    Hello! We are excited for a November trip to WDW! We staying at AKV Kidani and are planning to have a Thanksgiving meal at Sanaa. We could only get reservations at 4:30p. Can we still order off the dinner menu at that time? Thanks!!

    Hey Lisa!

    We’re so glad you found us here at planDisney!

    We can’t wait to welcome you home at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. With over 200 animals that call the 4 lush savannahs home, you’re sure to be in for a magical experience. There’s nothing better than waking up and drinking your coffee on your balcony while the animals start grazing for the day. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is so unique and amazing that you're in for an African Safari adventure.

    Every time we stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, dinner at Sanaa is a must! I think you planned a really good idea of choosing Sanaa for your Thanksgiving Dinner. As of right now, dinner starts at 5pm so your reservation is a bit early to order off of the dinner menu. If it were me, I’d keep the 4:30pm reservation since reservations on Thanksgiving will be hard to get. I’d start with the Indian Style Bread Service (Best thing on the Menu!) and one of their South African Wines, beer or spirits. Once the clock strikes 5pm you can place your main entree order! 

    Well Lisa, I hope you found this information useful and have a wonderful Thanksgiving at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
