The Little Mermaid has soft opened!

TLM has soft opened today, obviously it could close at any time, but for everyone heading out over half term there's a good chance you'll get to experience it

I saw it from various people on twitter, the line was posting a 10 min wait and somebody had a shot of the facade, which just looks amazing.

What an exciting bit of news! I read this on my phone very late last night and when I woke up this morning thought I had dreamed it!
But no there is a possibility of me experiencing some extra magic in half term (2 weeks today!). Like others I don't want to get my hopes up but will watch the developments on here with interest! Thanks for sharing!

Am I being too hopeful in thinking there may be preview of BOG restaurant, even just a peek through the window would be so exciting!

Looks like current soft opening of new fantasyland will end on 19 Oct, and then its Cast Mdmbers Only Previewsafter that until Nov 3rd.

So if you are there this week, you get a chance to experience almost all new FL has to offer. Outside of this week, apart from special Annual Pass previews or if you are a Disney Employee, then doesn't look likely.

I am there Oct 20-Nov 3, so will miss opportunity :-(

Yep, our visit falls during the previews too. Maybe it won't be closed the whole time...
