    Visiting Animal Kingdom on day 1 and booked Sanaa for dinner at 5.15. How do we get from park to lodge and how much time should we allow? How do I arrange a savannah view table? We are staying at Yacht club. I am assuming we can get the shuttle back.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I've heard such good things about Sanaa that I can't wait to dine there myself! 

    It's very easy to get to this restaurant from Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.  Just hop on the bus headed to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.  It's a very short ride.  Be sure to disembark at Kidani Village, not Jambo House, as Sanaa is in the newest part of this resort.  Allow at least thirty minutes to get from the theme park to the restaurant, only because you never know if a bus will be waiting for you at the theme park, or whether you will need to wait a few minutes for one to arrive. 

    When you check-in at Sanaa, be sure to let them know you would prefer a savanna view table.  Tell them you'd be willing to wait a bit longer for one, if that is the case.  You may improve your chances of getting this kind of table if you arrive a bit early for your reservation.  (Arriving 15 minutes in advance of your reservation time is always a good idea). 

    To get back to your resort, take the short bus ride back to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and then transfer to a Yacht Club-bound bus there.

    Have a lovely dinner at Sanaa!
