Thrills Await at Expedition Everest

This week’s “Good Morning” shot was snapped at Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


In this attraction, Himalayan Escapes – Tours and Expeditions whisks guests on a tour through the icy and towering Mount Everest. But beware the Yeti, the legendary protector of the mountain!

Is Everest a must-do for you?


  • Everest is my favorite Disney ride! It is exhilarating, the wait is never boring, and I love the track trickery. I can’t get enough!

  • Love to hate this ride and then love it again. We really enjoys our photos and would like to see a “plus-it” video like they have on the ‘Seven Dwarfs Mine Train” ride at MK.

  • I wish this would come to Disneyland!

  • I love this ride so much, I went on it during the Walt Disney World Marathon last Sunday, no joke!

  • EE is undoubtedly a must-do when we visit WDW. It’s one of my top three attractions in the entire resort (along with HTH and PhilharMagic). @4 Robert nails it when he describes how the queue helps tell the narrative. This is Disney storytelling at its immersive, creative, kick butt best.

  • Fix that Yeti!

  • Step 1. Fix the Yeti
    Step 2. Fix the light bleed on the backwards section that shows the I beams
    Step 3. Re-open as the best themed coaster in the world.

  • I absolutely loved this ride and would encourage anyone who likes roller-coasters to ride it. Not only is the ride great but the narrative portion that builds while you’re making your way through the line adds a level of authenticity you just won’t find anywhere else other than Disney.

  • It’s definitely in my top 5 favorite Disney rides! I’m looking forward to riding it at night too, when the park is open later!

  • Yes, please fix the Yeti!

  • Someone’s gotta say it, I might as well be first. I’ll enjoy ExE a lot more when the Yeti is working again. When Pandora is open, *please Disney*! It was fantastic in ’06 and ’07, and it’s a shame so few guests have been able to see such an incredible animatronic in all its glory.

    I would love to take a tour of the inside of the attraction – at least to see just what that backwards track is doing that makes us all feel so weird.
