Nope. All Kinds of rumors but best guess is still late May/early June. As soon as anything official is announced it'll pop up on the front page of Intercot.

I heard the opening date is May 2 or 3. The Orlando newspaper confirmed they have been invited to pre-view it at the end of April. Now it could be a soft opening for Annual Passholders but I would count on it being open to all by mid April at the latest. As soon as the opening date is announced you can reserve it with FP+ according to the Disney Blog.

I hope it opens before the end of August because that's when we'll be there!!!!

When I was on the phone with Disney, the woman told me end of April.

It is now almost mid-April and cast training is not yet underway, so don't count on opening mid April.

The press event is the 30th to the 1st, so it will certainly be open by then. They never let the press in to see an attraction if they aren't certain it will be fully up and running.

As a side note, INTERCOT will be there covering. :D

We're very excited and looking forward to this ride when we get back to WDW this fall. Hope it turns out as well as it looks in the previews, etc.

Was told last night by one of my fellow CM's that is moving to Mine Train later this month in a management role that it will open for the media "preview" but "probably" won't open to the day guests for a couple of weeks after that. Actual guest use opening is not confirmed at this time.

Thanks 11290. Did they know when it will be available to start booking advance FP times? The Disney Blog stated as soon as the official opening date was announced that you could start making advance FP reservations.

My parents were at MK on Friday and told me they were still working on the ride. My guess: Prob the press event dates of 4/30-5/2 will be the target opening. :mickey:
Can't wait to ride it in December!!!

Sorry, that is a whole different business unit (park support) from operations and we don't get to hear much about that aspect until it actually happens usually, it if I find out anything I'll post.
