NEWS: Expedition Everest Reopening DATE Announced for Disney World

It feels like Expedition Everest has been closed for 84 years in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but in reality it’s been closed for over 3 months.

Expedition Everest closed on January 4th for a lengthy refurbishment, scheduled for reopening sometime in mid-April. We’ve been watching closely for a reopening date but just a few days ago Disney removed that mid-April date from their website and a Cast Member told us it could be closed for another two weeks. Today we have a BIG update!

Thanks to reader Joe (@schreiberjoe on Instagram), we learned that Expedition Everest is now scheduled to reopen in Animal Kingdom on April 16th, 2022! You can check out the ride’s availability on Disney World’s website, where it lists the ride as opening for Early Theme Park Entry at 7AM beginning on April 16th.

If you check the list of Genie+ rides at Animal Kingdom, Disney lists Expedition Everest as part of the Lightning Lanes included with a Genie+ purchase. Previously, Expedition Everest was available for purchase as an Individual Lightning Lane.
