Word went out last night about a possible soft opening of Star Tours: The Adventure Continues at Disneyland Park today. This speculation had people lined up at the front gates of Disneyland in the wee hours of the morning. As of 8 AM the queue is currently filling up large portions of the Disneyland Resort esplanade (the large open area between Disneyland and California Adventure).
Guests and cast members there today are astonished and can only guess at the actual length of the queue.
Please keep in mind, there is no official announcements of soft openings. Thus, it may begin or end at any time and for that matter, never actually open at all. To be on the safe side, wait until the official opening if you are there specifically to ride any new attraction at any theme park.
Note from Robert: There is an invite-only soft opening at Disneyland today, but you have to have the invite to get on. An annual passholder preview runs over the next few days, as well, but that's also advance-invitation-only. (I'm going on Monday morning.)
Update: After the invite-only event in the AM, Disneyland opened Star Tours for a public soft open in the afternoon.Tweet
