    It would be fine. Within a week it would be permanently puke stained anyway.

    Seems a bit premature with all the equipment lying around, either way progress is good news.

    I said we’ve gotta be getting close (as in within the next month or so - they want it open for SWGE after all ), not that it was opening tomorrow :lol:

    Rumor is Disney's target date for this to open is August 28th, but only the AoA/Pop, CBR and DHS stations. So basically the whole Epcot route would be on hold, supposedly due to construction both at Riviera and Ratatouille (there's now a height restriction in place for vehicles for certain parts of the Rat courtyard).

    Interesting I thought they would’ve used this as a promotion Star Wars as well. (I find it very hard to believe it won’t be going to DHS for Star Wars even as a soft opening)

    It does seem like a missed opportunity.

    They do have to train an entire ops team how to operate a new mode of transportation (for Disney), so I imagine they’re being cautious because of that.

    I don't know if this shows the unexpected early opening for Galaxy's Edge.

    Maybe. Disney did always say Fall for Skyliner, anyway. This will be opening at the very beginning of Fall. The system is cycling pretty well though right now so I still wouldn’t be surprised at softs not too long after SWGE.

    I've heard there will be CM previews coming for the Skykiner in the coming weeks as part of the testing procedures.
