When we’re spending time at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, we love to have dinner at the Yak and Yeti Restaurant.
This place has that perfect blend of Asian-inspired cuisine that I enjoy while providing some familiar options for the pickier people in your party. Since it’s part of the Landry’s family of restaurants, you can also use your Landry’s Select Card benefits. Read on to learn more about our last visit!
The Landry’s Select Card
By the way, if you don’t have a Landry’s Select Card, you’re really missing out, especially at Disney. I’m not an affiliate for them or anything, but we use the card at least once per year. To become a member, you pay a $25 fee that you can use at their restaurants. You also get a $25 birthday reward each year, and that’s like getting a meal for free. You get a period of time surrounding your birthday to use the benefit, so you don’t have to use it on the exact day of your birth. Another great feature is that when you show the card, you are bumped to the top of the line for seating. I still make an Advance Dining Reservation or ADR at Disney since we go during the busy summer season, but we use that perk in Branson, Missouri, at Saltgrass.
There are other locations in Disney that accept the Landry’s Select Card. At Disney Springs, you can use it at T-Rex or Rainforest Cafe. There is also a Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom; it’s pretty cool because it is right at the gate and has its own entrance to the park.
The Atmosphere at Yak and Yeti
The atmosphere in Yak and Yeti is a lot of fun.
It feels like the local Chinese place in town, but since it’s Disney, the details are amazing.
It’s definitely fun to look around.
For this visit, we were seated on the upper level. Our table was next to the railing, so we had a birdseye view of the dining area below.
The Food at Yak and Yeti
On thing Kristin likes about the T-Rex, Rainforest Cafe, and Yak and Yeti is the Icee in a collectible cup. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up with quite the collection at home that you’ll have to thin out occasionally. At Yak and Yeti, the Amanda the Panda Cup was on the menu.
An Icee sure hits the spot on a hot summer day at Disney!
She was also happy to order her familiar chicken strips from the kids’ menu.
If you’re familiar with Landry’s restaurants, especially at Disney, you may be familiar with the Kobe beef hamburger on the menu. This is one of Jeff’s favorite hamburgers anywhere. He likes his plain.
I tried something with some Asian flair. I had the Teriyaki chicken the pineapple, pepper, and onion skewer over coconut-ginger rice.
Our food was delicious; we didn’t have room for dessert. Our dinner was the perfect fuel for exploring Animal Kingdom after dark for the first time.
Yak and Yeti is a great choice of a table service restaurant for families at Animal Kingdom. In the summer, an indoor restaurant can be just what you need to cool off enough to keep exploring and make memories. Some of the places in Animal Kingdom may be a little exotic for kids, so this could be a great option. Keep Yak and Yeti in mind for your next trip!
