I'm sure you won't miss anything as long as you check the forums semi-frequently. I check in the morning and again at night (might be more often then needed, but it doesn't hurt) so I know I don't need to worry about missing a huge announcement.
Don't quote me on this because I could be wrong, but I think I remember someone posting that an announcement would be made about when hotel reservations would be open within 24 hours of the staff knowing the exact date? Again, I could be wrong about that. ^^;
