Super! A potential opening date. I think CM testing is fairly routine. I know they do that for new resorts. That's good news!

Still no CG reservations, though. Hope they aren't waiting until August to release those.

I love a good rumor! Thanks! I hope that means reservations will open sometime soon.

Nothing on ADRs; I don't know why I didn't ask but I really didn't think of it. Also, just wanted to mention that one of the CMs did elaborate on what they were doing with the restaurant though I think all of this is generally known. Apparently, they've torn down or removed everything except the ceiling (they even replaced the windows) and it will look very different with a very different theme. Some stuff on the menu will be removed (but not much) but mostly things will be added including an expanded sushi selection. Again, this is tentative and second-hand.

Then (drum roll please), on August 24 or 25 (we heard differing dates), the restaurant would reopen to the general public. Now, obviously, this is second-hand and should be treated as a rumor until we receive official verification.
That would be great. We are there until Aug 30th.

I made my res. for my Dec. trip just now. Nothing for CG yet. Byt what really surprised me was that they didn't have Fantasmic Dinner times yet for the Brown Derby on Dec. 9th. I've never run up against this before at 180 days out.

Perhaps Fantasmic or Brown Derby will be down for refurb then.

Brown Derby is a great restaurant right now it is my back up for Cali Grill

Fantasmic is a good show it is not as good as the one in California from what I have heard though so maybe it is getting some updating

Yes, this happened to me last year too. Tried to book Fantasmic package online and showed no availability. Called in and was able to book exactly what I wanted, no problem. I would call.
