    I was in the park May 7-11 and I saw it out on the track at least 4 times - with passengers onboard. I even have a picture (at home) to prove it. So I'm not sure what the delay is, but they WERE running it during the day while the park was open a couple weeks ago.

    Our VIP tour guide told us that they were only allowing CM's to ride it and it has not been cleared by OSHA for guests as passengers. Perhaps you were seeing CM's on board?

    They were testing it last week...only CM's were on that we saw. While in the DtD station, they were having problems opening the door to the front door and then one time it got stuck at the station (we were at the TomorrowLand station and sat on the train for a good 20 minutes before giving up)

    The fact that they are delaying the opening doesn't surprise me at all.

    It sure is pretty though!!

    That is correct, Disneyland CMs are like the test bunnies... kinda sad.

    2 of the previews were actually cancelled actually due to problems with the monorail.
