    Hi! I'm addicted to this panel. 1 more ?. We are planning to eat at Sanaa on our AK day. Should we book a late lunch (around 2:30) or early dinner(around 5pm) to get the best view of the animals. Can you see the animals in the dark? Thanks again.

    Hi Vidya,

    I'm not sure which time of year you will be visiting but given the choice, I would recommend making a late lunch reservation at around 2.30pm. If you would like a table in front of the windows, I would suggest arriving at the restaurant a little early and making this known to a Cast Member when checking-in for your meal.

    My family have eaten at this dining location in the past and although we had a prime seat right in front of the windows, it was dark and unfortunately we couldn't see any of the animals.

    As an added tip, on most evenings, you will find that there will be Cast Members outside Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge with night vision goggles that visitors can take turns using to see the animals in the dark. 

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
