    Exclamation Latest Statements from Joe Rohde on the Infamous 'Disco Yeti'

    Imagineer Joe Rohde took to the twitterverse over the weekend to (officially) unofficially comment on the future of Expeditions Everet's infamous 'Disco Yeti' at Disney's Animal Kingdom:

    Funny, they had a plan years ago to fix the yeti... They didn't then, I don't see them doing so now...

    Maybe they will with the increase in attendance that they are expecting. Does it make a huge difference in the ride if it moves or not?

    It is Rumoured that the 'fix' will be part of other enhancements to the attraction potentially part of the Walt Disney World 50th attraction blitz.

    My personal opinion of 'A Mode' was that it is a significantly different on-ride experience with the swiping arm at the car versus the strobed 'B mode'. It hasn't stopped me from riding it, but it has been demoted from a 'few times a trip' to 'once a trip' experience for me.

    I feel the same way about A mode vs. B mode... Esp since Disney hyped up the yeti animatronic.. and now, it sits there, in it's John Travolta Bee Gees glory...

    It's actually a disco ball... And they are putting a white suit and black button down dress shirt on the yeti... I believe STAYING ALIVE will be playing in the background too...

    Speaking of shirts, has anyone sent an Intercot "Yeti is Down" T-shirt to Mr. Rohde? You know, as a not-to-subtle hint/request from all of us here?

    Lol Staying Alive would be appropriate if you were being chased by a Yeti.

    Hmmm, how would one go about doing that? I'll volunteer. Is he in Florida? I can personally deliver it if it isn't fixed by October.

    Why would they fix it? Everything, including how they alienate guests, goes through a cost/benefit analysis. There is no benefit to the cost of fixing it. Rhode and others are probably bit perplexed that guests haven't forgotten the yeti is broken.
