Sanaa and Flying Fish Cafe


Jason and I did do two sit down restaurants during our stay at Disney. First, we stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and decided to take a walk over to the Kidani Village (the lobby for the Disney Vacation Club villas that are at the same resort) and have lunch at Sanaa. You can read our Yelp review here.

You'll find most of the photos of decor and the atmosphere at Sanaa. This is because we were seated at possibly the tiniest, strangest (in an inconvenient place) table ever. The bread service barely fit on our table, and when our actual meal came (we split a lamb kefta burger which was tasty) there was no room for my camera to be, let alone me risking knocking something off while focusing a photo.

Next up, a favorite of ours, the Flying Fish Cafe at the Boardwalk resort. You can check out the Yelp review here - though it's based on our trip from 2012, our experience this time was very similar.

First, let me show you some of the beauty of the resort. I think the Boardwalk area in general may be my favorite resort area, though I have never actually stayed at one of the resorts. The Boardwalk itself makes me feel like I'm running around Bioshock Infinite. The turn of the century, vintage boardwalk decor is to die for. Note: the creepiest chair ever we found in the lobby in the photos below.

Super creepy, right?!

Obvious by the photo above, it was night by the time we got in the restaurant, and being sat in a corner where lighting was fairly awful, but the food was SO good. The photo of the steak and fish does it no justice guys.

  1. I remember talking with you about how we both loved the Flying Fish! I just love the Boardwalk and I'll definitely be staying there the next time we head to Disney. I'm pretty sure I also had the potato-wrapped snapper - it was amazing. I love their whimsical carnival tasting dessert, too!
