As I said earlier

I very much doubt its opening then considering they only put out the advert for hiring people last week. Also the media preview event is on 30th April which would suggest an early May opening


The media event is on 30th April so that wont be the opening date

I can also point out that opening hours makes Disney more value for money than Alton Towers. Like for £48 the park is open 10am to 6pm on average. Disney is $96 with the exchange rate at the moment works out to be £57.77 and the Magic Kingdom park is open 9am to 12am on average this week to all guests.

Was hoping for a duel loading station to keep the queues always moving as we going next in 2016 with our then 4 year old and she wouldn't want to queue for hours.

A brilliant picture update on DPB showing the detail of the cottage which I believe the train interacts with and queue line. It really does look amazing and the attention to detail I cannot even put in to words how incredible it is.

An update now with the confirmation that the media event will take place between April 30th and May 2nd. The text also states that the rides official opening could be before or after these dates and the invitation doesn't label it as the rides grand opening or anything of the kind :)
Looks like it could open as early as a few weeks! :)

Well everyone knew the media event was then so it wouldn't take a lot to think that if the media event was April 30th that it would actually open in May considering April only has 30 days :lol:

What I said was quoting what another website had stated. Of course everyone would like to see a ride ready earlier, but insinuating I didn't know, well I can assure you I did :)

Maybe you should have posted that then to avoid confusion at a later date then, like what has occurred now. Also it would have informed other people who do not have as much knowledge as yourself :)

So with under a month until opening, Walt Disney Imagineering have given us a sneak peek video of the dwarf animatronics and projections in the mine.
WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS PARTS OF THE INDOOR SECTION OF THE RIDE. IF YOU WISH TO KEEP THIS UNKNOWN FOR YOURSELF PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE READING OR CLICK ON THE LINK.

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2 ... haracters/

They look amazing and some of the most incredible theming I've ever seen on a ride. If you look back at some of my older updates you can see i say that a lot but they just keep giving more and more and making it more amazing!

Enjoy! :)
