    We want to do dinner at Sanaa, but have concerns about transportation. ADR is for 7:00, party of 7. How would we get back to our hotel AoA? We rely on Disney transportation and AK closes at 6. Will a shuttle take us back to AK that late? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Sanaa is one of my favorite dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. The African food is truly fantastic and the Indian-style bread service is the perfect way to start your meal. Complimentary Resort Transportation will be able to get you back to your hotel even though Disney's Animal Kingdom closes prior to your reservation. Since there are no direct buses between Disney's Animal Kingdom Village - Kidani Village, home of Sanaa, and Disney's Art of Animation Resort, you will need to transfer at a theme park or Downtown Disney. You can transfer at any park that is still open, so you can choose to hop on whatever bus arrives first. Since Downtown Disney is generally the resort area that is open the latest and does not close early for special events, it is always a safe bet to get your family back "home"!

    Let us know if you have any other questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
