Nice try, but it was GOTG :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

FWIW: This attraction will close for inclement weather.

Oooh! I watched the video walkthrough and I LOVE it! I can’t wait to see it in person!

Disney doesn’t want the real journey of water (or the journey of lightening) interfering with the attraction.

This makes sense because there isn’t anywhere for the CM’s to stand safely.

We did the AP preview yesterday…smartly waited for all the “I want to be first” people to do it as we had zero wait and walked right in. It’s a nice little walk through.

BlogMickey is reporting there might be some reconstruction work to improve drainage by the waterfall curtain, and there’s a need to address some effects that are only partially working.

This is so crazy to me. This project seems like it took forever. One would think all the testing would have been done before the preview.

It’s hard to test how things will work with a large influx of people without actually letting in a large influx of people :wink: This (and to train CM’s) is the real reason there are previews.

I don’t see how the large influx of people would be needed to see that certain features aren’t working properly. The drainage issue is also baffling. It seems like this should have been anticipated.
Not a huge deal I guess. But I’m just surprised to see the previews extended to non-CM’s before addressing the effects that aren’t working. And putting a sign asking kids not to run is like giving away a prize to the kids who runs the fastest :joy:

I definitely posted this somewhere, but it is now open for soft openings from now to official opening day.

I’m so not the ball today (granted it’s the last day of a 15 day trip) and forgot to join the queue when we entered the park :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: My mom will have to wait until March. (We went during AP preview last week)

The virtual queue is still open.

Ya, did join. But got 91. We have to head to airport soon (flight at 4:15 pm)

Currently trapped on Test Track waiting to be evacuated :crazy_face: We will have to head out once we get off this ride. Hopefully that’s not much longer.

This WILL apparently be open tomorrow, 10/11, after all, but only noon to 5pm.

I went on Sunday and absolutely loved it. It was everything that captured my imagination about Epcot as a child but updated. Loved it.

There were long VQs all day, but around 7:30 or 7:45 I noticed it was open for stand by. There was no line at all, except occasionally waiting for an interactive station.

It was just perfect to me.
