    Hi, Visiting from the UK and looking to book Yak & Yeti restaurant for 2 people early Sept, but no res available. Are walk ups on the day available at this restaurant, as I have a Landrys Card? Thank you Marie

    Hey there Marie and welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm so glad to see you've come back to talk with us. The fact that you trust is so valuable and I hope I can live up to the expectations set by the panelists before me. I see you've chosen my favorite time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. Between all the amazing things events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival plus the 50th Anniversary Celebration, you'll find some new magic around every corner. 

    Yak & Yeti Restaurant is a very popular dining spot at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. I actually experienced it for the first time last December and enjoyed it so much that I booked it again for my entire family for our upcoming vacation! Now it was a bit of a struggle getting that reservation and I very nearly missed it myself. To try to get a meal at this particular eatery for your party of 2, here's what I'd tell most people to do.

    1. Advanced Dining Reservations change all the time. People cancel for all sorts of reasons. You still have time to keep checking availability with your My Disney Experience app. I would keep checking right up until the day before visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and even the morning of. Lots of people cancel the day before to try to avoid the cancellation fees.

    2. If that reservation simply never materializes, why not head over to Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes. There are definitely some tasty treats at this Quick-Service setup that hearken to the flavors you're looking for.  

    Now I was able to get in touch with a Cast Member at Yak & Yeti Restaurant and I was informed that because you are a Landry's Select Club Member you are able to walk up and show your card. You'll then be placed on a waitlist. So you may be able to add this Asian-inspired eatery to your dining list after all! 

    Marie, that card may just save the Disney day. I'm wishing you all the pixie dust and that things will work out for you smoothly during your stay. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
