New Desserts at Sanaa

Hey there, Disney foodies Are you ready to embark on a culinary safari that promises to tantalize your taste buds like never before? Well, buckle up because, the culinary team Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani VIllage, has just unveiled a lineup of new desserts at Sanaa that are as wild and wonderful as the savannah itself. Launching on March 6, 2024, these treats are not just desserts; they’re a journey to the heart of Africa, inspired by the majestic animals of the savannah.

Family-Friendly Feast with a Sweet Twist

Sanaa has always been the go-to spot for families looking to savor the rich tapestry of African cooking with a delightful Indian twist. Imagine sitting under the graceful branches of an acacia tree, surrounded by the vibrant atmosphere of an East African spice market, decorated with handcrafted wares. The experience at Sanaa is nothing short of magical, offering a feast for the senses even before the main course arrives.

Start your culinary adventure with the famous Indian-style bread service, featuring nine exotic accompaniments ranging from sweet mango chutney to fiery red chile sambal. As you move on to the entrées, you’re greeted with an array of choices from tender meats and seafood slow-cooked in gravy, like the mouthwatering butter chicken, to a variety of vegetarian delights. And let’s not forget the kiddos! With options like fish, beef burgers, and pizza, even the pickiest of eaters will leave with happy tummies.

A Sip of the Wild

Pair your meal with a selection of wines from South Africa, beers from Kenya, or specialty cocktails like the Malawi Mango Margarita. For those preferring a non-alcoholic treat, the tropical juice and berry smoothies are as refreshing as a breeze on the savannah.

Dining with a View

What sets Sanaa apart is not just its food but the breathtaking views of African wildlife right outside your window. Dine alongside gazelles, zebras, giraffes, and more, as over 200 birds and hoofed animals from over 30 species roam the lush Sunset Savanna. The interior, adorned with traditional artisan and market goods, further immerses you in the spirit of Africa.
