We Were Right ! Bigger is Better for 2016…

In a recent post about new attractions in Orlando, we concluded that bigger is better for new Disney attractions in 2016. In the case of the Soarin attraction being updated at Epcot, this is certainly true with new larger screens, projection systems and an additional theater. Soarin Around the World is set for summer at Walt Disney World!

Epcot will update what was previously the Soarin Over California simulator attraction over the next 6 months. The new digital attraction will be called “Soarin Around the World” and will officially open in the summer of 2016. Soarin has been a very popular attraction in the Walt Disney World’s Epcot park since it was added over 10 years ago.

Instead of simply Soarin’ over California, you’ll have the opportunity to virtually fly over the entire world! Anyone who enjoyed Soarin Over California will take interest in coming back for the new Soarin Around the World  attraction. The Soarin Around the World attraction will utilize similar high tech wizardry that is being used in the Soaring Over the Horizon show at Disney Shanghai.

The History of Soarin at Disney

Soarin Over California first began at the Disneyland Resort in California. The opening was met with little fanfare. In fact, for several years the Soarin attraction did not meet company expectations in terms of guest volume. However, after slow but steady attendance increases and positive reviews, Disney opened Soarin at Walt Disney World in 2005.

With some of the changes set for Soarin Around the World, including the additional theatre, more park guests will be allowed to enjoy this show. This has been one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World in the last few years and it is terrific to see the positive changes taking place.

We will post updates on this blog about Soarin Around the World as news becomes available. If you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in the summer of 2016, be sure to check on the status and opening of Soarin Around the World.
