From the smallest Hidden Mickey to the fluid transition from one Disney Park land to the next, Disney is constantly thinking about the details. The intricate work within each Park shines through in many ways, but for this secret, we are dropping by the Asia portion of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain looms over this area of the Disney Park. Screams are heard in the distance as Guests hold on in fear of the legendary Yeti’s wrath. The thrilling attraction is nestled beautifully across from Discovery River. But as you approach, have you ever stopped to check out the Yeti Shrine at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?
