    Hello! Can picky eater adults order off the kids menu at Sanaa? Also, can a window seat be requested ahead of time or is there a good time to try to book dinner so it’s easier to get a window seat and see the animals? Thanks!

    Hi Melanie. Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question.

    First of all, you are arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort on my birthday and didn't invite me?! Is there room for me to tag along? Seriously though, you are speaking my language with this question because I'm passionate about dining at the resort and Sanaa in Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is such a great restaurant! The atmosphere and food are so unique. Be sure to order the Indian-style Bread Service. Not only is it delicious, but did you really go to Sanaa if you didn't have the bread service? I think not!

    If you are looking to request a specific dining location in the restaurant, my best advice is to arrive at the restaurant early and ask the friendly host. Please keep in mind that these types of requests are not guaranteed, but if it's possible, Cast Members will usually do their best to accommodate your request. This goes for any time that you'd like to book.

    Melanie, I'm going to make a little suggestion. If it's possible for you to eat at this restaurant in the afternoon, that is my preferred time. While I would eat here at any time, if I'm looking to see the animals, I try to book for lunch or late afternoon. The reason for this is that it's easier to see the animals during the daytime. You can also explore the resort a little bit before or after your meal and watch the animals in their viewing areas. Or, do as I do and find a rocking chair on the outside porch to the right of the lobby and just relax while watching the animals go by! This is much harder to do at night.

    No matter when you dine, you are bound to have a wonderful experience and a great vacation. If you like your experience at Sanaa, I'd also recommend Tiffins Restaurant and Nomad Lounge in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park as well as Boma - Flavors of Africa and Jiko - The Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Oh boy, I'm really hungry now. Are you sure there's no room for me in your party?

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out again in the future!

    Don't spend your time looking around for something you want that can't be found,
