Interesting. Shocked they don't seem to be doing it in stages so DHS will be open for SW:GE

And On September 30, Disney Skyliner gondolas will go down for their first maintenance problem

Seriously, this is great news. Can't wait to try them out in November.

Awww, I will miss it on my September trip by just 10 days. Maybe they will have some soft opening while I am there.

Maybe they don't think anybody will come.

Or they're waiting of the "oven" to cool a bit before putting paying guests in t them.

As much testing as they've been doing, I am really surprised it is that late. I thought they might "surprise" guests by having it open by the time Star Wars opens.

I thought so too. Iím surprised theyíre waiting until September. I guess if they arenít ready yet, they arenít ready yet.
