AdventureHello everyone!

This week I have found myself feeling very nostalgic and missing the California sunshine I was blessed to have for 12 years of my life.

Whenever I daydream about California, I never hesitate to think about one of my favorite rides at Walt Disney World®.

Can anyone guess it?…….Soarin’®!

This ride is a must-do when you are at Epcot® because as a California native, it truly captures the essence of the state and what it has to offer. Not to mention, flying on a hang glider is pretty cool.

My tip this week is for guests who enjoy a thrill on a ride and for those who do not enjoy it so much:

Once you get through the queue on Soarin’®, a Cast Member will ask you, “How many people are in your party?” They will then place you in a specific row that represents your seat once you enter the theater where the hang gliders are located.soarin

At this moment, if you are a thrill seeker like me, request a number ending in “1” (A-1, B-1, C-1). There are three rows of hang gliders and rows ending in “1” will place you at the very top when you take flight.

For those of you who are not so fond of heights, ask for a row ending in “3” (A-3, B-3, C-3) and you will be placed closest to the ground.

Happy flying everyone!

    I love riding Soarin’ first thing in the morning, asking for row 1, and then having a great breakfast at Sunshine Seasons!

    I am NOT a thrill seeker and was quite nervous about riding Soarin’ but my daughter talked me into it. After the CM asked how many in our party we were quickly directed to the front row…great…just what I didn’t want.

    I spent most of the attraction with my eyes closed only to open them occasionally to try to catch the hidden Mickey on the golf ball.

    I have to admit that I enjoyed the attraction, looking back I don’t know what I was afraid of and am looking forward to trying Soarin’ (this time with my eyes open) on my next visit.
