Sanaa | Animal Kingdom Lodge

Since staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge last year, I couldn't wait to get back! Although we didn't stay here this time round, it was a must that we went and enjoyed a lovely evening of animal watching and great food! 

We visited Jambo House for breakfast at Boma - which is amazing, best breakfast I have EVER experienced! (it's a must for me when I visit!) This evening we headed to Kidani Village at the Animal Kingdom Lodge resort, to dine at the lovely - Sanaa!

Inside is beautiful - this area of the resort is where the villas are located so the lobby is much smaller than the main hotel over at Jambo, but is just as amazing! It is still unbelievably breathtaking to see the animals walking around the savannah through the windows - and up close!

Sanaa is amazing - it was my favourite place to eat last year so we went back and I was still just as impressed. The design and detail put into the restaurant is so well thought out and very intricate, it is full of culture and makes you feel as if you are actually sitting in the heart of Africa. Whilst looking out the windows to the most amazing animals as you eat your dinner, is not something you get to do often - which makes it so special.

To start we shared the  Indian Style bread, which was a range of different naan breads with lots of dips from mild to spicy - it was so tasty, makes my mouth water thinking about it!

For the main I chose the choice of two curry dishes (butter chicken and spiced lamb) with pilaf rice which was beautiful and the flavours went together perfect!

Last but not least is the amazing dessert - banana cheesecake! I am a huge fan of cheesecake it is definitely my best dessert and when I saw they done banana flavoured this sounded so good I had to give it a try! The flavour was lovely, not too overpowering just a slight hint of banana but what made me love it more was the bed of pistachios which the cheesecake sat on. It was one of the nicest desserts I have ever had, the flavours of the pistachio and banana went perfect and can we please take a moment for the presentation - amazing right?

This is still one of my favourite Disney restaurants, as usual the cast members were fantastic - Disney employees definitely make you feel welcome and well looked after! It is one of my top recommendations if you are visiting, you won't be disappointed! This was included in the Disney Dining Plan which I have talked about in my previous Disney dinner post. along with the majority of every restaurant, anywhere in Disney - so make sure to check that out before your next visit!

Hope you aren't feel too hungry after that mouthwatering post - have a lovely Sunday :)
