    Soarin'

    I heard from a friend who was recently in WDW ( I know, not too reliable) who claims that a CM told him that Disney is working on some new films for the Soarin' ride. Florida (obviously, you'd think) would be one subject, but also a panorama of North America...Niagara Falls, the Rockies, NYC skyline, etc would be flown over. My question is: Is there any truth at all to this? The ride IS one of my faves, but I could see adding some different areas of the country to change things up a bit. The Soarin' ride in California Adventure is perfectly themed to it's environment, I don't see a reason the Epcot version has to be "married" to California, as wonderful as it is. Maybe they could rotate the "locations" around?

    Just tossing this out there...

    Disney already has a new video for the Soarin ride in Florida. The reason the ride wasn't named "Soarin over California" is because they are planning on making you go Soarin over the USA eventually. I heard that the new video should come out as part of Epcot's 25th anniversary next year. This I heard from CMs when the ride was in soft openings and previews.

    That would be excellent, and it does make sense since Disney is big on celebrating anniversaries. There does seem to be a lot of new attractions, and rehab of older ones, at Epcot lately.

    Indeed, this has been going around & I really hope this happens for EPCOT's 25 Anniversary this October. Soarin' is a classic in California & over here in Florida its a classic in the making because it is not yet done, so a film based on the countries here in the land of America then it will be done because to me I just feel Soarin' isn't completed with the right proper film.

    Since the first time i went on it i have always thought i needs a Florida theme. But now I think U.S.A. is much better. That is a great idea. N.Y.C. mabye some lighthouses in Maine(Hey im a new englander) flordia keys(or coast, kennady space center) Hoover dam, and a bunch of other stuff.

    A flight over the USA would be very cool or even something in Florida would be amazing. Something that we can relate to a little more than California. Anyway, I can see Disney bringing this out on Epcot's 25th Anniversary and I have no doubt that it will be amazing. I can't wait to see it.
