Headed there next Friday. Having breakfast with the Minions on Saturday morning (will report back on that if anyone is interested) and hoping the ride is officially open then.

Remember everyone...Despicable Me is only in test mode or soft opening right now. The attraction will not be completely and regularly open until the official opening in the near future. The attraction can close at any time as there is no set schedule at this time.

I was the first one on TM previews on Friday. I really enjoyed the ride. I ended up riding it four times throughout the preview time slot. I probably will wait awhile to ride it now since it seems like lines will be through the roof for quite awhile.

I'm looking around the web for reviews. Most of its operation saw waits of 2 hours or more. The 2 preshow rooms and indoor queues sound amazing from what I hear. Then comes the ride, which focuses more on his daughters. I'm taking a guess that Gru is the focus of the preshows as Universal has been saying Gru turns you into minions. I'm actually hearing the ride is shorter then Jimmy Neutron by maybe 15 seconds. The ride is getting rave reviews, but some have an impact on the indoor queue.

Please answer ASAP! We left UNIVERSAL on Thursday and I am sick about missing my chance. We are now about 2 hours away from Orlando at the beach and headed back to Texas early in the morning/Sunday. We will not return to Universal for a few years, so this is a big deal.

Please tell me if the people allowed on MM have been regular park goers or just TMs. Also, do you know if park goers will be allowed to ride on Sunday/today?

If so, we may be willing to drive 3-4 hours out of our way to ride it. But I need to know FAST!

Thanks!

You better be glad I'm up at 1 in the the morning. Today, soft openings started around 7:30, but they would of started earlier if they weren't setting up the wait time. It will be open today, but it's off limit to guests 2-4 PM, since that's when TMs can ride. I'd go and see what happens, but you're more likely to find a soft opening around 11 AM or Noon.

Just so everyone knows the post show is the dance party, so you have three options when you leave the vehicle:

1. Dance!
2. Stand back and watch the people dance.
3. Bypass it completely and go into Super Silly Stuff.

Yes, but they can happen any time during the day.

The attraction has been open for anyone during this soft opening period but there is no way of knowing if it would be open when you happen to visit so I wouldn't chance it. Soft openings have no scheduled operation schedule so even if it's open now there's a good chance that it would be closed when you arrive. Unless you're willing to spend a day to take a chance, I wouldn't worry about it.

There's no set operating schedule...it's all luck of the draw.
