    Thank you. Super excited!!! As it is that much closer to Newcastle.

    If someone hears about the soft opening, a share would be greatly appreciated

    Usually soft opening is a few days before the grand opening. I think we went to Yorkdale on Monday with the Grand Opening on the Saturday.

    Are you sure you don't want to cancel your weeklong cruise on the Fantasy so you can go? I would be willing to take your spot, if I really really had to.

    Soooooooooo...... Does anyone have any info on a soft opening yet????
    I tried asking at Yorkdale this weekend and was told they "didn't know" but historically it happens on the Wednesday prior to grand opening.
    Anyone have any input and/or confirmation????

    I was in Disney Store today. Very pretty store. There was a celebration for a little girl who was making her first visit to a Disney Store. Her name was on the big screen and she received a certificate - it was very sweet.

    The only problem I had was talking to a CM who didn't know the difference between DL and WDW :scratchin

    Really?!?!?!?

    The only day we can all go as a family is Saturday morning. Not really wanting to go and deal with the crowds, but oh we'll. Will have to make sure I am there for open.

    Yes, really, I was speaking to a CM and mentioned friends were going to visit Mickey in Florida, her reply 'I hope they have fun at Disneyland' :sad2:

    I did not even correct her because I was so surprised.

    The Bestie and I are going to the Disney Store tomorrow and hopefully I can find a Donald Duck tshirt. I had one before (it said "I flunked out of Anger Management" -- my mom bought it for me and she knows me SOOOO well!) but lost it in the laundry room of the old apt. building :confused3. Dang, I still miss that tshirt! *keeping fingers crossed*

    It's where HMV used to be. Kind of across from Old Navy and near the food court.
