Beginning on October 12th, 2012 guests were allowed access to Gaston's Tavern, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, and Bonjour! Village Gifts. Disney described this as a Dress Rehearsal, and all guests were allowed to enter the area. The area was open from 10 AM - 6 PM and these dates pre-dated the Cast Member and Annual Passholder previews, as well as the announced soft opening date of November 19th.
