Active Directory disaster recovery testing.

Is there a safe way of performing disaster recovery testing in regards to Active Directory failover?

The idea would be to have domain controllers in a DR site, that we can seize Active Directory FSMO roles to test DR plans.  I know from reading (not experience) when you seize a FSMO role you cannot bring the previous holder back online.  However, in our case we would definitely want to bring the original holder online after DR testing.

I assume this is possible, but must take manual steps to achieve.  Any help is appreciated.
