Ok I decided to hit AK for a couple of hours today to see how the animals were doing. I also wanted to take in a Tarzan show so enjoy!!

DSC06177.JPG.bf35347208931433f9b23de48f602577.JPG

Wow, cool its a roller coaster. I finally get to see what one of those trains looks like.

DSC06175.JPG.b98e93f476eaa4c09afb58fc0d2d5c64.JPG

This looks interesting, I wonder why this section is closed off?

DSC06174.JPG.71baa4c298cd53a89b5171d578c9913b.JPG

Oh crap!!!! What happened to Tarzan? Oh no!

DSC06173.JPG.de55841c4cfa738e088e314cd3e5b973.JPG

Its so good to get back to AK. I bet the animals will be happy to see me.

ok lots more EE

DSC06207.JPG.bfb2d157fd7f3e8a16618aefdee9b563.JPG

It certainly does not look like a standard roller coaster queue, does it?

DSC06206.JPG.44466f189f8c5df83d9661f5a2de4819.JPG

Its the start of the museum section of the queue.

DSC06204.JPG.dec026bae90a877dbfa5dcbeb0e22a47.JPG

What is inside here?

DSC06202.JPG.d2e64a4eec281ae0012336d5be232ee5.JPG

No wonder why the Yeti is so upset. They locked up his younger brother in this cage.

DSC06200.JPG.3d9f376c7c0b4d3755a104ca10b70ca8.JPG

You can look right back out to the main sidewalk from the queue.

DSC06199.JPG.bd4e9f2ee6c9aca78999257a8bfdfbc6.JPG

The line was moving quite fast.

DSC06198.JPG.acd2aff6c99a125e000fef42ce7cdb41.JPG

The entrance area opens up into a temple/courtyard.

DSC06193.JPG.b1ac4e96a0ddbad48cf2cd63d0e47675.JPG

As you enter the building you encounter Wes's work station.

DSC06192.JPG.1d3475d7d7cf4924761b44f9573eb0a5.JPG

The sign was a big lie...the wait was actually around 15 minutes for my first EE ride.

DSC06196.JPG.80175085e2e52c5dcc9788b4d2791cb3.JPG

Hey, I wonder how much one of these babies will go on Ebay?...oops I collect the m too.

DSC06190.JPG.dcadb5ba7647b02e2b8a5d180489a10e.JPG

They had a bunch of CMs passing out the free items.

DSC06189.thumb.JPG.03d038949a7671939914c3c300fe1343.JPG

Cool...I get something for free.

DSC06186.JPG.71aa728bc0ee33b1d7727c177c48eb2c.JPG

They had a couple of fast pass machines giving out a special fast pass.

DSC06261.JPG.82f1991b31198e4125d6620067c4b547.JPG

As well as the drop out of the mountain.

DSC06262.JPG.aca53754c571b8bf653853805da10158.JPG

Before I show you guys the queue, I wanted to show you the most awesome lift hill in Florida.

DSC06184.JPG.42e57adb0b53701470dea01ea416607b.JPG

Santa wanted to ride EE as well.

DSC06182.JPG.c480113cd658504245c4f2721bbbe17a.JPG

...to get one of these.

DSC06180.JPG.ff153ce7502096cf876a16d4803271e2.JPG

Before getting in line, I did stop by one of these boxes...

DSC06179.JPG.c54fca427831583cc5452f309a7a74e4.JPG

Well this was expected.

DSC06178.JPG.6ce2c7d1db4380207ac5204524d86898.JPG

Wow..look at all the people! At least Disney planned very well for today's event.

LOL! WOW! Disney has poo in a queue.

DSC06220.JPG.c75dc70741602a5f6557d837fe4503ab.JPG

Maybe Wes knows who these people are.

DSC06219.JPG.88b5d5703786b1cef060e5f078a07ddf.JPG

Where can I buy this book?

DSC06214.JPG.932d0af55143f173df0f6d6527e87f8b.JPG

Cool...The Yeti library.

DSC06213.JPG.966d0684609ef7c7eecb47c9df23574e.JPG

How many Yetis are there in this family?

DSC06212.JPG.09576e38fc19ed50ced80f94d6a3e6aa.JPG

The museum was pretty impressive.

DSC06210.JPG.a4b76af12b49a39bbe1419b760b6fd41.JPG

Heading back into the station.

DSC06295.JPG.95226be95ddc4ce96e9ddfc5ee869d48.JPG

That was fun!

DSC06310.JPG.36fa9b025fc33655f5d9262cfcd5f230.JPG

Some fun extra coaster bits.

DSC06294.JPG.6cb99a6305a900f91ae050e3b1940c97.JPG

Getting thrown out of the mountain.

DSC06308.JPG.fb2f9c8d114a893a2102a3cb22a54d89.JPG

The start of the backwards section...more intense than expected.

DSC06307.JPG.14edb69abe1f74b58581f72168dd8d90.JPG

OK....you about ready for some G-forces?

DSC06291.JPG.fcde2c3772be938e6bc3eeb7ab8cfe75.JPG

How many WDW landmarks can you see from EE?

DSC06290.JPG.8e5a8d7f5150264fce2f1ce628c51af3.JPG

You really do move up the lift fast.

DSC06289.JPG.51305e7ea904402dd83766b6cf21c2a4.JPG

Nice its the helix in the back of the mountain.

DSC06304.JPG.8e61617ae3418dd6597e99f62d812a85.JPG

Here is the 2nd lift hill.

DSC06244.JPG.a37e2442ea22a2f459a3fb280fef0a8a.JPG

Goodbye loading station.

DSC06285.JPG.28605df2a1be12db74e63dadf1a3942c.JPG

This area turned out to be nicer than I though it would be.

DSC06242.JPG.94bd389bce0f4d3a7ca6d8fcbce16568.JPG

Here we go!

DSC06283.JPG.942e65a20fbb7c97b20abaa16ab2ca5b.JPG

Wave goodbye to the ride-op.

DSC06280.JPG.eac93c59cacc097de6739a4ae6171fef.JPG

DSC06235.JPG.7b65616589a553bcd83addcf819ef32b.JPG

Lap bars down.

DSC06281.JPG.62d6c59f42eeb883161bc149775251e4.JPG

These people sure are.

DSC06233.JPG.f090a7f6f9d5aa525d23bc42c595fc39.JPG

Are you ready to take a ride?

DSC06279.JPG.fd97dcbe489a564fbbb327cef2dd815b.JPG

This is what the front seat looks like.

DSC06300.JPG.8cc85ed6937de8765b5b968aa78bf074.JPG

Before it starts and goes, a bunch of steam comes out of the donkey engine.

DSC06237.JPG.ba9a7c85a8f4ac0cd27426db150a01e8.JPG

I think that EEs coaster trains are my new favorite.

DSC06231.JPG.48cd2409cbfc322a7613420bd881507b.JPG

Yes, show me to my donkey steam engine car.

DSC06225.JPG.d259facd723346d4cda0bf6c66adcfac.JPG

Actaully the ride did have a few intense moments that was unexpected.

DSC06223.JPG.1a99bf29185b1bd9a05dc7a659e97e53.JPG

Here we go! Red Hat Minnie Mouse ears!

Gift shop!

DSC06312.JPG.e7d8cefafe15680387fb0cc89917277a.JPG

A LOT less theming in the fastpass/single riders line.

DSC06302.JPG.4b1378f9d825e7b5ca8dbd901f6065c8.JPG

More rides for me....8 times in 2 1/2 hours. Not bad for opening day.

DSC06277.JPG.9af1da7a2724d3b0ce50ed7b23144407.JPG

Oh yes..they had a single rider line going.

DSC06274.JPG.022f276d9afd3fca0d6937aeb907d76c.JPG

I ended up riding EE 7 more times...do you wonder why?

DSC06258.JPG.ffac94e373078dcc73868dfc1153f3c5.JPG

Or ones that steal your candy?

DSC06257.JPG.92a969ce96846168b596b145cbaa17ec.JPG

Or funny looking Yetis?

DSC06255.JPG.36c029d038458b4577b1142a37305716.JPG

Where else can you buy cute Yetis?

DSC06259.JPG.d7c2436b3708283018f9de470aadc833.JPG

Come on! Gift shops after an E-ticket ride is tradition at WDW.

DSC06256.JPG.4f7fa31a0dd598bef665edb3ee70d28b.JPG

Mr. Yeti hopes you come by and visit him.

DSC06272.JPG.325396892ad49c43a5dec5b264d8411c.JPG

Yes folks, I think the ride is a real winner.

Thanks for the photos, Erik. Glad you got to ride it and share some stuff with us. Its also a relief that even on "opening" day, the line wasn't that bad for you, gives me hope when I finally get there in 3 months. Hopefully they'll keep the Single Rider Line as a constant thing too!

Here is a couple of screenshots from the upcoming POV

I liked EE, can you tell?

Everest_0005.jpg.4584d0292f27c6b63507ac5ca234f3ce.jpg

Coolest coaster car ever.

Everest_0006.jpg.371b45eecaaf0f022a9521b2e085f964.jpg

More forces on the old body.

Right after the big drop you go around this.

The Yeti makes steps into the arena.

Going backwards.....ahhhhh!

Everest_0002.jpg.e33d616c57827c6e320c30f033212ca5.jpg

So Erik, I could take a guess based on your captions, but whats your overall opinion of the ride?

 

I liked it a lot, but again my expectations were probably lowered after seeing those other videos first...and knowing too much about the ride before my actual ride.

Wow! Those were great! Seriously Erik, those were probably some of the better EE photos I've seen so far.

 

Really got a good sense of what the ride AND the coaster was like.

 

I hope your POV matches up to the great photos!

Honestly I'm glad I saw those videos before I rode. I would have gone in with overly inflated expectations if the video didn't lower my expectations. Even then, I still was a bit disappointed, I feel that it could have been better than it was.

Before I rode, the only thing I knew that it went backwards and forwards. I avoided information knowing that I was going to experience it.

 

I absolutely loved the ride. I agree that its amazing. I heart Everest. I can't wait to ride it more. Too bad Cast Preview isn't forever.

I was going to save up for a cruise, but I think I'll save up for a trip to Animal Kingdom!

 

This was perhaps one of the best photo TRs I've seen on here (no offense to anyone else). I still have to check out your POV of this.

 

EDIT: Where can I get the POV?
