They were testing it while we were there a week ago. But...

we didn't get to watch (we could only hear it) and they closed off all of new Fantasyland from BOG. We were on our way to Ariel so were bummed about it.

Opening Date

Has there been any progress that is noticeable since some of the walls have come down?

Yes you can clearly see that some more grass has been added to the top of the mountain to give it a more floral feel. Some of the track is also being repainted where it has already been wore down from testing.

I was hoping it would be open when I go (end of May to beginning of June)! I'm so excited about it, even if I do miss the old Snow White ride.

What exactly is a soft opening? We are going April 26th through the 30th. Hopeful but will be very disappointing if we miss it by one day

a soft opening is a test for the ride before they open it up to full capacity and the general public. They usually start with CM testing and then go to AP testing and so on. Their is a media event on April 30th for the ride.

FYI, they were testing it last evening. One train was empty, one had weights in all the passenger compartments.

they have been testing with weights and without for a few months now and it happens almost everyday. I think we may see imagineers sitting along for a ride very soon. The track was finished almost 5-6 months ago they just need to finish landscaping and doing detail work.

I predict a early April soft opening. (By early I meant he first two weeks)
