    Hello! We are wondering about the Exhibition Everest ride. Is the Yeti just a shadow or is it the robot. I read somewhere that the robotic Yeti was too scary and they changed it so it is just the shadow of the Yeti that you see. Which is correct?


    The answer lies in both areas. 

    There is an animated "shadow" of the Yeti that is part of the ride. But there is also a large, animatronic Yeti. He doesn't move any more, not because he was too scary, but supposedly because of structural concerns.

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a magical vacation!
