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 entrée 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.

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Resort Highlight: Disney’s Riviera Resort

Disney’s Riviera Resort opened in December 2019, so it’s just been open for over a year. The beautiful resort is themed to Walt Disney’s travels through Europe and his love of the French and Italian Riviera. The special touches like a library, bistro, terraces, and manicured grounds at this resort invoke a feeling of being in such a place. The Riviera is considered a Disney Vacation Club property, and as such it offers only villa accommodations, including a Tower Studio that sleeps two, a Deluxe Studio that sleeps five, a One-Bedroom Villa that sleeps five, a Two-Bedroom Villa that sleeps nine, and a Three-Bedroom Villa that sleeps 12. One of my favorite things about the Villas are how the smaller rooms – particularly the Deluxe Studio – can comfortably accommodate a family of five. In addition to a queen bed, there is also a queen pull-down murphy-style bed as well as a twin pull-down bed. There is plenty of sitting room for the daytime once these beds are folded in, including a table
