Wouldn't you love to be able to use one of those beautiful, pristine bathrooms? I'm impressed with the other stuff, but a new, fresh bathroom really gets me excited!!

So how does this work?? They open things sporadically from now until opening date?? If they open the bathrooms then it should all just stay open

The real answer to how the soft openings will work is, we don't know.

I was in HS while there were soft openings for Star Tours. It would be open for a while and then closed. You never knew what to expect. You could be in line and told the ride was closed and that you needed to leave. I would think rides could work like this.

Saying that, I would not think they would close off the entire area once they have it opened, but the rides may open or closed at any time.

Thank you!!! It's not on the customized map (which shows a blob of FL), and was closing as part of Toontown last time we were there!

Great pictures everyone - thanks for sharing them!

I wonder if they will decorate this area for Christmas? I think Belle's village would be the perfect Christmas village.

This is being classed as a "Dress Rehearsal" (to help the cast members) by Disney. There are no guarantees how long it will be open for, and things may need to be closed without notice. So enjoy it while you can!
