    I see that Saana lounge accepts meal plans. It’s it quick service? Snack? Or sit down ?

    Jambo, A, and welcome to planDisney! You'll be arriving in the savanna at any moment, so I hope your visit is off to a roaring start. The Disney Dining Plan is a fabulous way to enjoy meals during your trip, so let's look at how plans work at Sanaa Lounge.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorite spots with its gorgeous theming and grounds. You never know what exotic creatures you'll run into! The Sannaa Lounge is a hidden gem if you're looking for a tucked-away spot to unwind with some tasty bites and drinks. 

    I chatted with a friendly Cast Member who said that lounges vary in how they use or accept dining plans. Since reservations can't be made at most lounges, your best bet is to ask about dining plans at the location.

    One of my pals dined at Nomad Lounge recently and said this location accepted the Disney Dining Plan and took one Table Service credit, which included a small plate and a standard beverage. However, since information could be subject to change, the most up-to-date information will be available at Sanaa Lounge.

    Many lounges don't offer a dessert option, so my tip is to use your Table Service credits elsewhere to get the most for your money. You can always check walk-up availability for the main dining room at Sanaa. In your My Disney Experience app, search for any restaurant using the search icon at the bottom of the screen. You'll see "Join Walk-Up List" on the restaurant page if this is available. You can also click "Reservations" to see available dining times. 

    A, I hope your Walt Disney World Resort visit is full of fun, food, and magic! Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
