    I'm trying to make reservations for yak and yatti on April 15th for dinner time and it's not allowing me

    Hiya, Kristen! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with your question. Like the Genie, I'm here to help make your vacation wishes come true--now let's make some magic!

    Yak & Yeti Restaurant is one of our family's favorite places to enjoy dinner when we visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! The food is amazing and this restaurant is a great choice for a more adventurous meal. There are lots of shareable options including the tasty Ahi Tuna Nachos, and some great vegetarian dishes as well!

    Kristen, it appears that the reservations for April 15 are currently booked up, as sometimes happens with popular dining destinations at Walt Disney World Resort. I logged on to the My Disney Experience website and also tried to book a reservation at Yak & Yeti and there was very limited availability. For April 15, I saw one 3:30 PM slot, which you may still be able to book!

    My best advice is to keep checking back as your April vacation approaches. Guests change their plans frequently and I've almost always been able to find the dining reservation I am looking for within the last week or so before our check-in--including some sought-after spots like Cinderella's Royal Table

    Another great dining option at Animal Kingdom is Tiffins--my oldest daughter and I had the most incredible meal there recently! And just a short bus ride away are the outstanding restaurants at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas
    • Boma - Flavors of Africa (Animal Kingdom Lodge) is a fantastic buffet meal featuring delightful fare including some exotic African-inspired dishes. Don't miss a dessert mainstay-the famous Zebra Domes!
    • Jiko - The Cooking Place (Animal Kingdom Lodge) is a Signature Dining restaurant that offers an amazing atmosphere and a fine dining experience. 
    • Sanaa is located at Animal Kingdom Villas and it is one of our family's top three Walt Disney World restaurants!  The bread service is legendary, and you can enjoy your meal while watching some of the wildlife wander through the savanna. 
    Well, Kristen, I'll be crossing my fingers that you can find the dining reservation you're hoping for--or perhaps fall in love with a new restaurant! Thanks again for visiting planDisney, and please don't hesitate to reach out again if we can help with any other questions you might have!

    Stay Magical!
