    About 99% of the work on the rock is done. The sad thing is that the back of the mountain can be seen 'uncovered'. You can see the building the mountain is trying to hide when you drive into AK. You can also see it atop Blizzard Beach and at the top of the ToT before you drop.... I can't believe the design team didn't think about that one.

    I noticed that when driving into AK too (couldn't get the DH to stop the car so I could take a pic ), but didn't realize it was so visible elsewhere.

    Either they have laid off the designers who did such a good job with ToT and Morocco, or maybe there is something else yet to be done (trees like in Canada?) That rockwork is mighty expensive and time consuming, so I can understand why they aren't doing it on the 'back', but I hope they do have something else up their sleeve to disguise the building better.

    I hear that there may be a "soft opening" of Everest in late January/early February. Any idea what a soft opening entails? I'll be in WDW the 1st week of February and would love a sneak preview!

    I went last Sep. and it has just added the rock which makes it look so much better and that i bet it blends much better to the rest of AK(but not the back bc of the unfinished part). Im so sad that it wont be out when i go in Jan. But we wont be at AK anyway bc the group im going w/ is splitting an MGM day w/ and AK day. How sad is that.
