    Oh so cool! I can't wait! I will be there in April, and I will definitely go on it! I bet the creature animatronic will be wicked cool (it might even scare me a little, but it's all good ).

    I was just talking to a CM there yesterday and he informed me that CM previews should be taking place by the end of Dec or sometime in Jan, with passholder previews taking place in probably late Feb or March. I also got some neat new pics to share with you guys when i get home tonight and get them resized and stuff...

    I was just ranting in another thread about my first ride on Soarin' being during a passholder preview session... How cool would it be if we could put together a DWT "first ride" during one of the preview days? I'd definitely make time to get there for that. Anyone else think they might be game for that?

    Or how about... does anyone know how we might find out exactly when that preview is going to be so that we might start making plans?

    Hmmm... X-Mas time? Haven't heard that one yet. But no matter... I'm going to be home in CT then.

    But, why X-Mas?... That's not a good time for a preview! That's a time for a grand opening. Isn't that like WDW's busiest time of the year? I know April is busy with spring break season and all, and I know the summers are busy too, but I'm pretty sure X-Mas is the busiest of all. Unless their plan is to give a preview while everyone is there for X-Mas and by doing so draw a larger crowd for April. I dunno how they think. All i know is that they better be sure to let me know when I'm going to be able to ride... it looks awesome! And I've heard such amazing things about this yetti... he's supposed to be the most complex AA figure Disney has yet put into an attraction. I just hope (s)he's not so complex that it breaks down often! (Does anyone know if a yetti is gender specific?)

    btw... the yetti has a x-mas stocking on the side of goofy's float in the DAK's Jingle Jungle parade. I thought that deserved a good chuckle.
