Expedition Everest is a popular attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. Famously known for the yeti, Guests continue to ride Everest time and time again for the thrilling experience.

However, I bet you didn’t know about another animatronic that is secretly hidden and that only select Guests will see!

Every single Guest that rides Expedition Everest is guaranteed to see the infamous yeti animatronic as they zoom past him through the mountain. But, if you are lucky enough, you may also catch another secret animatronic — a bird!

If you are riding Expedition Everest and you are one of the lucky Guests, when you are stopped at the broken tracks, look to the left and you may spot a bird animatronic on a stick. According to one TikTok user, this bird was actually meant to fly over Guests’ heads while stuck at the broken tracks; however, that idea clearly never played out and instead, the bird will randomly appear on select rides — meaning only a few lucky Guests will be able to spot him!

TikTok user Colleen (@colleenlepp) shared a video to the social media platform showing the bird so you can see what you should look for on your next expedition to Mount Everest! You can check it out below or by clicking here.
