Me too. I wonder if that's why they named the place Shades of Green ... because those of us who aren't going any time soon turn all shades of green thinking about all of you who are.

That may be too true. I have felt a bit green for the last few months while you all have been having trips.

Well we are down to low single digets now. I will be checking in here while we are at SOG. Is there anything anyone wants me to check on while I am there? We have 5 nights so I will be happy to check out anything you may need or find anwers to any questions.

The plan is to drop by this thread hopefully once a day if the wireless is good.

The one thing I have been itching to know is what the updated test track is like. It was closed when we were there in May. Has it changed a lot? I hope not too much. Love that ride. Please let us know once you have gone on it. Thanks!!! And I will be sure to be various shades of green just for you.

Test Track isn't supposed to reopen until end of November, early December. From what I have been reading and I don't understand it all, it is being completely revamped, I really hope not, we loved that ride, just the way it was.

From what I understand from watching a live chat with the Imagineer behind the refurb, the track is going to be the same, except there's a part towards the end where it goes kind of "Tron-like" and you get to see your concept car.

Ok, that sounds good. DH was worried that it would become all virtual, but I told him that I thought it would mostly remain the same.

Maybe if you are lucky, they will have a soft opening while you are there. We can hope, can't we?

This is SO true! I haven't been there in over three years, and I am super green!

My DBF was so upset b/c test track has not been open the last two times he's been there. The first time he was there was when they were building it, then we went in August and it was in refurb.
