for 7:30 in the evening in February. I was wondering if it is still possible to see the animals while dining at that time. Thank you!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carol. We're so happy to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     Sanaa is my family's absolute favorite dining location at the Walt Disney World Resort. Enjoying the delicious food and breathtaking views at Sanaa is a must-do with every Disney vacation we take! I know you'll love this unique restaurant as much as we do.
     To answer your question, you should be able to see plenty of animals from your table at 7:30 PM. In fact, the animals are more likely to be active later in the evening! I use the word 'should' because the animals are free to roam the Sunset Savanna at their will, and sometimes they choose to stay out of sight. My family was dining at Sanaa during a thunderstorm once and the animals all took off to seek shelter. Watching them race across the savanna was quite a sight to see! That said, that instance was the one and only time we weren't able to view the animals from our table at Sanaa. 

     Be sure to allow yourself some time to explore Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village when you arrive for your dinner reservation. This Disney Resort hotel is just stunning with beautiful architecture and lots of African art and artifacts to admire!

     I hope this was helpful, Carol. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
