    What’s the fastest way to get from Saratoga Springs to Sanaa?

    Hi Ann Marie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Two words about Sanaa at Kidani Village: Bread Service. You have to try this delicious appetizer! If you have a big group, even better, as it is a social event as you taste and experiment with all the different flavors and dips that come with this dish. Even my husband, who is not an adventurous eater, enjoyed it, as he could try new flavors without committing to an entire entree.

    From Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the fastest method of transportation would be to use Disney’s Minnie Van Service. Ride in style, driven safely by a Disney Cast Member from your resort to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. Minnie Vans can accommodate up to 6 Guests, and include two car seats if you have little ones. I would leave yourself at least 30, maybe 40 minutes for this, allowing time for the Minnie Van to arrive and for the drive itself. Like the White Rabbit, I hate being late, so I always leave extra time for traffic!

    If you were wanting to use Disney’s complimentary bus service, I would take the bus to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, then transfer to a bus for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Kidani Village will be the first bus stop on the resort bus. I would leave yourself 75 to 90 minutes for this method. If your bus arrives quickly, the journey could be as quick as 45 minutes, but if you have to wait 20 minutes for each bus, you’ll want to give yourself a time buffer.

    Other alternatives would be to use an Uber, Lyft or Taxi service. Again, I would leave yourself at least 30 to 40 minutes to make the transfer. If you have good travel luck and arrive early, with any of these methods, take a walk out to see the animals on the savanna or enjoy a drink at the bar while you wait for your table.

    Happy travels, Ann Marie, and don’t forget to try the Indian-style Bread Service!
