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 next door 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.  Featured are many unique statues, displays of armor, cabinets full of artifacts, specialty boxes elegantly displayed on beautiful tables, paintings and more.

We started our meal with some of the delicious specialty cocktails they offer, Pink Himalayan: Tanqueray Gin, Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, Passion Fruit and Lemon Grass Flavors, Salt Rim and the South Seas Traveler: Created by the Yak and Yeti Bartenders...Myer's Original Dark Rum and Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Monin Lychee Syrup, and citrus juices.  Both were refreshing and delicious. 


I'm a sucker for a dumpling so of course we had to have an order of the Pork Pot Stickers, served pan seared or steamed, with soy lime dipping sauce.  We opted for seared and were once again happy with our choice here!  These were delicious bites and the soy lime sauce was the perfect compliment. 


When it was time for our entrée selection it was so hard to choose, the menu has so many great options ranging from noodle bowls to wok entrees to items from the grill. The food here is of a Pan-Asian Style, which is a variety of favorite dishes found across Asia.  On our visit there was a hibachi grill special surf and turf, grilled steak and fried shrimp served with rice and veggies which we opted for along with a classic sweet and sour chicken (tempura chicken, ginger, garlic, bell peppers, pineapple.)  Both dishes were quite delicious but the star was really the surf and turf special.  



The portion sizes were quite generous so we were too full for dessert, but have heard great things about the fried wontons and would definitely give them a try next time! 

You can also sit at the bar, grab a small plate or sharable and enjoy one of the many unique specialty drinks such as the Yak Attack or a draft beer such as Safari Amber.  There are alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available. 

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.

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

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic décor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
