That's all anyone has heard. Disney has not updated its opening date estimate and will only say opening 2014. No hint of early or late. Anything else people say is just conjecture.

Last I heard was on the 28th the first car arrived for it: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...ks-attraction/

While the official opening is set for 2014 some are 'guessing' it may have a 'soft' opening in November or December like Fantasyland did. But nothing official on that. Just Disney blogger conjecture.

We are going the first week of March and touring plans let's me add it to my plan for that day so I'm trying to take that as a good sign. (I haven't bothered to see if it would let me for a plan of say. .. tomorrow because I'm trying to think positively)

Josh, the blogger who runs the EasyWDW.com web site, has guessed that it will begin "soft" opening in November 2013. It may be just speculation, but he visits Disney seemingly every week and has a great web site with lots of info (and fantastic photos), so his guess is better than mine.

We were there last October and the frame work for the station and some track were in. We were there in March and the track was in or at least what I could see, as well as starting the actual art work on the station. So it's coming along nicely. I would imagine it will be available for the summer 14 crowds. We will be there again in October. It will be nice to see how far they got in the last few months. But as we all know. Disney technology is complicated. I'm certain it will take many test trials to work out the kinks before they even do a soft opening. I am very excited though!!!

I've got my fingers crossed hoping for a soft opening in December for my trip right before X-mas.

Just curious, how does a soft opening work? Is it open if you see a cast member at the ride entrance or do you inquire at guest services? How does one find out if they are testing the ride?

You will just notice it running and go over to the ride and inquire.
