PrincessSharon got to do a soft opening of it recently and described it pretty well in her recent trip report:

About midway down the post, she starts talking about the AIE.

I really enjoyed Sharon's review.

In front of the beautiful Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City as part of our Bagman Days trip, which starts with north eastern America and eastern Canada. The trip report continues for our Baltic cruise.

My BFF just returned from WDW last week and she loved AIE. Thought it was great. And, bless her heart, she is not the most positive person on the planet so when she says something is great I believe her.
