    Is it possible to record on expedition everest without tools, just a phone and wanted to know if my phone will fall off or not

    Hi Brandon,

    I’m so glad you ascended the heights of the Himalayans, or at least the internet, and found us here at planDisney. It sounds like you have some adventure planned for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so yeti or not, let’s get started!

    Brandon, I’m a big fan of the legendary snow monster you will find inside Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, so I can relate to wanting to capture the fearsome creature on video. However, I have some words of warning for you before you venture too far off the path with your phone. There are some serious twists and turns and a lot of darkness on Expedition Everest. They don’t call it “the Forbidden Mountain” for nothing!

    I can’t guarantee that your phone won’t be tossed over the edge and into the Yeti’s clutches during your ride. Also, as you board the train, all the warning signs will tell you to secure all loose articles when you board, so I recommend that you heed these words of caution just in case. Once you’ve ridden it with everything safely stored, you can decide for yourself. 

    Brandon, Disney PhotoPass service offers a couple of not-so-risky options for capturing your experience on Expedition Everest, that even the Yeti can’t thwart. If you purchase Disney Genie+ service, select attraction photos and videos are available to download on the day of your visit, including Expedition Everest. Also, if you purchase Memory Maker, you can download your attraction photos and videos in addition to downloading all your photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers all across Walt Disney World Resort.

    Don’t forget to download the Play Disney Parks mobile app before your visit. Conquering the Forbidden Mountain of Expedition Everest will earn you a Digital Achievement and get you one step closer to unlocking the ability to purchase a special attraction trading pin

    I wish you well on your expedition, Brandon. If you have other questions, please speed back by and let us know; we are here to help explorers like you!

    Hold on tight to the magic,
