For $25 you can sign up for the Landry’s club. Yak and Yeti is owned by Landry’s, as well as Rainforest Cafe and T Rex. You get the $25 back as a credit on your bill, and instead of wrestling with ADRs, you just show up and get priority seating. It’s basically a jump the line card.
Omg WHAT?! How did I not know lol. I forgot Y&Y was Landry’s owned! Hmmm…let me look into this…
So you don’t even MAKE a reservation?? What if they’re busy? It seems so foreign to me to not even make one lol
You don’t need a reservation and it doesn’t matter how busy they are.
Wow I had no idea, so it really is a jump the line card? Could you check in this way and still have an hour wait?
Not unless nobody left in the space of that hour. You get the next available table.
Honestly, I think you wait less with the card. One year I didn’t have it, and we waited an HOUR after our ADR at Rainforest, in part bc we kept getting bumped for Landry’s card holders.
You will literally get the next table that can accommodate your party with the card. If course if there’s other cardholders ahead of you, you’ll have to wait your turn.
ADRs done! No “availability” for Yak &Yeti - I think they just haven’t opened up time slots b/c it’s Landry’s owned - BUT got the Landry’s card so thanks for the tip on that!!
DID get everything else we wanted or a close enough version lol:
'Ohana had to be booked w/ my party of 4 + my friend’s party of 5, nothing for 9, anyone know if we can call ahead of time and ask to be seated together?
Liberty Tree - got lunch for 9, a little earlier than preferred (got 11:15 but would like 12 -12:30) but will keep an eye on that. Same question as 'Ohana, anyone know if we booked two parties, 4 + 5 if they could seat together?
Sanaa- lunch for 4
50’s PT - lunch for 4
Mama Melrose - F! dining packages not open yet so we booked my party of 4 +. her 5 (for now). If packages open up we will go for one of those and cancel this
Whispering Canyon - breakfast for 9 :)
I have never had to split ADR’s but I have read it’s generally accommodated. I have read the the groups had approached the check in together and explained the situation. This is quite common at many WDW restaurants as they do not offer ADR’s in larger groups. I have specially read that Ohana has seated together in the past upon request.
Thank you so much for the info! We plan to visit Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex, and Bubba Gump in March. We want to dine at T-Rex on arrival day but was not seeing ideal dinner times 6 months out. I seriously won’t need an ADR if I sign up for Landry’s Select Club?!?!
yep, seated with Landry’s right away in Dec!
What else is nice is we won’t have to worry about arriving at the restaurant at a certain time on three days of our trip. Flexibility!
I joined the Landry’s club about a month before our trip, and showed up at Y&Y with a party of 8 on a Friday night with no ADR. I figured some small parties would get seated in front of us, but they didn’t! They gave us two neighboring tables for four. The Landry’s discount also turned out to be larger than other available discounts.
Is the Landry’s card only good for 1 year?
I don’t think so? It’s been a couple years or so since I used mine so things could have changed without me paying attention, but I’ve had it since…2002, I think?
There is a one-time, non-refundable $25 Membership Fee. There is no annual fee to continue your membership. You will also receive a $25 Welcome Reward for joining the Landry’s Select Club within 24 hours of registering your account online.
