I was disappointed when I missed SE by just a couple of minutes - I saw people as they came off. But it was still really neat to be that close. I saw people getting on as I was winding my way through Epcot on the monorail, and they closed it at 9pm. Thanks to my friend who called and let me know as well, it was really nice to be told.
They do open it when they don't expect so many people. If they opened it tonight, you'd think it would be a bit busier since it's an EMH night. But we'll see. It could be anytime, or not anytime. My website was never meant to be a "scoop" site but a walk site - it's fun when I can be first at something, but I need to lay off that. I am also not a rumor person. It's fun to hear things occasionally, but nobody gets anything right 100%.
Oh - I don't like hotlinking either. I would rather someone use the pics and credit me, but not hotlinking. (which is why there is now a message when someone does - just not a mean one!) I didn't realize what hotlinking was until having the site.
I am looking forward to SSE. That is a favorite attraction (in my top 2) at Epcot, and I think I'll love the changes. I am so glad they aren't supposed to change too much on the way up (I am not looking at anyone elses site, I want to see it first in person).
