This will be a fun one to watch! When the stories came out about the little floor dots diasappearing, and most of the preshow plexi, on Rise, it was a little jarring, tbh. Some of that reaction is admittedly some level of conditioning stress. Every little bit of normal makes me happy for the overall situation! Then, the Frozen and FotLK seating arrangement hit my radar, and I was like "Whoa!"

FWIW, the preshow/holding for Mission:Space was running with distancing in November (our most recent trip). One party per pod/shuttle, so my son and I had a lot of autopilot assistance. Also, MF:SR didn't have the traditional Hondo scene running, but I think that had more to do with the lower line moving quickly. No time to really run it. The chess room (not really a scene/show) was open for quick photos.

You are correct on Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, pre-show is still not operating.

For Smuggler's Run the pre-show is running, but you are not held in the room you just pass through.

Haunted mansion is still walkthrough of the stretching room.

Also, I know it is perhaps a little different than the premise of this thread, but I think we could add the A Pirates' Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas and the Ducktales replacement for Agent P to the list of not opened stuff. I'm hoping that they might open sometime soon.

Do you just walk right through (i.e. no spiel) or is the Ghost Host talking and you just hear part of it? Also, are the pictures in their benign or their more sinister forms?
Sinister (the room is “stretched”). I don’t recall hearing the Host directing you through.

Also, without the stretch rooms and atrium preshow, it’s not enough time to adjust your eyes to the dark before boarding. If you actually want to see the rooms prior to the ballroom I highly suggest employing the “pirate method” the moment you decide the HM is your next attraction. Simply close one of your eyes and keep it shut until you are still in the mansion. You will not believe how much of a difference this makes. It also feels bizarre for a few minutes because the eye you didn’t close will seem incredibly dim for about half the ride.

Are we tracking "spontaneous shows" like Citizens of Hollywood and the cops and magician? Or, is that stuff gone forever now?

I believe there are no more storm trooper marches through the main walk of HS. Is that correct?

I personally wasn't, because there's already a lot to keep up with. But I don't mind adding them in a streetmosphere category if people report them here as I don't consider them to be off topic.

Couple notes-

ROTR is running as original but is with distancing markers. You have to stand on your same color in both pre shows, and are assigned a new color to stand on prior to the attraction load (in a certain room). None of this existed prior to covid.

FoP is running a modified, shortened show. You either view it in the first pre show room or the second, but everyone is watching the same thing at the same time. No more "move around a bit" and avatar linking portion of the show.
