    sellandship probably have him.

    You should still feel privileged. The non-yeti was once "the most advance audio animatronic figure" ever built. Your ride vehicle DID pass through the area it once occupied. FEEL PRIVILEGED or else!!!

    Re: No yeti at all?

    Is he physically gone or is he just covered/no lights on him?

    Re: No yeti at all?

    Can we hope they pulled Yeti to finally fix and/or replace him?

    Ya, call me a dreamer.

    Don't get too excited. Here's the yeti's replacement:

    Maybe they installed the Yeti over at Star Tours?

    We were at AK on Monday and the only Yeti we had was the cartoonized "shadow" Yeti. No "real" Yeti.

    Oh well. The ride is still awesome w/o him, LOL.

    Re: No yeti at all?

    I just went on the ride a couple weeks ago and without the Yeti the queue loses a lot of meaning. I feel they have to fix the Yeti otherwise invalidate much of the effort they put into the elaborate queue... it would be nice if they let somebody know their intentions since so many people would like too see it fixed, plus it would support Disney's reputation of proper maintenance.

    Re: No yeti at all?

    I was reading today a post by an Orlando Magazine that Everest is an odd experience now, being just very dark where Yeti once stood.

    Hopefully he will recover from his operation soon.

    Anyhoo...the one in the white, with the braided pumpernickel danishes on the side of her head, looks like she'd put a LOT less force on the structural/mechanical systems than that big...furry...whatever that is...?
    On second thought...never mind. Scratch that whole less "force" from her theory...
