I agree. I was very happy that I saw Soarin' multiple on my last trip including one that only had a 10 to 15 minute waiting time.It will be interesting to see. I was hoping to catch Soarin one more time before the closure as I haven't ridden since 2012 and we arrive January 5th for marathon weekend.
I did notice on my last trip WDW that Test Track didn't always open at 9:00, but opened later in the day. That could screw up Epcot before World Showcase opens up at 11:00 without counting International Gateway, the France Bakery, and the Akershus Royal Banquet.
