I believe that you are mistaken.

The Yeti will be fixed when the accountants decide it is worth the money to fix it, plain and simple.

It is completely a monetary thing. If it worked at the beginning it can work now but they don't want to spend the money to fix it. There is no other reason.

I was lucky enough to have gone about a month after it opened, so I actually did get to see the Yeti! It's not just a myth...it really does exist!! And it scared the crud out of me! I do miss it... it really did add alot to that ride.

I love EE, but I honestly don't care whether or not the Yeti is working. You see it for a few seconds and then you're gone. I've ridden EE both pre and post a working Yeti. I couldn't tell the difference . The dates of when it went down,and people here on the Dis, are the only way I have of knowing that it was working the first time I rode it. I know it matters to a lot of people, and I wouldn't really be upset if they decided to close EE to try and fix the Yeti, but I personally would rather Disney spend the money else where. HS could use a healthy dose of TLC.

I've also ridden pre and post and the only time it bugs me that the Yeti is crippled is when I watch one of those Disney documentaries on the Travel Channel or wherever in which they tout this feature and show it working. I know it's not Disney itself promoting a false feature, but it's still irritating.

Are you SURE it was working the first time you saw it?

It's been my experience that people who recently "saw a working Yeti" realize they were mistaken when they watch footage of the Yeti actually in "A mode".

When people say "I think it was working", my response is "if it was working, there would be no doubt in your mind".

Agree. Very few people that saw B Mode Yeti realize that was not what it was supposed to be. Alot of times someone will say I saw it work in X Month and Year. Umm no you didn't. You thought you saw it. If you did see true full working A mode you know the difference. Even after all these years I can still remember how much better it was and when I ride EE now it makes me sad when I realize most of those on my train never saw what it was intended to be.
