  1. So excited, that’s the week of my trip! My little boy will be thrilled.
    Do you think there will be a FP+ option?

  2. Ugh so sad, my trip ends The 30th… That would be my luck. But here’s to hoping it’s still great for everyone who’s going at that time.

    1. I’m taking my twins for their 5 year birthday and we are leaving the 27th. I pray there will be a soft opening the week before.

  3. Gah! I’ve been waiting for this! KaChow! I can’t wait to see it! Do you think there will be any adult merchandise for it???
