    I wondered about that! I was at AK at 9am this morning and wondered where the huge queues were! It was much better :)

    What we've seen for opening at AK involves CMs with animals and different characters like Rafiki coming out to great the crowd as they open the park. Lately we've been let in only to get to a rope in front of the Tree of Life.

    There are lots of videos spreading over several years and file91e had seen it several times. Guess its something that is easily missed
