Sign Up for a Chance to Tour the Expedition Everest Attraction with a Walt Disney Imagineer

posted on October 4th, 2013 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

Next week, we’re continuing our series of special “Limited Time Magic” experiences in the parks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park with daily tours of the Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain Attraction through the eyes of Walt Disney Imagineering.

Expedition Everest Attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

Each morning, from October 7-11, 2013, a group of lucky guests will venture inside the Tibetan-style stone structure at the foot of the towering Mt. Everest replica, explore a museum dedicated to the study of the Yeti (the mysterious snow monster said to inhabit the Himalayas) and visit other areas of the attraction. And during each walking tour, participants will hear inside stories from the Walt Disney Imagineers who brought the Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain Attraction to life.

There will be only one tour per day – beginning at 8 a.m. – with 10 guests in each group. You may enter here for a chance to attend only one of the five tours being offered from October 7-11, 2013. Also, here are the rules for the drawing for the Expedition Everest Attraction Tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

Aww man. Too bad I’ll be there the week after next. :(


Graeme on October 4th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

US residents only? :(

I’m here that week from the UK and would have loved the chance.


Ethan on October 4th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

I hope I win! Sounds like a really cool experience.


Jeremy on October 4th, 2013 at 1:12 pm

Man I wish I was there and I would definitely enter!


Tiffany on October 4th, 2013 at 1:34 pm

I hope we get selected! My husband and I both signed up. :)


Gregory on October 4th, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Same here – this time, I saw the post when signups are still open, but I to to Disneyland!


Norman on October 4th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

My fiancee and I signed up. Wish the winner could bring one guest, disappointed we can’t bring our significant other.


Denise on October 4th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

I was chosen! But my email doesn’t have a date when I should arrive. Also, the information says that I check in at Animal Kingdom Lodge, but it seems like it means Animal Kingdom…I am confused.



Thomas Smith on October 7th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Hi Denise, did you find your day? Also, everyone is meeting at Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.


james on October 4th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

I was chosen, I’m kind of dismayed that we can’t bring a guest nor transfer it as my sister was the one who initially wished to attend. Hopefully the event will be awesome though.


David on October 4th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

I won! So excited! I am one of those people who never wins anything. I am also a bit confused by the email. Is it at Animal Kingdom Park or Animal Kingdom Lodge, it kind of says both?


Ethan on October 4th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

I won and I’m also confused… do we meet at the park or at the Lodge?


Thomas Smith on October 7th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Hi Ethan, Check-In is at the Lodge – Jambo House. You’ll see a “Limited Time Magic” table for registration. Thanks.


Sandra on October 4th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

Congrats to those of you selected! I didn’t get in to this meet up – hope to get selected to one in the future!


Johanna from CA on October 4th, 2013 at 10:51 pm

darn it! couldn’t wait a little while longer. I’ll be at the AK on the 21st. Boo


Monica from NY on October 4th, 2013 at 11:18 pm

How do we enter for this.


Brian on October 5th, 2013 at 7:23 am

Mine says check in at the lodge but then to go through designated turnstiles at the park…Which one?


Thomas Smith on October 7th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Lodge is correct.


Friend on October 5th, 2013 at 11:49 pm

Will we get to see the Mountains creature in up and close action?


Paul from IN on October 6th, 2013 at 10:50 pm

Wow I just got the email today it was dated the 5th and I hadn’t checked the blog and I was too late. The end date was the 4th kinda bummed out.


Denise on October 7th, 2013 at 7:47 am

I confirmed with Disney yesterday that it is the Animal Kingdom where we meet.


Suzanne on October 7th, 2013 at 9:56 am

How long does the tour last?


Thomas Smith on October 7th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Hi Suzanne, one-hour tour, maybe a little longer.


Ethan on October 11th, 2013 at 10:53 am
