    I would love 12 trains at once. Not gonna mond waiting for this one though to be honest. I actually like the buildup of waiting for new attractions.

    Despite being in a different state , this ride is helping to crush some of the marketing/internet hype behind the galaxy edge opening in DL. At least for me.

    As far as I know TM previews have not started yet, but I was also told that they are expecting to soft open to guests either Thursday or Friday. Trying to confirm, but that's the rumor right now...

    Hope you’re right. Others have been saying it won’t get any TM previews or soft openings. It’s going to be interesting if this ride ends up having no soft openings or TM previews at all. We all know how well that went for Gringotts.

    The ride, from what we can see, just doesnt seem to be having any issues like Gringotts was. So I wouldn't be surprised if there were softs. Im feeling they're going to want as much hype for this as possible with Star Wars opening as well, so softs for any type of media attention is probably a good thing for them, at the very least though some early word of mouth.

    That salamander is pretty firey-looking. It'd be a nice touch if there was an ice salamander somewhere.

    I will be in Orlando from June 8-11. Any chance that this might be running during those dates?

    Your best bet will be June 8 and 9. That being said NOTHING is confirmed or final.

    Tomorrow. Soft openings are never announced beforehand.

    (Don't expect anything tomorrow, AFAIK the ride hasn't been handed over to operations)

    Previews will not begin prior to TM previews.

    While this is pure speculating, I can't imagine there would be any softs before June. That'd be over 2 weeks of previews for a new Potter attraction. I just don't see them doing that. Im thinking the week of June 3rd is where we should truly begin looking. I wouldn't expect any this weekend though.

    Hope you’re right. (I get back from vacation June 2nd and will be able to cover it then.)
