    Star Tours II Progress?

    Just finished reading Orlando Park hopper- great update, but I had a question...

    In DHS, how is Star Tours II looking? I know its supposed to be open by late May, but I haven't seen any updates on it at all. So, how is it doing?

    From what I know, the outside is not going to be changing at all. All changes will be inside the preshow area and in the simulators. So we won't see any of that until the attraction opens next month.

    I could imagine that the attraction is almost at the same level as Disneyland's and possibly more complete at the moment.

    Any chance they would be doing some testing when I'm down there May 7th-14th? I know its a long shot and I figure I'm a week off but hey why not try.

    It's possible that they may have a soft opening. I wouldn't count on it though.

    I wonder if they'll be keeping the "hot set" theme. That decision could be pretty telling about the direction the park is heading for the future.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    I have seen the new costumes and I think they look horrible, not very Star Wars-ish. Will try to find the pic that my friend took and post it.

    As far as soft openings, I am not holding out for one right now. Things are very tight at the moment

    (PS, I love the costume! I think I would love to cross-train just to get to wear it ).
