    There were some cast member buzzings earlier this year that testing would begin approximately 2 months before opening. They said it was necessary because of the scope of the redoing of the ride. This will not only help perfect the ride system, but also allow for the adjustment of the special effects.
    Can someone confirm?

    I can't confirm, but that would make perfect sense. I wouldn't be surprised if soft-openings/tech rehearsals began in mid-May...

My husband loved Space Mountain as a kid and it would be a huge disappointment if we left our trip without going on the ride.
    I was talking with a few CM's in both DCA and DL about this. There are 2 things that MAY be happening. 1: May 16th the ride CM's schedules are being "shifted" simular to what happened to the food service staff (verified this with 3 separate CM's in different areas of the parks). 2: other CM's told me when talking to them (1 in DCA near Screamin', and 1 in Astro blasters) that they have been told to be ready for possible soft openings end of may or early june.

    Now if any of the CM's on the micechat boards can comment on this without breaking confidence or risking your jobs please do
