    Hi, can we use the Disney bus from animal kingdom to the kidani village (and back again) to dine at Sanna if we are not staying on site? If so, is there a charge? If not, is going to Sanna by car a fairly easy/straightforward journey? Thank you.

    Welcome to planDisney, Emma! My friend, you have made one of the best dining choices on Disney property! I promise Sanaa's legendary Indian Bread Service lives up to the hype. The massive windows look over the spectacular savanna and wildlife - I'm so excited for you to have this unforgettable experience. 

    Disney provides complimentary transportation options to and from Disney Resort hotels and theme parks for all Guests, so feel free to hop on the bus at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park that's headed to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The buses all clearly label their destination, and you'll find easy-to-follow guidance maps for the correct bus stop stands too. It's a short journey, and please be sure to disembark at Kidani Village rather than Jambo House if you would like a shorter walk to the Restaurant. Both lobbies are sure to wow any Guest. 

    You can enter Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort parking as you have a confirmed dining reservation. Simply speak to the friendly Cast Members at the gate, confirm your reservation details, and they'll direct you to the best area to park. 

    Emma, I wish you a tasty culinary experience and a magical adventure at Walt Disney World. If you need anything else, I'd love to help, Louise.
