    Question Soarin' Over CA (Epcot)

    I have heard rumors that after the 50th celebration Epcot may change the video for Soarin'. Does anyone know anything about this?

    It has been rumored that they will change the ride video to FL or all over America. I haven't anything more about it though.
    See YOU at Disney World,

    No plans to change Soarin' at this time. But remember it is just called Soarin' (at Epcot) because your destination currently is California, you never know where tomorrow's flight may go.

    They should show places all over Disney. Like flying over the castle or on top of the Epcot ball. I think that would be awesome!

    That site was great. It would make a lot more sense to do Soarin' over Florida at Epcot.

    They must be saving money by doing soarin' over CA than over FL. But this ride can be copied for almost every theme park and be different in each one. I would love to do soarin over Japan or Paris.

    I remember being extremely disappointed back in the day when mission to mars blasted off right? Well... where was the Epcot golfball?! Or anything Disney on the lower screen?! That was a jab in my adolescent kidney! C'mon now imagineers, details...

    Man if Soarin' goes over the golfball or Cindy's crib, they'll have to stop the ride because I will pee my pants! -Tampa

    Have to admit soar'in over WDW would be great but I rode it at DL and this ride is phenomonal. We loved and waited 30 min at end of day to ride it again.

    i think it was said in other posts, but how long did everyone have to wait in line for soarin? is the fastpass the way to go for this ride or is there a "less" crowded time to check it out..any info would be great, since i will be there next week!!

    Hey everyone, now it's just a rumor, but somewhat accurate you could say. Somewhere around 2007 (whose evers anniversary it will be) There are plans to update the film to go all around the world thusley the name soarin and not soarin over america.
    Well I'll be hoho, It's the Blue Fairy
