Exclusive preview May 29

Has anyone heard about an exclusive preview of WWOHP on May 29 for package holders and onsite hotel guests? If a preview was held on that date, does that mean that soft openings would definitely not be before the
29th?

No softs have been announced. Don't try to second guess when they will or will not be because no one knows and you'll drive yourself CRAZY!!!

-Inside the castle there is a soundtrack playing (Forget the name of it toil in trouble or something) and once you get to the area where you pick your row there are sound effects of someone saying slay your dragon, and there are dragon roaring noises as well it sounded really good.
-As seen in one of the pics below, there looks to be a second entrance into Dervish and Banges coming from the dueling dragons exit. This might be old news but I never knew it.
-Oh were so close I can feel it!!!

Enjoy the pictures!!!

















































Part two up in a few minutes.

Wow, thanks for sharing the photos! I haven't been to IoA since the end of March, which is my longest stretch not going in about a year, which is slightly scary and amazing (as I am on the team behind Infinitus I've been back-and-forth-ing a lot over the last few years) and it's just fantastic to look at how amazing everything is going to be! And I'll be there in just about five weeks! It's mind boggling and made of SQUEE.

Has anyone confirmed if Resort guests are able to get into WWoHP an hour before opening? When calling to make my reservation, I was told this but just looking to confirm
