If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort, there is likely a list of rides that are on the absolute “must-do” list.
No matter what Disney Park— whether that be Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom– you’re sure to find plenty of attractions and entertainment that will immerse you in the magic.
When visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, one of the most popular attractions for Disney Park Guests to hop in is Expedition Everest. Making a train ride through the Forbidden Mountain, you may even run into the Yeti.
Disney Parks recently shared a hilarious video filming a promotional video for Expedition Everest that was “too good not to share.”
This one was too good not to share 😄 #Disney #DisneyParks #DisneyWorld #AnimalKingdom #ExpeditionEverest #RollerCoaster #BTS #Scream
The Disney Cast Member filming the ride said they were supposed to remain quiet while on the attraction, but they simply couldn’t hold in a scream when the coaster went in reverse at the part where the tracks had been destroyed.
Disney’s official description of Expedition Everest reads:
Yeti or Not, Here He Comes!
Wander into a Tibetan village at the base of Mount Everest and board a train to the “top of the world.” Beware: Some say a legendary snow monster lives deep in the mountain.
After a steep ascent, your train picks up speed and races into the darkness. Without warning, a broken and twisted track appears in front of you. Brace yourself as you plummet backward into total darkness. Inside the cavern, the mythical tale comes true as you see the shadow of a massive, growling beast!
Race to escape the cursed mountain—before the Yeti claims another expedition.
While visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you’ll want to make sure to take a ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris and then take a trip over to Pandora to ride Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey. Enjoy A Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King and then head over to Asia to ride Expedition Everest. Get your splash on at Kali River Rapids and head over to the Tree of Life to say ‘hi’ to Flik at It’s Tough To Be A Bug! Don’t forget to check out Discovery Island, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, and the various animal treks through the Disney Park, as well!
