Return to Future World West Attractions


The Story: Congratulations! You have received a boarding pass to fly over California. Well, fly might not be the right word. I guess you received a boarding pass to soar over California. During your trip you'll soar over San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Malibu, Disneyland, and several other places.

Height Restriction: 40 inches (Nice Work Pal!)
Attraction Length: 4 minutes and 50 seconds
Fastpass? YES!

The History: The attraction originally opened with Disney's California Adventure on February 8, 2001 as Soarin' Over California. When the Disney parks around the world were getting ready to celebrate the 50th year of Disney parks, each park received a new attraction or show from a different park in the world. Epcot received Soarin' Over California, but decided to get rid of the Over California and simply name it Soarin'.

Soarin' opened in The Land pavilion at Epcot on May 5, 2005.

Fun Facts: Your flight number is 5505 in honor of the attractions opening on May 5, 2005.

Location: The Land Pavilion.

Touring Tips: Make sure you get a Fastpass for Soarin' first thing in the morning! The standby line is usually around an hour long, so Fastpass is definitely the way to go for this attraction!
