When does the new Yak 'n Yeti table service restaurant open in AK? Are they accepting reservations yet?

When I walked by that area on Sunday, there is just a wall up. The wall has posters up about coming soon...Yak and Yetti

Uh-oh. If it opens before the end of June then I may need to reschedule a TS of mine... Right now, we have just 2 CS meals planned at AK. I wonder if anyone has tried calling for an ADR?

I called on Sunday. The CM didn't know what I was talking about, but looked under the list of AK food places (included CS, carts etc.) and it didn't come up. Sigh. I guess that we'll all have to play the waiting game.

I wonder what kind of food they'll serve. We're not very fond of the restaurants at AK. You've roused my curiousity!

I found this on WDW magic.
Landry's has acquired the majority interest in Schussler Creative's new Asian themed eatery (which is expected to open by summer 2007) inside Disney's Animal KingdomŪ Theme Park. This Asian-themed restaurant with retail is reminiscent of the western Himalayan foothills in India and Nepal, featuring a rural village called Anandapur in a jungle with a tiny town-like mass at its center. Asia will offer full service table dining, as well as quick service food. This Asian-Fusion concept will feature Asian decor, complete with Asian antiques, as well as a retail component that will offer Asian goods ranging from Sushi plates to chopsticks and fine teapots.

Are they seriously calling this restaurant "YAK & Yetti" I don't think I could bring myself to eat at a place with the word yak in the name. :sick:

This sounds interesting. I can't wait to see a menu. Maybe I will hold an ADR open for our trip in Dec. It might be a fun to try! Melissa

I also just might have to change an ADR. I hope it is opened by September!

I was a travel agent for over 10 years and one of my good customers would travel to Nepal on business, the hotel he stayed at (true story!) was called the Yak and Yeti. :goodvibes

I haven't heard this name in years :) very cool

This was in the old days, we had to book by telex machine.

I found this description on allearsnet.com today. It says that the name will be "Ying and Yak"

"Coming Summer 2007 - Ying and Yak, an Asian themed restaurant will debut in the Village of Anandapur in Animal Kingdom's Asia in Summer 2007. It will offer both table and counter service dining options, as well as house retail space with Asian-inspired merchandise, such as sushi plates and fine teapots. The restaurant will be operated by the Rainforest Cafe's Landry's Restaurants."

On the walls surrounding the future site, the posters says Yak and Yeti coming soon. But who knows, maybe that's just up to entertain us. (I'll have to look at it closer next time, and get pics. Maybe it did say Ying and Yak. It had a pic of the yeti on it, if I remember correctly.) The wall goes from part of Kali river and extends around the area where the monkeys were.

Very interesting as the same site, All Ears, has this picture posted and yet states Ying and Yak in a different page.

I still wonder if it will be on the DDP? I'm guessing since it's owned by the same people as the rainforest that it won't be - anyone have any ideas?

I once ate at a Tibetan restaurant, not in Tibet but in Bloomington, IN. (It's a college town and had/has a variety of interesting ethnic restaurants.) The food was unsurprisingly a combination of Chinese and Indian influences. But that's good!

Just passed the sign and construction area today. It definitely said Yak 'n Yeti....the above picture is the same one I took.

While I am excited to dine there....there goes the nice DDE discount at the counter service AK restaurants!!

I believe the name was originally supposed to be Ying & Yak but it's been changed.

It's possible that, because none of the Landry's restaurants take the discounts (I hear RFC at AK might take DDE after a certain hour), you'll still be able to get DDE at the counter service locations at AK. Although something might be negotiated about the dining plan because this restaurant is inside a theme park. Almost all restaurants inside the theme parks take the dining plan whether or not they are run by Disney.

what were they thinking with the yak and yeti thing. I agree, willbe hard to get past the yak part of the restaurant. (Hopefully there is not truth in advertising :eek: )

If this follows suit withthe other Landrys restruants it will not partipate in DDP or DDE

Which hopefully means DDE at AK CS will be preserved....loved getting a discount on DH's Beer at Flame Tree:thumbsup2

I did a google search for yak and yeti restaurant and found a few different ones, and they seemed kinda fancy too, I found nothing about the one to be in AK. So the name is not just exclusive to just one place,as wierd as the name is.

Made my 180-day ADRs last week, and asked. It's not in the system yet.

Doesn't Rainforest do an AP discount though? If so then this place might as well.

I don't see any thing wrong with the name. I only thought of the animal when I heard yak. Try to think of it that way.

I could stand the name, just hope they don't have yak or yeti on the menu!

Ditto! :rotfl2:

Am I the only one who never heard of "yak" as a synonym for vomit before this name came up? Barf, puke, hurl, ralph, heave, retch, upchuck, toss cookies, you name it, I thought I'd heard them all, but not yak. :confused3

Am I the only one who never heard of "yak" as a synonym for vomit before this name came up? :sad2: Nah, I just think of yak (as in the animal) and yeti (as in the abominable), both part of the scene at Expedition Everest. Made sense to me, and, as long as I'm not eating yak (or yeti), I'm fine!
