Yak and Yeti....when?


#1

We have been waiting so long for a nice dinner experience at AK and it sounds like the Y&Y is going to be great! All over the web, it says opening Fall 2007 - but WDW DINE has no info on it - any insiders know what’s happening?

:laugh: Den

I had asked that question a while back, and no one was able to answer.

I’m completely stumped because Disney doesn’t even list it on there site as “Opening (is it October 17? That sounds right…).” I guess you could call and ask about it… I’ll be making some ressies soon, so I’ll see if I can get any info, then.


#3

This is on AllEars:

The Yak & Yeti restaurant opening has been pushed back to November 14, 2007. (It was previously reported that the opening would be October 8.)


#4

Yes, it’s been delayed and they’re not going to start taking reservations until they’re absolutely sure of the opening. I hope they’re open by the time we get there, I’d like to check it out.


#5

The last time I was there, it didn’t look close to being ready to open (though they did well at getting Teppan Edo ready for yesterday, after it looked far from ready-for-prime-time not too long ago).

I’ll get some photos this weekend.

I wanted to try them out but I didn’t want to get there and they are closed.I have read that they were behind schedule and figured I will try in April instead.


#7

We want to try it when we go in Febraury also! When we were there in the beginning of september it didn’t look to close to opening


#8

I don’t think any time soon. Two weeks ago, they still hadn’t put the exterior sheathing over the insulation. This baby is a good two months from opening if it’s a day. However, two months is December 8, which if you look, is still “fall 2007”. Remember, it’s fall until December 21.


#9

I am there Dec 1-8th :ohmy: and then off to Disney’s Vero Beach. Hey, if not this time - next time - but we’ll keep the fingers crossed.

I enjoy so many of the resturants, but there is something about trying something brand new.


#10

Disney is hiring CM’s for this location Thur, Friday and Sat. I believe the ad said that training would begin next week. Hopefully it will open sooner than we think!


#11

I hope so! It may have sped up building since the last time I was there. :slight_smile:

I think the most recent opening date I have seen is November 15th from the WDW report on the mouseplanet.com website. PLEASE LET IT BE SO!! :wink:

I will be there at that time and am really looking forward to having a heaping helping of Yak and Yeti… MMMMMMmmmmmMMMMmm! :happy:


#15

What about Tusker House? Has there been any more word about that? I know its supposed to re open in November as well, but I was wondering about what the buffet would be.


#16

I thought I’d heard that Tusker was open or would be very shortly and that they’re taking reservations.


#17

Disney can really turn on the speed when it comes to finishing a project. I wouldn’t be surprised if they do get it finished by the middle of November. I’m hoping, anyway.


#18

Sometimes they are slow (I’m hearing that SE might take much longer, but I was told that a couple of months ago). You just never know! I hope it is sooner than later.
