Disney will be recruiting the opening team cast members in mid-November 2005. The opening team will be responsible for cycling the attraction during the test and adjust period, and preparing for operational duties once Imagineering hand over the attraction. The assignment of an opening team is one of the major steps needed prior to any soft openings. The latest information seems to suggest that WDI and the opening team may be riding in December 2005, with an outside chance of guest testing in December 2005, with more wide-scale soft openings taking place in January 2006, leading to a full official opening in Spring 2006.
