As passholders we get to ride the new rides before they open to guest. You get a sneak peak pin each time you ride. So we were on Everest 1 hour after they opened the gates. Loved it. We still ride Everest. Check out the Toy Story ride at Disney Hollywood. The sneak peak is also to test the ride to make sure the staff know how to get people on and off the ride. Toy Story did not have a pin.
