Looking forward to your review of Yak & Yeti (I won't tell you our thoughts...yet).
Thank you! Yes, we would like to try Kona breakfast in the future (if that ever happens...sob!) we went back to Ohana breakfast this trip - a review of that coming up soon. Those pot stickers were heavenly!

Yes - this was our first Poly dinner and we weren't disappointed. I think you can always hear differing opinions on the WDW restaurants but sometimes you've just got to give it a go and make up your own mind.

Thank you merry mouse! CHH is a very nice counter service option - it's a bit more civilised than some of the others can be. The Lapu Lapu was $13 dollars - and worth every cent! One of my goals this trip was to try as many cocktails as I could. I did pretty well!

Yes, we couldn't decide between Ohana and Kona - we plumped for Kona but I bet we would have enjoyed Ohana too. We just love the Poly!

I am jealous - we loved OKW and are missing it like mad! Thank you for reading!

I'd better get on with some school work now - but I hope to post another update later tonight!

Thursday 12th August - Animal Kingdom

For lunch today we had an ADR at Yak and Yeti. We'd tried the counter service last time and we fancied having a meal at the table service equivalent.

We'd heard some good reports of this place and we were intrigued to try it for ourselves.

It was a particularly hot day so we were glad to shelter in this cool restaurant - which is beautifully themed.

We soon all got refreshing drinks:



I decided to have iced tea instead of continuing my quest for cocktails - it was a bit too hot outside to drink too much alcohol. But I do regret not trying a Yak Attack.

Trisha was our server and she was really perky and chatty. She was very helpful and could not do enough for us.

We decided not to have starters and went straight for the main courses. Simon tried the steak and shrimp:



He really enjoyed this - I tried a bit of the steak and it was delicious.

Kate had been eyeing up the Mahi Mahi and she was not disappointed:



She hoovered this up - it was an enormous piece of fish and she loved it.

Sarah went for the crispy honey chicken:



This was just Sarah's perfect type of food. I tried a piece of chicken and the honey sauce was lovely.

I was tempted by the steak and shrimp but I decided to be impulsive and try the maple tamarind chicken:



I did not regret it! This was wonderful - the chicken was very moist and the flavours were delicate. I also loved the rice it came with.

Sarah was too full for dessert, Kate had the chocolate cake and Simon had the sorbet which was very light and refreshing after a big main course!

There was only one thing I wanted to try - and Trisha also recommended them - the fried wontons!



You know when you read about something so much, and so many people say how wonderful something is and that you must try it? And then you go and try it and it's a disappointment?

Well........this was not the case at all! These were AMAZING! Probably my favourite dessert of the whole holiday. They were just heavenly. I particularly loved the vanilla honey drizzle, the wontons were deliciously crisp and the fried cheese went perfectly with the drizzle. Add to that lovely fresh strawberries and delicious, creamy ice cream. I was sold!

Seriously, we all really enjoyed our meal at the Yak n Yeti. The food was delicious and the service was great. We would definitely go back.

Without the dining plan it would have cost: $143-49

We paid $28-49 - for one of our drinks and the tip.

Crumble rating - 7 out of 10

That evening we went back to MK and ended up eating in Pecos Bill's for the first time. I tried a taco salad which I enjoyed, Simon and Kate had burgers and Sarah had a chicken caesar salad. The food was good but it was very busy in there and we were feeling quite tired after a busy day.

Ha ha! Yes - definitely English! That breakfast at Manchester airport was really good.

Olivia's was really good for the first night - gave us chance to catch our breath. I never tried the CS at OKW but Simon did and said it was good.

We loved OKW!
