I re read the blog...I swear it originally said mid August...ha, I see the poster who linked it said mid-August and well...that's what stuck for me!

I was also thinking they would open ADRs up for early November and do a soft opening mid-late September...close to when they open ADRs...would be nice...I think this is encouraging though that Ariel and the other areas will be in soft opening as well...would be nice for all the October guests and selfishly I'd like to see how MNSSHP works with the new areas open so I can then plan for MVMCP

BTW, I can't see them moving Minnie to Pete's Silly Sideshow.

Guests wanted to have at least one location on property where they could meet the two mice together rather than seperately--a wish that was first granted when Mickey's Toontown Fair was in its final years by putting the two together in the Judge's Tent, so the smart thing to do would be to leave Minnie in the theater with Mickey, as they want.

I also stand by my belief that Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale will end up moving into the Town Squae Theater's princess room after the Fairytale Hall opens. It would make sense. And they are most certainly not going to leave that space empty and unused after the princesses' time at the theater is over.

EDIT: Besides, through plain common sense, they have to put SOMEONE in that empty space in the Theater once the princesses vacate that area. Why wouldn't they put in the rest of the fab 5 and/or some classic characters to join Mickey & Minnie in there? It only makes sense to do so. This is why they wouldn't put them in an additional meet-and-greet at story book circus, since it would be a ridiculously-unneeded addition.

Good

These kinds of threads always exhibit soft opening creep. A date will be posted, a logical soft opening date is figured out or even announced and then the creep starts.

"Well if the soft opening is scheduled for the last week of X maybe it will be open the third week when we are there."

then its

"Well if its maybe the third week, please please please make it the second week."

This keeps going until people hope it will be open months before the project even started.

Very true. I always laugh reading those posts. Wishful thinking is ok though.

The August 4th date is helpful because, I would assume, by the end of July an opening date for the restaurant would have to be announced so people can know for what dates they can make reservations on the 4th. Not likely to affect our trip, but there is plenty to do without the new things.

Not really, all it will tell you when it has to be open to honor those ADR's. They could soft and or hard open, just no ADR's, anytime between August 4 and the "Holidays".

I expect they'll do what they did with other restaurants (e.g. in Italy in Epcot) and have a firm date from which you can book ADRs (maybe sometime like 20th Dec onward?) but also announce that the restaurant will be open for walk-ups before then - a kind of soft-opening.

Sorry, I was not clear in what I meant. Once they take ADR's (whether for october, december, or february), we will know what is the latest date they expect to be open. Could, and probably will, have a soft or hard open before this date. But, knowing the date for the first available ADR will help many know if they can include BOG in their plans.

Not important anyway, just something for everyone to talk about.

August 4th, excellent! What are you thinking? Internet or phone for reservations? Wonder if the site will crash! Ha!

Consider BOG reservations begin August 4, I assume we will get an opening date
