We'll be there on Sunday the 18th. Timing sounds perfect, but I'm not holding my breath.

~Wow. Thanks for sharing the pics. Test Track looks state-of-the-art & modern! I can't wait to see how they reworked the queue.

As we were leaving after Illuminations Monday night (11-12) they were testing/running cars. One right after another.

That is a very good sign. I work in construction management and a few of my consultants are national and do work with Disney.

They really go into high gear when they are close to opening, if the okay has been given by the county to open. No exact date, but it is a good sign.

Oh my fingers are crossed!!! DS was so disappointed when we were there in Sept and Oct and I hadn't head the heart to tell him it still wouldn't be open when we go Dec 1-3, sounds like there may be hope yet!!!
