Yak and Yeti Review

Yak and Yeti restaurant is located in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.  It is a bright blue house
with two floors for dining during lunch and dinner.  The second floor has wonderful views of the streets below.  The owners have graciously opened their doors to welcome all travelers from around the world with a full service restaurant, bar and a quick service area as well.

When you walk in it is hard to know where to look first.  There are decorations resembling ones' travels across many areas of Asia.  Featuring many unique statues, displays of armor, cabinets full of artifacts, specialty boxes elegantly displayed on beautiful tables, paintings and more.

Your servers greet you with a smile; mine couldn’t wait to hear all about my adventures and to tell me all about his.  The food is of a Pan/Asian Style, which is a variety of favorite dishes found across Asia.  At our table we started with Pan Fried Dumplings which were full of flavor and cooked to perfection, it came with a side of soy sauce.  The entrĂ©e was a Miso Glazed Salmon - the best Salmon dish I have ever had!  It was so moist and flaky with a dark rich glaze.  We also had Fried Wontons for dessert which are little crunchy goodness stuffed with a creamy sweet filling served with pineapples and ice cream.  This was so yummy!  The average dinner may range from $15.00 to $30.00.  Reservations are recommended and can be made 180 days prior to your vacation.

You can also sit at the bar, grab a snack and enjoy one of the many unique specialty drinks such as Emperor Margarita or a draft beer such as Safari Amber.  There are alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available. You must be 21 to sit at the bar.

If you want to grab a quick bite you can walk up to the window at Yak and Yeti Local Foods Cafe.  Here you can choose from Sweet and Sour Chicken, Egg Rolls, Lo Mein, Fried Rice and more. You can order a drink such as frozen lemonade or even sit down with an ice cold beer.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
