No doubt there will be soft openings days and weeks before the big grand opening event though....

It is a park within a park actually.

So what is the best guess? WWHP fully open and operational by June 1?

I would rather go in early June than mid August, but it really is dependant on WWHP. I need planning time, so that means I need to start now for June!

That would be a very safe guess.

Another safe guess would be to rule out March. I cannot post the reasons why online. Let's just say *I* won't even be able to ride it by then.

Historically...the first part of December is slow but with the crowds WWoHP will be bringing...who knows?

Hey Darth,

Can you say how you are in a position to know, without giving too much away. I am going to Clearwater Beach in March, and I am trying to decide on a side trip to Orlando.

Thanks!
