I have a friend down there now, and no dice yet. The cars were running yesterday (again), but still not open. He sent me a video with the sound of the cars running.

EDIT: he also mentioned the TT area was teaming with CMs yesterday.

We really missed it on our trip in May and we're thinking about doing a quick trip sometime near the end of December, I hope it's not delayed!

If I were at Epcot tomorrow (now today), I'd keep an eye on it often. What's the down side?

I'd be at RD and asking the CM's - and if there was any possibility, I'd head directly over to TT before going to Soarin'. You can fit Soarin' better in with a FP later on if needed. But soft openings don't have FP - and often have rides down at times.

I'm hoping that someone posts some info on a soft opening in the next three days. I'm going on Saturday and might go to Epcot if soft openings are supposed to happen.

Stalking this thread hoping for good news! TT is my family's favorite ride and we'll be at EP on Wed.

We will arrive this Saturday. I've never ridden TT, so I really hope they're doing a soft opening sometime within the next week!

Does Disney ever open a ride late? Just wondering. We have until 12/8 to try to ride it.

No luck this afternoon. DH asked a cast member in front of the wall about it. He said it was supposed to soft open today but there were delays. He said it is still supposed to open on December 6 though.

Apparently cast members are riding today.

I'd say it looks good for soft opening soon.

They must be really close to opening as even Josh posts his report on this on his site: " Disney looks to be putting the finishing touches on the Test Track marquee before the walls come down on Wednesday (or Thursday)."

Full report here:
