    Can I park at Animal Kingdom Lodge if I have a reservation at Sanaa?

    Jambo, Marco!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for bringing us a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort dining question. You'll be enjoying a marvelous meal in a wild setting very soon, Marco. I'd be happy to help you prepare for a delectable dining experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    Though it's incredibly popular and receives rave reviews amongst Guests, Sanaa is one of the few restaurants on property that I actually haven't experienced yet. (It's definitely on my "must-do" list because the menu looks absolutely phenomenal!) You'll be pleased to know that, at the time of writing, a Guest with dining reservations at a Disney Resort hotel should be permitted to park a personal vehicle at the resort, pending availability. Just be sure to have your reservation details ready in case the security guard at the resort entrance needs to confirm the booking to allow you entry into the parking lot! Remember, Sanaa is located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, so you'll want to be sure to park there and not at Jambo House for the easiest access.

    Marco, after you've wrapped up your Sanaa dining experience, I encourage you to head down to the Pembe Overlook to view the animals that call the savanna home! You may even stumble upon the resort's nightly campfire activities, depending on the time. While you may have a spectacular view of the savanna from your dining table at Sanaa, visiting the animals at the Pembe Overlook might allow you the opportunity to speak with an Animal Specialist Cast Member who can share lots of fun details!

    I hope you've found this information helpful, Marco. I wish you a delicious and memorable dining experience at Sanaa! If there are any other ways planDisney can help you maximize the magic during your time at the Walt Disney World Resort, you're always welcome to revisit us here. We'll be right here ready to help you plan your next adventure!

    See ya real soon,
