This Day in Disney History

November 14, 2007:  The new Yak and Yeti Restaurant opens near the base of Mt. Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

This sit down restaurant is in the Asia section of the park and has some notably good Asian cuisine. With a distinct lack of full service restaurants and Animal Kingdom, Yak and Yeti was definitely a welcome addition!
