    Seven Dwarfs Opening Date

    Just heard from the dedication that the Seven Dwarfs open officially May 28th. How in the world that makes sense is anyone's guess...

    I'm going in two weeks hoping to catch a ride on it. I know soft openings are common, but I wanted to ask all of you based on your experience. I'll be there for a week. What should I do to make sure I get on it? Or will it probably be up and running?

    Thanks!

    I have this exact same problem. I'm there from May 6-15, and I'm going to start throwing virgins into a volcano to please the Disney gods to at least have soft openings when I'm there. Anyone know anything about this??

    We got on soft opening for the Ariel ride. Just pay attention when your on that side of the park. If there are Disney employees standing near the entrance, just ask. They had a sign up for "Employees only, and tag holders or something like that. My wife asked to get her mother a ride (shes in her 70's) and they said ok and let us ride it.

    I rode Ariel before it opened. The first time we rode it they just asked random people and the second time in our visit they had a sign out saying they were "testing" and let only so many people in.

    I know a couple people who went to the press event yesterday. Both agreed it's 100% ready to open.

    This makes me think it will be soft opened most of the time between now and the official opening day on the 28th.

    The only thing I can see that needs adjusting, from the videos I've watched, is the audio in the mine show scene seems to be out of sync sometimes. When the trains reach Doc, that's when "Heigh-Ho" is supposed to kick in and sometimes it hasn't, which makes that part of the ride awkwardly silent. Hopefully they'll be adjusting that so it works properly at least 90% of the time over the next few weeks. I'd expect soft opening within a week or so from now, but no guarantee.

    I was there two weeks ago and they still had techs working on the track, adjusting and rewiring the brake zones. Wouldn't be surprised if they stop running it again and tweak things for a few weeks.
