Good. The Empress Lilly discussion is more interesting than whether or not the steam is working.
I'm with you there.
Walking around Disney, it's often hot, often humid, and you may get rained on.
What .im coming up in November especially to see that thing lol,but seriously get it working Disney .
Check the date.
Why? What's the point? Is the yeti moving?
IKR... it's stickied.
Unfortunately not fake update:
1. Disco Yeti with strobe still in place.
2. Glorious bird on a stick still gone ; ).
Found the bird...over at Yak and Yeti...
The answer is it would require the ride to be down for a little while - note that I said little and not the massive "half the mountain would have to be dismantled" undertaking that the circulating rumors suggest. That, plus money, and the fact that they don't necessarily have to do this because it has consistently still been the most popular attraction in the park, are the reasons it hasn't been done yet.
I keep telling them I already confirmed my flight!
Just because a fix is easy does not mean it is cheep.
All I needed to do to make my last car perfect was replace the engine and transmission. Easy solution, but not so easy on the checking account.
The solution for the yeti is similar. Take out the Yeti and install a new one wit the design flaw fixed. An easy but expensive solution made only more complicated by 2 departments not agreeing on who gets the bill and the fact that 99% of Disney's client base has no idea that anything is wrong.
rode it a few times this week still disco but I still have fond memories of seeing it during the soft opening they did for media
There's a dispute over who foots the bill.
Here's an easy solution: They announce they're getting rid of the disco yeti. Then they sell t-shirts, travel mugs, and other assorted memorabilia featuring the broken guy. People will get on here and wax poetic about the first time they saw him and buy it all. Disney will raise millions and be able to fix him. In the meantime, message boards and podcasts will be alive with talk of weather the new Yeti will be as good as the old Yeti. I'm calling Iger in the morning.
Do you ever feel like no one listens?
And this is why you shouldnt focus your performance bonuses by doing The Iger(tm) (aka just watching how many cost cuts and money "savings" you did by slashing everything in your path)
So now we're blaming Iger for 2 divisions arguing over which one will pay for a fix?
Getting divisions to argue with each other was one of his major vanity projects.
Didnt get the memo? everyone blames Iger in the way we used to blame Meg
So as of now, May 2017, what in Everest actually works? I'm bringing a newbie and I wanna show them how impressive the ride is in October, but Disco Yeti may be a turn off lol.
