    We have dinner reservations for Sanaa at 6:00. How do we get back to the Grand Floridian after dinner? According to the information I have found, the busses only run for an hour after the park closes. I am sure dinner will take longer than an hour.

    Hello and Welcome, Cheryl. I'm glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. 

    I'm excited to know that you have dinner reservations at Sanaa. It's a great dinner and I have a feeling you are going to love it. Be sure to order the Indian-Style Bread Service as an appetizer, it's a crowd favorite. You'll get a choice of bread with nine accompaniments. It's a great way to kick off your meal. From your table, you'll enjoy the lush African landscape and you might just catch a glimpse of one of your favorite animals out on the savanna. If you arrive early for your dinner reservation, stop by the Sanna Lounge. If you enjoy wine, they offer a variety of African wines that are really incredible. It's a fun way to kick off a great meal. 

    You'll be able to get back to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa by catching a bus to one of the other Walt Disney World Theme Parks that will be open later in the night. I took a look at the Walt Disney World Theme Park hours for your travel dates and noticed that Epcot stays open the latest during your trip. After your dinner, hop a bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge over to Epcot. Then, you can take another bus over to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. But, you might be full and tired by then. My transportation of choice later in the evening is using a ride-share service. I've found that they are super convenient and pretty affordable for what it is. Ride-share cars can pick you up right in front of the lobby of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and will drop you off right in front of the lobby at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. 

    I hope this helps get you back to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is my favorite resort and I'm excited for you to enjoy it. If you have any other questions before your trip, stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
