I live in the area and visit often. Every time I take a peek it seems to be very slow progress, at least on the exterior. That bright yellow 'skeleton' of the rock face doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. I wouldn't expect anything soon, but I do keep my fingers crossed for springtime--we are also waiting patiently for MagicBands to be released for AP holders.

Make a one day resort reservation and you will get MagicBands sooner! But internal testing is underway, so I am guessing it will be soon after January 1.

Here now and it does not look close to me. Late spring would be my guess.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, we're college freshmen and I got my AP using my graduation money, so I don't know if I'll be able to do that before they release the bands anyway...sounds like a really good idea, though!

Should have never hired union dwarfs.

I heard they were working on the rocks last week from some friends that were there. Maybe sooner rather than later.

Disney would be STUPID to do a soft opening on NYE. That is just asking for a riot. I can imagine what the CM's would have to go through that day. It's the busiest day of the year and EVERYONE would want to ride, or be compensated if they didn't get to. It would be a guest relations nightmare.

However I do believe it is within the realm of possibility, as I'll-advised as it may be.
