    We are staying in the AKL in August with our son who will be 15 months old. Both my parents and in-laws will be with us. Can you recommend a good restaurant (moderate range) for dinner in AKL or something pretty close by but not in a park?

    Hi Alyssa!

    There are some great dining options right in Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    A top recommendation would be Boma - Flavors of Africa right in Jambo House at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. This restaurant features an expansive and delicious dinner buffet with tons of options ranging from North American staples to interesting, exotic African dishes. The various 'pods' along the buffet feature choices to please all ages and all tastes! Be sure to indulge in a Zebra Dome (or two) for dessert if you decide to dine at this wonderful spot!

    Another fantastic option in the moderate range for dinner would be Sanaa in Animal Kingdom's Kidani Village. Here, your taste bus will be tantalized by authentic Indian and African inspired dishes.Sanaa is Swahili for "artwork" and your food will be prepared and presented to you as beautifully as the name suggests. Stunning savannah views make this a great choice for dining with the family.

    I love Disney Dining and would be pleased to assist you further should you require further recommendations or assistance. I hope you'll visit me again soon Alyssa!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel.
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
