Since opening day of Disney California Adventure in 2001, guests have been enjoying the immersive flight simulator attraction “Soarin’ Over California,” and it proved so popular that within a few years a clone of the ride debuted in The Land pavilion at EPCOT in Walt Disney World.

Now, for the first time in its history, Soarin’ is getting a major overhaul: an entirely new large-format film has been shot for the attraction, incorporating landmarks from across the entire globe rather than focusing exclusively on the vistas of California.

I was fortunate enough to speak with Walt Disney Imagineer Marie Colabelli about what guests can expect from the newly-rebranded “Soarin’ Around the World” experience at the Disneyland Resort.


Soarin’ Around the World” opens June 17th at both Disney California Adventure and EPCOT.
