DVC Fantasy Land Preview?

I just read about the AP preview on 11/3, 10 and 11. I will be there for the 10th &11th. I am hoping that we will have a DVC preview as well. Any info? I was not planning on getting an AP this trip as we are not planning to return until 1/2014. TIA

Passholder and D23 previews were announced on Monday. Still no news of a DVC preview. It's looking doubtful.

It is looking doubtful. I purchased the discounted Premium Annual Pass through DVC on Monday, in hopes that I would be able to access the Passholder webpage in order to register for the preview. But my hopes were shattered again, as DVC is only giving out Will Call #'s instead of sending out vouchers for the passes. Therefore, there is no way that I can register on the passholder website, without a voucher or an active pass.

My only hopes now is that DVC comes through for us. We are in the World from Nov 9th - Nov 17th.. We leave just 2 days before the soft opening begins.. Just my luck..

How can you invest so much money on a vacation and be so clueless?
If we keep going to Disney we will be like Peter Pan and never grow up!

I sent them a email and they answered me that there was going to be a dvc preview so don't give up yet. I know I'm not. we go 11/09 - 11/13 and I am still hopeful.

What do you need to do to be asked to do a DVC preview of Fantasyland? I'll be at WDW from 11/4 - 11/9.

Everything is scheduled to be open except the Snow White mine coaster. That will not debut until early 2014.

Typical. We just bought our discounted APs on Monday for our 11/12 through 11/17 trip.

Talk about bad timing...a day late for the preview and leave two days early for the soft opening.

At least we have APs and DVC...always another chance to see it all later.

I don't think 11/19 is really considered a "soft opening." Soft openings are usually unannounced and subject to tweaks and revisions. 11/19 is the announced day on which full-scale operations are scheduled to begin. (Even though the official grand opening ceremony is still a few weeks after that.)

In other words, I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of a soft opening sometime before 11/19. Be Our Guest may not be open prior to 11/19 but it's possible the attractions will be operational.

I think once the previews for Cast members and APs are done, we should see a lot of soft openings. I have been there for soft openings for test track, mission space and each time it was just very random, unannounced and we were lucky to just happen to be walking by for them. We will be there 117-11/13 and hope to catch at least a soft opening. A DVC preview would be awesome, but hopefully there will be a preview for members. We don't get APs so we are out of luck there.

I got the canned email stating that DVC is working on getting us a special preview but nothing as to date. Keeping my fingers crossed as we will be there 11/8-11/17.

And my last day there is November 1, so I'm hoping for a super-soft preview.
