    I'm hearing reports that AI is open today, January 7 to the public. I can't make it down to confirm myself.

    And I thought I'd miss it when I'm there in 2.5 weeks. Cool.

      Today was the last day of the Cast Preview, so they were still checking ID on the way in. I believe the soft open is imminent, though -- perhaps as early as tomorrow.

        More info: may have been CM-testing today after all. I'm hearing conflicting things. Even if CM-testing, there may be soft opening for the general public by this weekend or next week.

          The CMs for this sow were out by the theater in the mid-afternoon hours, sporting their new costumes. Will have to admit, the costumes are as bland as they can be. Navy blazers are so overrated and overused.

            What makes it worse is that it's the exact same blazer that Guest Relations wears in cold weather. The D-logo buttons and everything. They just put an American Idol logo pin where the Guest Relations D-pin usually goes. Their whole costume is made up of pieces of other costumes. It's really lame.

            The show itself, on the other hand, is great. Lots of fun.

                  The day after TDLfan and I get together in grass skirts on stage singing "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts"? :yea:

                  Wait no on second thought, My singing would probably get us both banned for life... :blush:

                      Agreed, I demand to see this in youtube so that I can permanently destroy my vision.

                              That set is amazing! The one part of the attraction where the concept art actually matched the real thing!

                              Great pictures.

                                they should offer paid trips to WDW to winners to return for 'championship' rounds.. that would get people to compete...

                                      I will reserve my opinion on this show until I see it. But honestly? I am not moved to run off to DHS just to see this.

                                        lol neither am I, but I equate putting in such an attraction with, say, putting in a Finding Nemo ride now. I don't plan on truly bashing it until I've witnessed it first hand, but it still seems like a bit of a desperate idea.
