According to one WDW1974 Diagon Alley and gringotts should be in an operating state by memorial day weekend, perhaps for soft openings?
King Kong is…
“In an operating state”? What does that even mean? I wish people who didn’t know what they were talking about wouldn’t comment like they did.
It means the ride should be ready for soft openings and full testing phases I said it right there. Is your comment directed at me? While I don’t claim to have any insider information I merely rely what all of the insiders on differents sites tell us theme park fans. I wouldn’t say I am ill informed either, as I try my best on here to give you guys whatever I read.
It just seemed like clumsy phrasing to me, so I was confused. “in an operating state” would imply to me that the ride is physically running, not that it’s necessarily guest-ready, which is why I didn’t understand it. My comment is directed at whichever person has decided they are an “insider” and wants to pretend they have any idea about what’s going on in parks so that they can validate their existence and make themselves feel like they are important. I don’t follow your blog so I know little of your content, I’m just tired of seeing rumor mill posts show up on my dashboard, with people circulating the information like it’s real or confirmed.
That rumor guy is WDW1974 who has been handing out info like that for over 8 years, and has proven himself time and time again. I know a lot of folks don’t know him but he has released concept art, details about expansions and rides far before they are publicized! I have enough confidence to cite him as a source and so do other sites such as screamscape and micechat. But I will let his record speak for itself!
