Expedition Everest

Why It's Our Favorite Ride

Expedition Everest is my favorite ride in all of Disney! The high-speed roller coaster takes you on a thrilling journey through the Himalayas, with twists and turns that will leave you breathless. But the real highlight of the ride is the close encounter with the Yeti, which is both terrifying and exhilarating. My tip is to ride in the evening, when the wait times are shorter and the lighting adds an extra level of excitement to the experience. Don’t miss this must-ride attraction at Animal Kingdom!

What to Eat

After riding Expedition Everest, head over to Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe for some delicious Asian-inspired snacks and meals. Try the Korean BBQ ribs or the teriyaki chicken bowl for a filling and flavorful meal. For a lighter option, the edamame or egg rolls are a great choice. And don’t forget to grab a refreshing drink like the mango gingerita or the frozen lemonade to cool off after the thrilling ride. This restaurant is located in the same land as Expedition Everest, so it’s the perfect spot to refuel and continue your adventure in Animal Kingdom.
