It seems that the Expedition Everest refurbishment schedule might be extended a bit longer until the end of April this year.
Originally it was set to be refurbished into Mid-April, 2022, and that still may be the case, but if you check availability it’s showing that it is unavailable through April on the app. The calendar on the website only shows availability through April 22, 2022.
This could be just them giving themselves some leeway in case it takes longer than anticipated. Disney was already very general with the refurbishment time frame, stating “mid-April.” But even the 22nd is showing it as no availability and that’s past what would be considered “mid-April.”
Either way, just keep this in mind if Expedition Everest is a “must-do” on your mid-late April trip. Watch for a more concrete date the closer we get to mid-April.
Here’s the write-up for Expedition Everest for those that don’t know:
“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.”
Oh and don’t expect the yeti to be fixed because that would require a lot more time, effort, and tearing the ride apart to do so.
It would be amazing to see the yeti work again though. For those that don’t know they yeti used to swing his arm and move, but due to “issues” that feature has been turned off for years.
