Just wodnered if anyone had been to the new part of the animal kingdom lodge yet or tried the new sanaa restaurant?
Oh I can't wait to stay in the official new DVC rooms! I stayed in one of the old rooms converted a couple years back & it was very, very nice but really want to see the new building with all the new stuff. Especially the pool!!
We have eaten there and really enjoyed it. Keith, check at AKL and see if the concierge can get you the ADR.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 173210

Thanks John! I'm studying Terry's trip report at the moment and I think we'll have to try and get there during our stayOriginally Posted by uscwest, post: 173273
OMG! We've just come from a weekend stay at Kidani Village. It was so wonderful that Herself wants to buy more points there! That's amazing since we already have quite a few DVC points in our original contract.
The pool area is wonderful. So beautiful and relaxing and very themed! The kids will love it, but adults will too. The bloody Marys at the pool bar are a nice way to start a Sunday.
We dined at Sanaa on a walk up. The new Disney ADR system is TERRIBLE. I can't believe that they aren't losing tons of money. We asked at check in about Sanaa that night. No, she didn't recommend a walk up, but feel free to use the house phone to call for an ADR. We went down to Sanaa and asked. Yep. They could seat us right then. Of course, we didn't want to eat then. They couldn't do an ADR. We went back up to concierge and asked about an ADR, and was told the system wouldn't allow it for the time we wanted. When we were ready to eat we went back to Sanaa and walked in!
I'm telling you, the ADR system is beyond useless.
At any rate, I do have photos and am hoping to have some moments to make them small enough to post.
Sanaa: Food was ok. We were totally unimpressed with the server. She did start out by saying she was "having a day." Yep. She was!
Will report more later.
We loved Kidani... we thought the buildings are better placed around the savannah, with magnificent views of the animals!
The lookouts with the rocking chairs are by far better than the ones and Jambo House.
Sanaa... we had a DELICIOUS meal, it was one of the highlights of the trip.... Just thinking about it makes my mouth water... and we were seated very close to a window, so watching the animals go by while we ate was simple spectacular
