There’s Some New Yeti Merch at Animal Kingdom and We Have Some Thoughts
2021 marks the 15 year anniversary of Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom and as with any Disney celebration, there’s a bunch of new merch to commemorate the occasion. A new Yeti Loungefly mini backpack and Spirit Jersey have been spotted, and well, we have some thoughts.
The Original Yeti
This adorable Yeti Loungefly mini backpack was first released about a year ago. He’s so cute and fluffy and not menacing at all, right!? Unfortunately, this little guy is now sold out on shopDisney and is quickly becoming a hot commodity in the Loungefly collecting world, ever since the release of the “new and improved” style.
The New Yeti
(Takes a deep breath in) ok, guys. Where do I even begin? If this backpack is supposed to celebrate 15 years of Expedition Everest, they should have at least made it better than the original. But this is just… scary. The poor thing looks like a knockoff of the original! And it’s not even nearly as fluffy!
It’s not even just a bad batch or anything, they completely reimagined the “Disco Yeti” as he is so affectionately known. What was wrong with his adorable toothy smile? Why, Disney, why!?
This new “improved” version of the Yeti has become quite the hot debate on social media. Some people think he’s absolutely adorable, while others think he looks “traumatized”. What do you think?
