I was able to preview this ride when I was down last week. It is the most incredible ride that Disney has come up with. I cannot believe how realistic this attraction is. If you go, you must go on this. I can assure you that there will be nothing like it in the world (except the real thing). It is worth any amount of waiting that you may encounter. Have fun and let me know what you thought about it.

I could smack myself in the head....I went to Epcot for the day a few weeks ago with my parents and mine and my sister's boyfriends....and my Dad was talking about riding Soarin' all the night before. The first thing we had to do according to him was go see if was open and ride it. I am a HUGE chicken about rides, I get sick easily from almost anything, including simulators, and I'm always nervous to ride something new especially if it has warnings. I saw the warning about "simulated drops" and "heart conditions" so I let the rest of them ride and tell me if I "could do it" and it was awesome, not the least bit scary or stomach dropping. They said I could but didn't want to go again right away, and the chance never came for me to ride later. Oh well. Maybe next time!
Man.. what an awesome ride! I want to point out smoe flaws in it (like ability to see outside of the screen and a mass of people) but there's no point really.. I mean.. to put it in a nut shell, I lifted my feet thinking I'd really hit a wave!
We were there in time to follow the CMs (kind of like cattle) to The Land first thing in the morning, and rode it once, got a FP, rode The Land (huge lemons) and used our FP in under an hour! I love it!
up to Soarin'!
i loved soarin! we were there in may and practically walked right on...my mom is terrified of heights and we made her try it....she was a little nervous at first when we lifted off the ground but once she realized that you don't drop or do anything scary and are strapped in she started to enjoy it...once we got off the ride my mom just kept saying how awesome and fun it was!

It is a great ride and the lines prove it. During an EMH night the line was 3 hours long and fastpasses for it were gone in about 15 minutes. During the day in peak times the wait was about 2 hours and fastpasses are gone by 2:00 PM. The lines really do show how great it is though. It is by far the best ride in Epoct now.
I loved it. The part I loved the most was the jets flying by in formation. Also how the fireworks push you back at the end. Great ride.
Definitely my favorite new attraction! Our 5 year old loved it and we cannot wait to go back! Soarin' will from now on be our first stop at Epcot! It's a must try for everyone!
I loved it! I (like Tampa) kept trying to get my bare feet wet on a wave. I was also distracted by the feet hanging in front of me if I looked up, but I just tried to keep my attention towards the middle of the screen. I can't wait to ride it again in August!

I rode Soarin' six times during our most recent WDW vacation. I got to experience it from all three rows and from all three sections (left, middle, right). I can't say that there is truly a bad seat in the house. My only complaints are that the film is already showing some signs of damage and the scenes through downtown Los Angeles are very jerky. But all things aside, Soarin' is my new favorite WDW attraction.
We did manage to ride it 3 times before noon one day. Our technique was:
1. Get to Epcot for the "rope drop" at 9AM
2. Run to Soarin' and grab FastPasses (ours were for 9:51AM)
3. Ride Soarin' in standby queue (15 minutes)
4. Hang around The Land until 9:51AM
5. Get more Soarin' FastPasses (time 11:30AM)
6. Ride Soarin' using 9:51 FastPasses
7. Come back at 11:30AM and use the 2nd set of FastPasses
A bit commando, but it worked for us.
Hey, I use the same method to get all my ToT rides in the morning. It does work.
