More Construction Planned For Expedition Everest

    Disney has recently filed a permit for more construction on Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    The popular roller coaster was closed in January of 2022 to undergo renovations and refurbishments and reopened in April of 2022.

    Expedition Everest is located in the Asia section of Animal Kingdom and is the tallest of the artificial mountains at Walt Disney World Resort.

    The ride experience begins peacefully enough, but that changes once the expedition train comes across torn up tracks that the Yeti destroyed. The train suddenly rockets backwards and into the mountain where guests get see the silhouette of the Yeti wreaking havoc. From here, the train goes forward and now in and out of the mountain before narrowly avoiding a close call with the legendary Yeti himself. Expedition Everest reaches top speeds of 50 mph.
