Yeah, seems like if there are soft openings in January, it would be January 6 at the earliest.

Not to mention can you just imagine how bad of a first day that would be for soft opening?

I'll be there Apr. 4 - 7, so a soft opening will probably happen a day or two after that.

You and me both! (I'm 2/6) Especially since Splash is closed for all of February AGAIN next year, it would be really nice to have 7DMT open.

I just returned. Based on what I saw, late spring will be the earliest there would be a soft opening.

HA! No, it won't because, we'll be there from April 12 - 19, so the first soft opening will be on the 20th!

Winter hasn't even started. Spring doesn't start for more then 4 months and doesn't end for more then 7 months from now.

Disney has a lot of time before the attraction opening could be considered late.

Noticed this on the Nov 10th EasyWDW update talking about the mine train:

"It certainly doesn’t look like we’re talking about an opening in six weeks, though I have a source on the engineering team that swears up and down it’ll be operating by Christmas."

???
