EPCOT is undergoing a BIG transformation right now, several hotels are getting updates, and a few rides are scheduled to get refurbishments soon. And, one popular ride just joined the list of attractions that will be closing for refurbishments in Disney World.
Expedition Everest — Legend of the Forbidden Mountain is scheduled to close for updates on January 4th, 2022. And, this refurbishment is going to last a while, though — it’s not set to reopen until mid-April 2022.
Disney hasn’t announced yet what the changes or updates will be on the ride, only that it will be closed for more than three months.
If you’re not familiar, Expedition Everest is a fan-favorite ride in Disney’s Animal Kingdom where guests join a high-speed expedition to search for the Yeti on Mt. Everest. And, with a few close encounters with the creature, the roller coaster travels both forwards and backwards on your treacherous journey.
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for additional information on the refurbishment and when the iconic attraction may reopen, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
