    Hi Moms, Coming to WDW in September, are there any American style restaurants in AK where you can possibly see animals while you are eating? Thanks

    Hi, Margaret!  There aren't any restaurants in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park that have a view of the savanna.  You might grab a delicious barbecue meal at Flame Tree Barbecue, then transport your lunch to a location that allows you to watch some of the animals in the other exhibits.  

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge does have a restaurant that overlooks the savanna.  You can check out Sanaa, which has windows that open out onto the savanna, but the food there is primarily and Indian theme cuisine.  You will find some familiar things - like beef short ribs and a sustainable fish option - but definitely not an American menu.

    I hope this gives you some help with your planning!
