Yak n yeti or Tusker House lunch?

3 adults, I child-it's my dd's birthday trip. Not her first trip! We're seeing the princesses, but no other character meals. One of the other adults, it's her first trip to Disney. We've never eaten at either... What do you prefer and why?

Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

Never been to Yak & Yeti, but we had lunch at Tusker House during our Nov trip and were pleasantly surprised! My husband and I both thought it was the best meal of our trip actually. Lots of wonderful flavors going on, lots of different options to choose from. LOVED it!

Tusker House for sure. I've had two excellent lunches there. It's the best eatery in AK.

I didnt care for the lunch at Tusker house at all. Didnt care for the selection there. Breakfast is way better. I'd go for Yak/Yeti.

I'm not sure how old your dd will be, but I would do Tusker House. I think it has a nice selection and characters. Yak and Yeti is good but not great and no characters.

I agree with GoofyInToronto. I'd go with Yak and Yeti.

We've eaten at Tusker House breakfast several times & love it. The characters are fun & the buffet is good.
We ate at Tusker House lunch our last trip & we didn't like it as much as breakfast. Just weren't real impressed with the buffet.
We've eaten at Yak & Yeti several times at lunch. Our next trip we'll be eating there again. The ribs are really good & the mango pie is too.

I'd recommend Yak & Yeti...

We have loved everything we've tried there and found the food at Tusker House to be too adventurous for us.

Tusker was the best meal we had from all of the parks. granted we did not try too many sit downs but the food was fantastic, the characters great and spent a lot of time with everyone- including a kids conga line led by daisy-the theming in Ak is so wnderful
