Very good new, indeed!
Did you see that wild suits the workers were wearing?

At least an opening date SOMETIME in June is looking better now.

Despicable Me Soft Opening?

Does anyone have any news on the soft opening for Despicable Me? We are leaving 6/1 for the weekend and it would make our trip!
Gratzi!

5 days until we are back "home" at the Portofino!

No news yet.

You might get a soft opening but I would not count on it. I read somewhere they have not even started staff training yet. Some said yesterday that they heard the ride operating from the gift shop but that's it. I'm guessing it will have soft opening in the middle of June with a grand open end of June or July 4th week.
