Yak & Yeti

I'm sad to say I've never stepped foot into this restaurant and not for any other reason than that I do not spend much time at the Animal Kingdom.

Lotus Blossom Cafe

This quick service eatery in the China pavilion used to have a more traditional decor.  Today it's rather mod.

This picture from January 1990 gives a small glimpse into the former decor of the restaurant.

15 Years Commemorative Cup

I posted a picture of this cup two years ago but when I recently came across it in a box I realized I hadn't photographed all of the great graphics on it.  So here's the whole thing.

On the front of the cup is the 15 Years logo and a spacewalker and space station which I believe are from Horizons.

Here we see Spaceship Earth with Dreamfinder's ship floating above it from Journey Into Imagination.

To the right of Spaceship Earth is SMART-1 robot from Communicore.

Behind SMART-1 are dinosaurs from the Universe of Energy.

Here we have a diver and dolphins from the Living Seas.

And the Journey Into Imagination pavilion with a monorail passing by.

Singapore Sal's Saleable Salvage

Another new and old comparison today.  Not much has changed at Sal's over the years.  A few minor adjustments to the sign and props have taken place and the merchandise inside has gotten a lot more boring.

The first two pictures are newish, the last two are from 1990.

Notice there a fewer props on the roof and there is a shark bite out of the surfboard "Souvenirs" sign.
