So, I know we all know the CMs can often give out information with varying degrees of truthfulness, but I had to laugh at my most recent conversation with one on the phone. I had called to get info and rates for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in February.

CM: Oh, so you're going to get to try out the new Mine Coaster.
Me: Oh really? It'll be open in February?
CM: They said 2014.
Me: Yes, I thought they said late Spring or early Summer 2014?
CM: No, it's going to be open soon. They're almost finished.



I know it's "possible," but they really shouldn't be telling people this!

Any "new" word on when the mine train might open? I know that the last thing I read was Spring, 2014. We'll be there May 24th to June 7th next year and would love to experience it.

Nope, that's still the official target.

That's what I figured since I hadn't read otherwise. Oh well, we'll be back in 2015 if it's not open during our 2014 trip.

I like your chances, honestly. We'll see.
