    If we have reservations at Sanaa - How much is it to park there? Or do we get free parking if we commute from Animal Kingdom after already paying for parking in the park. What do other people do? Options buses from AK to Sanaa etc?

    Hey there, hi there Steven! Welcome, friend, and thank you for bringing us your question.

    It's a great time to be looking at dining experiences for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. You've got time now to lay out your plan and coordinate where you'll be, so it's perfect to have this much time to get your dining ducks in a row. 

    Steven, I'm happy to tell you there is no parking fee for Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village to just visit the resort for a meal. You are welcome to go and park your car there to enjoy dining at Sanaa.

    Other options include using Disney resort transportation. You can take a bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom to the resort, but you want to watch your timing with this option. If you've taken your car to the theme park, but your dining reservation is later in the evening, you want to make sure the park is still open when you're through dining so there is a bus back to the park to pick your car up. 

    Another option is the Minnie Van Service, which you can access through the rideshare app for Lyft. There are also other rideshare options and taxis you can snag at the theme parks.

    Steven, a must-do for my family at Sanaa at either lunch or dinner is the amazing bread service. I'd be falling down on the job if I didn't recommend it to you. The flavors and combinations are absolutely amazing, and it's well worth the trip over, no matter how you get there!

    Have the best time, Steven!
