    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    WOW!

    Astonishing video!

    Where did this come from? I didn't see any information with it when I played it back on my iMac.

    I absolutely love it. The flyover of Horseshoe Falls was beautiful.

    I will also add that the music would need to be changed a bit. Definitely not on the same level as the current soundtrack.

    It's only around 30 seconds longer than the current film.

    I think what you're really getting at, and I agree, is that there are more "slow" scenes in it.

    I'm not sure it would be a problem, but I did notice it.

    Re: A new Epcot Soarin proposition

    When I was watching I was thinking more the premise Disney could easily do this for Soarin FL instead of duplicating Cali's, but film their own with the best of the best scenery from the United States. And yes I agree, a bit more dramatic filming with a better soundtrack. I just liked the idea of a fresh film, highlighting US for Soarin bonus different from Cali.

    I saw it on a blog I believe, when I trip over it again I can link it.

    Re: A new Epcot Soarin proposition

    Soarin is my favorite ride at Epcot and my second favorite next to the Monorail. I haven't watch the video yet, but I like the idea of some fresh scenery from the U.S. and of course, Florida too and our Magic Kingdom. I wish the ride were a bit longer and on a few occasions when we were some of the last guests at night, they let us ride twice (Thanks Soarin CMs). I haven't got to ride it as frequently as we go because I don't want to wait 2 hours and FPs are always gone by the time we get to the park, but the last time we went we waited the 2 hours, I don't know why we did that.

    Okay, I just watched the video, that was great. Maybe when they shoot the moon seen include Peter Pan.
    Also, aside from all the sites in the video, definitely fly over WDW, the EPCOT Earth, maybe along side the monorail, DHS. But, interesting, maybe WDW will do something like this. Love Soarin!

    My family and I love Soarin' but this has been my cry since we first rode it. I understood when it first came in to Epcot but it's been there long enough that it should have it's own film for WDW

    Yeah, I agree. It is a film not a $40 Mil alteration. I enjoy Soarin, but this is one of those film type attractions that tends to get stale. It also gets lost in the illusion that it is extremely popular, which I don't deny but the extreme gets lost in the reality that it has a very low guest load capacity per hour, thus the nasty lines.

    A change over to a new film shouldn't take very long. Even with the operating program for the chair lifts that would have to accompany the change.
