Disney’s Animal Kingdom® | Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant

Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant is a must-see entertainment/retail/restaurant adventure within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World® Resort. Yak & Yeti™ complements the popular Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain™ attraction by giving visitors the option of dining in an immersive sit-down Asian restaurant or visiting the theatrical quick service offering. The centerpiece of the project is the 250-seat sit-down restaurant that includes outdoor seating for 350. Designed to resemble a small village in the lowlands of Nepal near Mount Everest, the exterior and interior is established by use of story and actual artifacts to achieve a real world authenticity.
