    Well, today is the "official opening." So there will be some press there who want to record this historic occasion.
    Yesterday was for some of the press who want to have a story in today's paper about the opening today, along with the standard, "I want to ride it, or I'll give it a poor review," blackmailing process. And yesterday's press likely got plied with alckyhol, part of the blackmailing process as well. Them reporters love their alckyhol.

    Oh hell if I worked for Disney in marketing I would milk the nemo opening with the press for as long as I could. Its the poor day trippers and vacationers who lose out today. I feel bad for them. Imagine waisting 5 to 6 hours of your day at the park for a 14 min ride because the press need here 4+ hour event.

    when they did the soft opening on friday the line was only like a hour long and it was open to everyone I think it should be alright and calmed down in a few weeks!

This press event messed up the entire park. Every ride had huge lines. Star Tours had a 1/2 hour wait. I cant remember every when that ride had such a big line. Space Mt. when down around 9:30 this morning. The starcade was closed to the press event. Its a dang mad house. This is the worst planed press event ever from Disney. There were huge walls up from that ball fountain all around to lagoon side of the Matterhorn. They should have held the press event today and opened the ride tomorrow. I guess it will be quite a while till i ever get to ride nemo. Good luck to you all who went today. Lets see some pics of the madness if you have them.

    5 Hours! Are you serial? Did they close the line?

    No, I can't imagine that, because I can imagine being on 14 other attractions on a Monday "off-season" instead of waiting in line for 5-6 hours.

    Could you define "calmed down"?

    Given the limited capacity of the ride combined with the fact it's a pretty good attraction (based on early reviews) I could see waits of two hours or more being the norm for years to come.....

    Gotta agree with you. Very interesting how we all can see/interpret things so differently from one another.

    Now you're giving attitude for someone who gave some good counter observation from Florida.

    Heck...it's not uncommon for Indy and Splash to reach 120 min waits on really busy days.

    True, those are two of the most popular attractions in the park, its days like these that those two attractions will sky rocket with people!
