    Spending 4/22/17 at Animal Kingdom, followed by an ADR at Sanaa at 7 pm. If Animal Kingdom closes at 7 pm that night, how do we get back to our resort, Art of Animation? Should we take bus to another park? All will be closed by 9 pm that night.

    Hi Tom!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Sanaa is one of my family's favorite dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort because we love the fantastic food, the atmosphere theming of the restaurant and the experience of enjoying the beautiful animals on the Savanna while we dine. The last time we dined Sanaa, beautiful cranes and ostriches came right up to our window while we were enjoying our lunch! I think the best way to get back to your resort will be to take a complimentary resort transportation bus from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to Disney Springs, where you will be able to get a bus back to your resort. While hours are always subject to change, Disney Springs generally stays open until 12:00 a.m. every night. So buses will be available to take you from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to Disney Springs once you finish your dinner, where you can transfer to a bus to your vacation "home" at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.

    Be sure to check out some of the fantastic entertainment and shopping or enjoy a fantastic dessert from Amorette's Patisserie during your stop at Disney Springs! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
