    Does anybody know how soft opening work here in China? Any chance of weekday testings for a few lucky guests?

    I'm still taking the July 15 opening for the new land with a grain of salt, since that's the way things work here on the mainland...

My sisters and I will keep our broomsticks crossed for you in the hopes that you get to ride Grizzly Mine Train ahead of it official opening so that you can come back here and tell us what it was like!!!

I guess there's probably a chance that it would be open early, but I wouldn't bank on it, even in the US.
