It is definitely interesting to see Vekoma more openly being acknowledged as the supplier for these Disney attractions... They've updated their website to officially claim some notable Disney projects as those they've worked on: https://www.vekoma.com/custom-designed-coasters.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!

100% Agree!! Tron, Everest, Dwarves, Vekoma & Disney come up with amazing concepts when they work together. I used to wish that Disney would work with other coaster manufacturers, but they've proved me wrong each and every time they open up a new ride together. I was BLOWN AWAY by Tron and I can't wait for this!
Wow that looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I was initially thinking controlled sideways turning just to point you at show scenes, ala Gringotts at UO, but the idea of pointing you backwards and forwards is really intriguing. Perhaps an enemy ship is tailing you so you're turned around backwards to face it, only to be zipped back around forward to see that you're flying right towards a meteor or something. Sounds like an incredibly immersive, 360 degree experience.

Get a fastpass for Soarin, if any are available, then hit Frozen at park opening then head to Test Track and use the single rider line or standby. There may or may not be passes available depending on when you book them but even without passes its pretty reasonable to get on the three major attraction within the first 2-3 hours if you're inside the park ready to go when it opens.
^ Thanks! I was able to get Soarin' (: , probably gonna do the Single Rider line but I'm bummed that the customization for the cars (which is my favorite thing about the ride) is dulled in the Single Rider line.
Darien Lake is my home park.

So, as I said above, I went to Walt Disney World to be in the Candlelight Processional with my school's choruses! I was able to vlog everyday (except the water parks we didn't go to, and Magic Kingdom's footage was deleted), and it was such an awesome trip!!
