    As we were leaving after Illuminations Monday night (11-12) they were testing/running cars. One right after another. :)

    Test Track was closed when we were there in July. I'm SO happy we will be able to ride it this January!

    That is a very good sign. I work in construction management and a few of my consultants are national and do work with Disney.

    They really go into high gear when they are close to opening, if the okay has been given by the county to open. No exact date, but it is a good sign.

    Oh my fingers are crossed!!! DS was so disappointed when we were there in Sept and Oct and I hadn't head the heart to tell him it still wouldn't be open when we go Dec 1-3, sounds like there may be hope yet!!!

    I was backstage this evening for cast choir rehearsal for the Candlelight Procession. The lights were on and cars were running. No people in them, but cars were definitely going through the course.

    OT, but is that the Dr Who phone Booth at the bottom of your page? DH got a hard cover for his iPhone 5 off the Internet with the phone booth on it to tide him over until he can pick a Disney one out when we go in Jan.

    OT: Stindall, I see you have the Davit Tenant Smilie as well :thumbsup2. Btw, thanks for the links on where to get those!

    Ok, back on topic. We will be in Epcot exactly 2 weeks from today for our first day in the parks and have a second day planned for 12/5. Has anyone heard anything yet regarding a soft opening?
