    Do you think they will do a few AP preview nights?

    This is just speculation, but:
    over 1,000,000 AP'ers + normal guests + major hype for this show + 18,000 showpasses a night (two showings of 9,000 in the Park) = get there early.

    I'd think they would, but even still, not totally sure at this point.

    I hope they do the AP nights. It would really help them out to have a couple thousand fewer people opening night.

    Im hoping they do some kind of preview/soft opening. It'll let them test out the GC since it's expected to be hectic on June 11th.

    I'm hoping for a D23 preview, a lot less members than AP's. Maybe they will do a lottery for AP's like TSMM.

    Re: "World of Color" OFFICIALLY Debuts June 11, 2010

    See, this is what bugs me about showpass..

    a) If people have to work a 9-5 they're out of luck in getting a showpass and probably a valid spot in any stand-by line.

    b) People in my situation who have small children and drive up 100 miles to see WoC will almost be forced to arrive in the morning/early afternoon to secure their showpass and then basically wait 10-12 hrs to see the show. They would almost for sure need to get a hotel room to cope with the general "small children" stuff like naps, getting them out of the heat, etc.

    Perhaps I'm just whining here but the WoC showpass plan doesn't seem all too fair given the fact that on any given Fri-Sun you can easily get 10,000 guests into the resort by 11:30am. Odds are that in the first few months after Jun 11th, 95% of these morning guests will make the early trek out to DCA to secure their spot for WoC.

    I can understand your situation, as I'm 100+ miles north, so I know what it's like. But from a business perspective, the showpass is the greatest way to get guests in the park and somewhat stay in the park. Get them there early to secure a spot for the WoC. Smart idea...but in my opinion, I think that first come first serve could be the best way.

    There goes my plans for a quiet weekend at DLR for my birthday. I'm curious to see how they will handle the crowds.

    Finally, a set date! I'll be out for the summer, so I'll see it. I'm only worried about the crowds, meaning I'll have to wait it out to see this.
