    1) not sure DAK is “more popular than ever” but that’s a discussion for another time

    2) the amount of money and time required to fix it probably is a major factor. Additionally there is a lot of politics between ops, maintenance, engineering, and WDI when it comes to the Yeti. Each one is blaming the other.

    I think it's pretty clear it's drawn people from the smoking craters of DHS and EPCOT. I've never seen it like I did the other week.

    I think it’s too early to tell how much longevity Avatar has. It’s busy now but next year, I think it will fade. Disney will be praying that the sequels are a hit. If Disney don’t fix the yeti before the sequels land, I don’t think we’ll ever see it happen.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I could see the Yeti being fixed for the 50th in a few years. It’s not extremely likely, but it is a possibility. DLR updated a bunch of their rides for the Diamond Celebration.

    Finally. Watch them advertise it as a new attraction, once they fix the yeti.

    Aww, hell no. I’m assuming by imminent they mean a good few months away though?

    I could see them adding projections or something to the dark portions.

    And I think Disney will make a giant marketing effort to label it as a new ride.

    I get the hope, that they'd treat it more to how they treated the renovations of Matterhorn. It wouldn't be marketed as a new attraction, but they would promote the new changes and additions, along with a "new face, to what lurks within the mountain", being the Yeti in a new form.

    :oO: So... will we get a yeti with a projection mapped face?
    Or will they use the new tech from NRJ to give him a better shot at success?

    Anything to pull crowds away from DHS. This would be a smart move; although I could see the argument for unnecessary.

    But I'll be thrilled if they do.

    Zero confidence in anything changing soon.

    Crafting articles and headlines from single tweets has to be one of my biggest internet pet peeves.

    Nothing to see here. I don't doubt Rohde's passion. But it's not about what he wants. It's about what WDW will let him do.

    I don’t think AK can handle the closure of it until the Avatar hype dies down or they add something else.

    Yeah I'm sure park ops and execs are just nodding at Joe Rhode as he's explaining how he wants to fix the Yeti

    Also, hot take, but I really think AK had a lot more issues than a broken AA
