    WDW Dec. 13, can't decide between lunch at Tusker house or dinner at Sanaa. Will we be able to see the animals outside after dark? We already ate at Tusker house several years ago. Will be traveling with 4 y.o boy and 17 y.o. girl. Please decide for me

    As the African greeting goes - Jambo Kimberly!
    I love your exotic choice of restaurants to enjoy during your upcoming December 2014 vacation to Walt Disney World Resort; after all who doesn't deserve a little adventurous dining from time to time?!
    Sanaa is the beautiful and elegantly themed African/Indian fusion style restaurant located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. I believe that dining here has a slightly more adult feel, but none the less your young adventurer is sure to find plenty to please him on the children's menu.  
    The cleverly themed African market style Tusker House Restaurant is located inside Disney's Animal Kingdom Park and is a really super place to enjoy a buffet meal with your family. Both intrepid and cautious diners can easily select their own meals as they make their way around this bounteous buffet. 
    To avoid disappointment Advanced Dining Reservations are recommended for both these popular restaurants; speak with a Cast Member on 407 939 3463 or arrange via My Disney Experience.  For the best possible view of all the various African Savanna animals at Sanaa, I suggest making early dinner reservations.
    Dining at either restaurant would be amazing and is sure to take your taste buds on an African safari by using an array of different spices and menu choices! 
    If I can help sprinkle a little extra pixie dust on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation please pop back to ask me another question.
    Have a great Disney day.
