We just got home.. No soft openings the 28-31st. But I would think just any day they will have them. The cute minions and the human ones too are dancing often in front of the house and of course around the park and at parade time. the day we wore our minion shirts it rained so didnt see them at all.. but on Thursday we did. . they are so darn cute and one tried to come home with me.. I want him! wonder if he would unpack and do al the laundry for me..

Sorry you missed it but remember...soft openings are not announced and it's purely a timing thing.

Was obviously testing today (you can hear it very clearly from the Shrek line) but no indication of letting patrons in (at least as of 3PM - that's how long we could take the rain before we headed back the our hotel).

We're here 'till the 5th - maybe we'll get lucky.

Was it the queue video or the actual ride it self?

Hmmm - good question about the queue video vs. the actual ride. Not sure - only know it was coming from inside the building and it was loud. We'll check it out again tomorrow and maybe we'll figure out more.

If it's running on the 3rd as projected please let me know Spewey! I'll be there on the 4th but don't want to get the kids excited about it unless I can confirm someone rode it on the 3rd.

From what I've read and videos I've seen so far, the queue line video is VERY loud.
not getting my hopes too high though. (but not canceling my on site til the last hour either!)
