    Apparently Jay Rasulo told Smith Barney today that Mission: Space is opening in "late summer".

    They would not be hiring cast now for a August soft open, look for a soft open in mid-june.

    I'll hopefully hit WDW in a month. My brother knows an Imagineer who works at Mission Space. I think we'll be seeing him and doing lunch. I'll see what I can dig up.

    If we all fling pixie dust and pray really hard, maybe, just maybe I will be able to ride Mission: Space in August while I am there.

    Please, oh please lets give all the pixie dust we can to make my wish come true!!!

    Oh, so selfish :rolleyes:

    As a hint for the timing of the December press event, remember that Dec 17th will be the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brother's first flight ( http://www.centennialofflight.gov/index2.cfm )

    And according to the "rumors", Labor Day has been the final, drop-dead, get this open, head rolling date for a while now. They want to get it open early, there is still a lot of work to do. And just because other departments are proceeding on a master schedule doesn't mean that everyone will be able to meet their deadlines.

    It doesn't appear that the grand opening will be before August 30. There's a new sweepstakes on Disney.com that ties in Treasure Planet and Mission Space. The grand prize is a trip for 4 to Disney and includes invitations to the premiere party of Mission:Space. The fine print reads that the winner has to travel on the dates that the party is held and those dates are to be determined.

    This sweepstakes runs from now thru August 30 so I think it's probably safe to say that the official grand opening won't be before that date.

    Soft openings...now that's another story.
