For the next couple of weeks, you should find unrestricted soft openings, where if the ride is up and running, that anyone can get in the queue.
In early January, there are hard ticketed CM previews planned. It is unknown if regular guests will be allowed to also ride, or if it is restricted.
Then I wouldn't be shocked to see some hard ticketed AP previews (book a time online, and print your ticket at home) after that, more than likely, those previews will be restricted to just those with the passes.
Then a few days before the 23rd, plan for the attraction to be closed to prepare for the official grand opening.
