Do you think the new interactive design feature will extend, lessen or keep the same wait times as before the refurb....?

How Tron-ish is it in practice?

I got the idea that the Tron "feel" was more an effect of the concept art [especially given that they tried very specifically to say it's not Tron].

That was her opinion. I'm withholding judgement until I get to ride it this December. I'm a huge TT fan and am glad they did the refurb. I'm also excited about the futuristic styling of the interior.

I don't know how I'm going to ride it without the previous narration running through my head.

I could see this being the reaction of people expecting a huge difference in the ride, much like people expected to be blown away with the Space Mountain refurb a few years ago. Look, they are not going to change the track and the car will do almost exactly what it did before. Only difference is the changed theming. Meaning they painted some interiors and put up some new decorations. They also slapped some new paint jobs on the old cars. Not that much is going to actually change.
I think most people are just excited to be able to ride it again. I know when I was there in 2009 I was thinking it was a little outdated, especially the pre-ride movie, so I'm sure people are glad it's getting a little love. We'll just have to all judge for ourselves soon!

The interactive design section replaced the preshow movie - so timing there is identical. The only group that by passed the movie were the single riders, so the wait may be longer for that group

Will single riders be able to design their own car if they choose to bypass the single rider line?

Do you mean if they choose to bypass the main standby line?

no I mean if I'm a single rider and I choose to go into the main standby line instead of the single rider line, will I be allowed to design a car? I assume yes but I'm curious anyway. I know it's unlikely that the single rider line will feature the 'design your car' thing.

I fail to see why anyone in the main queue would be denied the ability to design their car, no matter how many in their party.

I recall watching the movie, many times , in the single line. No?
