Disney's announced an official Dec. 6 opening date of the new land, with an official soft open (isn't that an oxymoron?) on Nov. 19. Annual passholders can sign up starting at noon Eastern on Monday, Oct. 15, to get in even earlier - for special AP-only previews on Sat. Nov. 3 and 10, and Sun., Nov. 11.
Welcome to world of theme parks, where the word "open" is as hard to pin down as the Cheshire Cat.
Anyway, we'd love to hear your reviews and see your photos should you be among the lucky ones to get in to any of these new locations early. Follow these links:
- Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
- Enchanted Tales with Belle
- Be Our Guest Restaurant
- Gaston's Tavern
I'm going to go ahead and list these locations as open so that people who've been there can submit ratings and reviews. But if you haven't yet visited, please, do not submit a review. On attraction and restaurant pages, we want to hear from people who've experienced them first-hand. Everyone else is welcomed to talk about these new locations here, or on the discussion board.
In other news, Dec. 6 is also the official reopening day for the revamped Test Track at Epcot, though I'm hearing soft opens before that date are likely, too.
Update (Oct. 15): Here's a new video from Disney showing off Be Our Guest:
