Expedition Everest to Reopen on Schedule After Lengthy Refurbishment

Expedition Everest is expected to officially reopen on April 16, 2022, after a lengthy refurbishment. This Disney’s Animal Kingdom attraction closed on January 4, 2022. This comes after cast member previews in the morning and a soft opening of the attraction in the afternoon of April 15.

With the return of Expedition Everest, it will be added to Genie+. It is currently scheduled to be this way through August 7, 2022. It will not be a part of the individual Lighting Lane offerings during this time.

The refurbishment of Expedition Everest led to many fans hoping for the infamous Yeti to get worked on. However, this did not happen. The attraction instead received regular maintenance and updates. Below is a video of Expedition Everest from September 2020:

Expedition Everest Official Description

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.
