It sounds like a fair characterization of the major new attractions is something like:
  • Remy - Fall 2020
  • Guardians - Spring/Summer 2021
  • Tron - Summer/Fall 2021
  • Play! -Fall/Winter 2021 or early 2022
Is that fair?
There will also be a Splash Mountain redo but given that they haven't even closed it yet I think we can assume it's not coming out by 2021?

Looks like 2022 will be the year to go. We've booked our December 2020 trip already, but we've decided 2021 DVC points are to Aulani, with a few trips to DL since we're in SoCal for the next couple years.

I’m not sure I’d call that a new attraction. From what I’ve gathered on their progress to date, I’m not sure it will even close in 2021 let alone reopen.

I pray they will have a single rider line like the Shanghai version does. Absolutely HUGE!!
Single rider on a ride that only has 2 per row isn’t that valuable for operations. A better method is to group even and odd numbered groups like they do for 7DMT.

Yes I know Everest has single rider.

Is that fair?
What about Harmonius? Add that and I would be happy since we are bumping our trip to Dec 2021.

It was working quite well in Shanghai. And the 7DMT line can get backed up hours so I'm not sure the even/odd methodology works well. If 1 person is solo and wants to ride, I'm not sure it makes sense for them to wait 2+ hours.

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think they will close Splash Mountain until Tron opens up first to at least compensate the closure of Splash which I think would be for a year or more.
