I get the feeling that we will not see a soft opening for us on Friday. Hopefully, we will have a chance next week. Our next scheduled day at Epcot is on the 5th. I'm really hoping that we will have a chance to ride it this trip.

Here now. It is not open. Asked a CM about a soft opening ride, she came back 10 minutes later and was told to check back on Thursday/Friday.

The official date is December 6, and I'd be surprised if Disney has announced soft opens. Link, please?

I'm not sure if that field ever said anything other than Nov 30 to be honest, so I wouldn't take it as anything more than an editing failure.

Soft Opening means they operate the ride without fan-fair that it's open.
