Thats because they don't yet have a disco outfit for the yeti. Its all about attention to detail.
Off-topic poster is off-topic.
But to answer your question: It will take tons of money and downtime to fix. They don't have that money in the budget. Also, EE is one othe big draws of DAK. If they shut it down to fix it, attendance --already hurt by the sliding economy-- will drop even further. In a perfect world, the Yeti would be fixed, and fixed now. This is a less than perfect world. It will likely not be fixed for sometime.
Can we, as a people, please move on?
So much effort is put into these unique outfits for all these unique occasions. Not just in the parks, but for other occasions such as Disney Cruise Lines and Disney on Ice. I love being surprised when I see when Mickey and Minnie not wearing their traditional outfits. You rarely see them in the same unique outfit twice (most of time anyway).
Thanks, Robert, you have provided an excellent example to illustrate my point. This (in addition to cast member stories) is why I keep reading TPI!
You have a huge problem (broken yeti, nasty shark) that calls for something big to your area to be shut down(beautiful amity beach, Expedition Everest). But you can't shut it down because your economy (well attendance) depends on it.
Maybe we need to send Broady up there to fix the problem ;).
@38.104 - Sweet, short, and so right!
@207.114 - Agreed! I only saw it on A-mode, (luckily).
@Robert - The tank joke, good one. I'm still laughing!
But how about the poor Yeti, who cares about the poor thing, with his best days behind him, arthritic podium and all. Cause we all now he has to be scare sleepless, thinking; Oh lord! Don't let them put up a screen here and convert me to Yeti-3D! The poor thing alone in that mountain, with all those disco lights, and not a cocktail/beer, in sight to drown his sorrows!
I'm just saying...Francisco-
You're gonna need a bigger throat.
