I truly hope so!They just announced cast previews for WDW cast today. August 1st to 16th with the land opening on the 29th... So I'm sure DVC and Passholder previews will be between Cast and Grand Opening.
As far as soft opening for Rise... I wouldn't be surprised if it's opened intermittently upwards of a week prior
Absolutely NOTIs this formally open to the public now, then?
Indeed, doesn't everyone know who I think I am!^ how dare you call CanobieFan "the public"
Probably because Disney didn't black out the annual pass holders... Silly move on Disney's part, even though it may have seemed sensible beforehand. Hopefully Florida's Star Wars Land is more popular, even though it's based on a franchise that Disney is running into the ground haha.So it would seem that this land thankfully won't be having the same problems as California's in attracting guests!
Yeah, but the number of WDW passholder is so, so much lower when compared to DLR, where basically every SoCal resident holds a pass.Probably because Disney didn't black out the annual pass holders...
This is true, but Disney would have known this, which is why I still think it was a bad move to block out most of your customer base. Yeah, I know crowd control was the reason, but it seems Disney just pulled another Euro Disney opening.Yeah, but the number of WDW passholder is so, so much lower when compared to DLR, where basically every SoCal resident holds a pass.
For what it's worth, WDW *has* blocked out all cast admissions for the next 3 months... so that's some 70,000 Orlando locals who can't go...
