In Spring 2006, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will unveil Expedition Everest: The Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. Guests will discover for themselves the fearsome legend of the Yeti on a thrilling train ride through Mount Everest with a 112 foot lift and 80-foot drop…the highest and longest at the Walt Disney World Resort.

I had the chance to attend the cast previews of this new attraction the other day and let me tell you, I now have a new favorite attraction here at the Walt Disney World Resort. You start your expedition off in a small native town at the base of Mount Everest. There is a legend that the mountain is protected by a mysterious beast known as the Yeti. As you await to start you expedition, you travel through the museum dedicated to the legend of the Yeti. Then, it is time for you to board your train to ascend the great mountain.

You begin your climb through the remain parts of the village up the mountain and are once again reminded about how much the legend of the Yeti is on the minds of this small village. Warning signs and murals all depict this beast. As you climb further ahead, look out to your left and you will see Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth and the Tower of Terror on the horizon until all of a sudden, you realize that the track ahead of you has been torn apart by something. Could it be the legendary Yeti? This is just the start of your adventure through the mountain. I wont spoil it for you guys but this is a new MUST DO attraction here at Walt Disney World. Come and check it out as soon as you can.
