        As awesome as it would be I have little/no expectation of it.

          It seems like quite the long shot, but on the other hand, they did work really hard to make sure the queue looks nice in time for May 5th, so who knows.

            From what I've heard, they are done w/ the building of the ride, it's the insurance for it that is holding them back from opening it sooner. I can only imagine how expensive it would be to insure since the issue with BTMR.

              That is a VERY interesting thought CP. I never thought about that. I had always heard that Disney was self insured for the parks. But perhaps that is not the case. Interesting indeed.

              Anyone know more about this?

                I wouldn't think that Disney would need insurance. Their pockets seem big enough, especially since they rarely pay out claims. If an accident happens and the park is at fault, they pay, no questions. Can you imagine all the silly claims that would be made against them if it were otherwise? This is all just conjecture, of course.

                  And Disneyland gets petty sues enough as it is

                  Ah, I love my MouseTales books.

                  But yes, I am curious as well.

                    For dangerous rides like roller coasters I would think that insurance is a requirement in a theme park and it may be a law.
                    You have to insure your home and your car, why wouldn't you have to obtain insurance for a potentially dangerous ride?
                    They probably don't need it, but I bet they are still required to get it...

                      Here is my thought;

                      Since the ride is not being built in house, IE, The "Coaster" section of the ride was built by Vekoma, it probably needs to be insured from an outside source. Sure Disney settles claims every day, but they still have insurance.

                          Every place has insurance, if the park burnt down, they'd go to the insurance company :P

                            Dosh also needs to come in and approve the attraction before non employees can ride.

                                checking the list of the top 10 riskiest businesses to insure... nope, theme parks isn't on here. Disney has an entire dept. devoted soley to legal issues, I have no doubt they have an entire crew that works on insurance issues with the parks, the cruise line and everything else. Even the Disney Store had to have some insurance, every business does, and an environment where people are left to roam around on their own is not something you want to be in charge of without some sort of legal protection and insurance.

                                  But not everybody has liability insurance. Sure companies insure their assets, but the biggest companies are self-insured for liability issues. Then they hire good lawyers!

                                    That is what I meant to say I think disney just has good lawyers for liability purposes.

                                      The MBA school of law, tells you to settle... Always settle... Trials are PR disasters... Lawyers are expensive...

                                      The trouble recently has to do with royalty and rights issues... Disney fights to the teeth... and loses... You think they would learn...

                                      If you don't believe me look at the Katsenberg V Disney trial...

                                        well, CH- read Mousetales- Disney only settles if they know they are at fault. There were several high profile trials in the 80's where Disney went to court and won. If it can be attributed to guest negligence in any way, they are not at fault and do not have to pay. They would go bankrupt if they settled everything.

                                        Granted, this has to do strictly with in-park liability issues. From the business standpoint- that is a ENTIRELY different ball of wax
