My advice to the AP's is try and make the AP previews and if you can't make it or if you're not an AP, get there when the park first opens. I wouldn't want to be be waiting in no 4 hour line that will most likely only get longer.
"Well I don't know about you folks, but it's way past my bedtime."
I wanted to post this in the AP preview thread, but theres just too many posts. I think the AP previews will be handled like FPs. The way ppl described it, APs will get a FP for immediate boarding. So I think what they're going to do is have the attraction soft opened for all guests, and APs will just get a FP so they don't have to wait in the long lines. I'm just speculating though, but it would make the most sense if you think about it.
That makes sense. Although it does defeat the purpose of that being an AP preview if the general public gets to ride it too.
Hopefully what you described is the case tomorrow as I didn't get the AP preview and i'm going tomorrow to conduct my first DLR update.
In a way i'm mad that i'm not at either park right now considering i've been waiting over 10 years for this ride. At the same time though I don't feel like standing in line for 4 hours in the hot sun. The hardest part about waiting is avoiding all the spoilers and footage from the ride!
For those of you who are going I hope you have a great time though on whats sure to be the best Disney attraction since the indiana jones adventure.
Fuuuuudge. I JUST got home from the park. I'm going to wait and see what the AP previews/soft open situation is like. If AP previews is a "one-and-done" situation, I'm going to be frustrated and just go on Sunday anyways.
