Hmmm... perhaps it could be that trips to WDW now require so much advance planning that knowing a ride opening date matters? ADRs at 180 days, FP+ at 60 days, party tickets for sale 6 months in advance, room discounts 6-9 months out.
Are people really planning a trip just for opening day of this ride? (No snark, sincere question).

Link please.
There’s whispers that this attraction could be quite delayed. Was an official date ever released?
No April fool.
Martin's post from 4 pages ago saying how the attraction will could be quite delayed. The next couple pages are filled with people wondering when the actual opening date of the attraction was supposed to be, with everyone coming to the consensus that Disney had said Fall 2019.

Maybe not opening day but for a lot of people that don’t go often, they may want to plan around the most new things they can get. Since there is no real indication of when, all they can do currently is guess and hope, or try to push back a trip. There being no real info at all isn’t helpful to somebody that is looking forward to it. Even the annual trip people may be upset if they wind up missing it by a day or two when they could’ve shifted had they known.

For myself, I’m definitely waiting on an opening day so I can try to head down either for a preview or sometime around open, which depending on timing could be primarily for this one ride. Actual opening day isn’t important for this one, unlike Star Wars, but I would like to be there relatively close to open. I really want to see what they replaced one of my favorite rides with.

Makes sense. But since we’ve never had an actual opening day, why the angst suddenly? Because people assumed it would open early?

When did they announce the official opening date of TSL? And weren’t FP less than 60 days?

People made assumptions based on the only info floating around, which wasn’t official, that are looking like could be wrong. Same reason a lot of people that were trying to avoid Star Wars got upset when it was announced to open earlier than what was generally expected. They gambled their trip dates and didn’t get what they had planned for.

Some may be. I think it might be more of principle: if guests are now expected to plan so far in advance, why can't Disney provide needed info further in advance. This goes beyond just a ride open date. It also includes EMH, EMM, etc.

Personally, I don't plan trips based on any ride availability. Even this year as the first year with AP, we planned based on our calendar and also three events we had not done before: Flower & Garden, Food & Wine, MNSSHP. We booked hotels before knowing any ride open dates. But... I did book Pop for December anticipating that the skyliner should be open by then.

February 16, well in advance of the June 30 opening

Blog mickey saying "sources" telling them this may be pushed to 2020
This is precisely why everyone was worried since they haven’t said anything.

@marni1971 I get the feeling you can’t explicitly tell us but do you know the timeframe? Can you verify this 2020 rumor?

This would really suck I’m going in January 2020 with the hopes of doing everything new (including MMRR) I’m really hoping it opens.
