    We have reservations at Saana at the Animal Kingdom Resort and we will need to travel from our resort- Art of Animation to get there. What would be the best way to get there?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Belinda!

    Sanaa is one of those incredible Walt Disney World Resort experiences that I think everyone needs to try at least once. There is something truly magical about being able to gaze out at the animals on the savanna while you eat a delicious meal inspired by the diverse cultures of the countries of Africa. Make sure to try the Indian-style Bread Service and find out for yourself why it has become legendary among guests!

    The best way to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge from Disney's Art of Animation Resort is by using Minnie Van Service. Using the Lyft app, you can request that a friendly Disney Cast Member come pick you up at your Resort Hotel and take you straight to Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, which is the part of the Resort where Sanaa is located. You could also take a complimentary bus from the theme park you're spending the day at or you could use the same rideshare app you use at home to request a ride, and both of those forms of transportation would drop you off at the front of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. From there, you could either walk or take the internal shuttle to the area of the Resort Hotel where the restaurant is located.

    I hope this answers your question, Belinda, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
