    How long does it take to get from Animal Kingdom to Animal Kingdom Lodge. Making 5:00 PM ADR for Sanaa. Once dropped off by Disney transportation how far to walk to Sanna and how to get there once dropped off at resort? Cost and travel time for taxi too?

    Hi, Nicholas!

    We absolutely LOVE Sanaa, and often stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas-Kidani Village, so I can promise you that it will take about 5 minutes for the Resort Bus to get to Kidani Village once it departs Animal Kingdom.

    Buses from Animal Kingdom stop first at Kidani Village, so hop off there (you can check with the driver if you're at all uncertain. Once on Animal Kingdom Lodge property, the buses go straight at the stop sign to get to Kidani, but turn right when heading to Jambo House.) From the bus stop at Kidani Village, you have about a 3-5 minute walk to the entrance to Sanaa, which is one flight down from the main lobby. However, the beauty of the lobby and the view of the savannah might make that journey a few minutes longer, as they are each difficult to pass by without a longer look.

    Once you are finished your fabulous meal at Sanaa, head back to the bus stop. Each park bus will head next to Jambo House, so I suggest that you determine your final destination at that point (a park? wherever you left your car? a resort?) and hop onto the Resort Bus which will get you in the right direction.

    No need to worry about taxis between Animal Kingdom and Kidani Village...they are literally right next to each other.

    Enjoy your dinner! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them, especially about the menu at Sanaa. It's one of our favorites!
