    LOL, its amazing what passes for 'news' sometimes. We've known litterally since 2007 it will open in 2012. I dont think 'summer' is really a much of surprise to anyone since thats always been the target time. An actual DATE would be nice, but its still so far away it wouldnt matter now anyway. Everyone is probably just assuming June like WOC last year and TLM this year. I think July would be too late considering it would open when the summer season is in full swing, so June most likely.

    Summer doesn't start until late June. Carsland will open much later than The Little Mermaid and World of Color. Think more like 4th of July weekend.

    Sorry for off-topic-ish-ness, but this is something I haven't thought about til now since I have never experienced it... Do they hold soft openings for new lands?

    Maybe, but when was the last time Disney opened a major attraction THAT late in the season? In fact every summer opening has been in June the last few years: Nemo, TSM, WOC, ST and TLM.

    The reason is you want to get tourist to book as early as possible. Both WOC, ST and TLM wouldve opened sooner if it wasnt for technical delays and logistical issues. Again, it could be July but I cant recall the last time Disney has opened something this big that late in the season...in any of their parks.

    It's been so long since a new land has opened in any Disney park in the states. I imagine that Disney would hold soft openings for Carsland in a similar fashion that Universal did for Harry Potter. I would like to see them offer special packages for hotel guests to preview the new land before everyone else. I would be totally on that.

    Yeah, I cant recall either! Was it Toontown?? LOL, it cant be THAT long ago, can it?

    I know Toy Storyland opened in Paris, but no idea if there was a soft opening or not. But I imagine there would be. If they do it for rides to work out logistics issues and train employees for, I imagine as something as big as this they would. Rather its for regular people, Apers or CMs, who knows but something will happen.

    It really wasn't that long ago, with Bug's land/Flik's fun fair.

    And they did set up special viewing times for annual passholders. I think it did cost $15 or $20 bucks, and included a special pin, "bug juice", and a rice krispie treat, along with a special time that you could visit the new land, with limited number of reservations per hour, in order to keep the crowds on the low side during your time.

    Once Carsland open, it will indeed be my last time renewing my annual pass until probably 2015.

    Cars Land needs to open up in early July to even be remotely useful to Disney's 2012 summer campaign. My bets would have to say late June, with mid-June soft-openings/AP previews.
