    How long does it take to get from Port Orleans Riverside to Sanaa at Animal Kingdom lodge via the buses? Trying to figure out how early to leave for a 6:30 ADR.

    Hi Melissa! Even when I'm not staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, I love to dine at the restaurants there so I can stroll out to the savanna and gaze at the giraffes and zebras after dinner. To reach Sanaa from the Port Orleans Riverside, you'll need to take the boat to Downtown Disney and then board a bus headed to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I'd plan on the trip taking about an hour since you have to use multiple transportation methods. (If you're in a hurry, a taxi will get you to the restaurant from your resort in about 20 minutes.)

    Have a magical vacation! Come visit me again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! I'm happy to help!
