New AK ride

Could not see any recent posts about this but sorry if I have missed one.

Any update on the new ride? Has it opened yet and is it good.

I've been following the construction of the ride on the website screamscape.com and it looks like it's going to be great! Right now they are doing cast member previews, and I think they are set to open in January.

Suggest you reverify the information you have on Cast Member Previews and the 1/06 opening date - you're somewhat premature several months.

According to allearsnet.com they are going open the ride for a preview to Disney Vacation Club Members (they can bring 3 guests along) on Jan. 26-29. For the complete story go to this site:


I read on another site (can't remember which one), that they are planning on doing the "Grand Opening" ceremonies for the ride in April (on the Anniversary of Animal Kingdom, but will likely have various previews of the ride in the months that preceed the actual grand opening.

I hope they are running the preview rides during Spring Break when we are there. I can't wait to ride it!!!
