I was backstage this evening for cast choir rehearsal for the Candlelight Procession. The lights were on and cars were running. No people in them, but cars were definitely going through the course.

OT, but is that the Dr Who phone Booth at the bottom of your page? DH got a hard cover for his iPhone 5 off the Internet with the phone booth on it to tide him over until he can pick a Disney one out when we go in Jan.

OT: Stindall, I see you have the Davit Tenant Smilie as well . Btw, thanks for the links on where to get those!

Ok, back on topic. We will be in Epcot exactly 2 weeks from today for our first day in the parks and have a second day planned for 12/5. Has anyone heard anything yet regarding a soft opening?

We just left the park. This morning we saw a small crane behind the wall at the front of the attraction entrance. This afternoon cars were going around the track about 10 seconds apart and the crane was gone. The lights were on inside too. I will not be surprised if it soft opens sometime this week. We definitely are planning to check it out several times and keeping our fingers crossed that we get lucky!

We just spoke to a manager at the ride who was chatting with a group of CMs and he said the wall is due to come down Wednesday. Gossip, of course, but he seemed confident. We, too, could hear the cars running and a CM at the IG gate encouraged us to walk by often, so we shall see! The blue color is much more pleasant than the previous orange, IMO.
