    May 4th Space Mountain Preview?

    Al says there might be one. So what do you guys think? Will this actually happen? My opinion, is nope. Though I really wish I had tickets for that day, just in case . hah

    As awesome as it would be I have little/no expectation of it.

    It seems like quite the long shot, but on the other hand, they did work really hard to make sure the queue looks nice in time for May 5th, so who knows.

    From what I've heard, they are done w/ the building of the ride, it's the insurance for it that is holding them back from opening it sooner. I can only imagine how expensive it would be to insure since the issue with BTMR.

    That is a VERY interesting thought CP. I never thought about that. I had always heard that Disney was self insured for the parks. But perhaps that is not the case. Interesting indeed.

    Anyone know more about this?

    I wouldn't think that Disney would need insurance. Their pockets seem big enough, especially since they rarely pay out claims. If an accident happens and the park is at fault, they pay, no questions. Can you imagine all the silly claims that would be made against them if it were otherwise? This is all just conjecture, of course.

    And Disneyland gets petty sues enough as it is

    Ah, I love my MouseTales books.

    But yes, I am curious as well.

    For dangerous rides like roller coasters I would think that insurance is a requirement in a theme park and it may be a law.
    You have to insure your home and your car, why wouldn't you have to obtain insurance for a potentially dangerous ride?
    They probably don't need it, but I bet they are still required to get it...

    Here is my thought;

    Since the ride is not being built in house, IE, The "Coaster" section of the ride was built by Vekoma, it probably needs to be insured from an outside source. Sure Disney settles claims every day, but they still have insurance.

    Every place has insurance, if the park burnt down, they'd go to the insurance company :P

    Dosh also needs to come in and approve the attraction before non employees can ride.
