    Already booked for 1 week first week of September. Yak and Yeti has been recommended for dinner during our day in Disney's Animal Kingdom, considering Tiffins as well. What is your recommendation?

    Hi Jim!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I am always happy to help with dining recommendations!

    For my family Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant is always a must-do when we visit Disney's Animal Kingdom. We actually just dined there for lunch last week on our most recent trip. We love the food and the adventurous ambiance of the restaurant. Having said that, I have also dined at Tiffins Restaurant on a few occasions and love the dining experience. As you may have noticed, Tiffins Restaurant is a signature dining experience, so if budget is a concern, I would recommend Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant. 

    Reservations often get booked early for Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant, so I strongly suggest that you make an advanced dining reservation now. When I checked for your arrival date, there was only one dinner reservation remaining at Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant and there were several available for Tiffins Restaurant. If you are also looking for a character meal experience, we had a wonderful breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom!

    As you plan out your meals, I recommend that you do advanced dining reservations for most of your stay. Although Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering is a great option, my family prefers to have guaranteed seating when we dine. Having those dining reservations gives us a chance to take a break from the frantic park rush each day!

    Jim, go ahead and make all of your dining reservations. If you are unable to secure a reservation, keep checking. Cancelations do happen and it is possible to get a last-minute reservation. Also, take advantage of the View Menu option on each restaurant's home page. You can check prices using the menus. I always check prices to be sure that I have a good estimate of our food costs for the trip. A few of our other favorite restaurants that happen to have fabulous window views include California Grill, Grand Floridian Cafe, and 'Ohana.

    Happy Planning!

    Magic and memories,
