    I've just discovered Sanaa and want to eat there while at WDW! We will be staying on property, but would we be able to drive our own car to Animal Kingdom Lodge? We'd probably go on a non park day and not want to mess with buses.

    Hi Randi, 

    Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is one of my favorite "hidden treasures" at Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to order the Indian-style Bread Service appetizer, it is delicious! Yes, you absolutely can drive your own car to the resort to enjoy dinner. In fact, this is a great plan because Disney buses do not travel from resort to resort and it would be very time consuming to get back to your resort via multiple buses after dinner. You will want to make sure that you have booked an Advanced Dining Reservation ahead of time and bring that confirmation number with you. When you arrive at the resort, you will simply inform the gate attendants that you are dining at Sanaa. They will point you in the right direction in regards to where to park. Be sure that you are heading towards Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village and not to the Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
