From Disney Writer Victoria Lim:

Imagine a wind-through-your-hair flight above The Great Wall of China, a bird’s-eye view of the Sydney Harbor in Australia, gliding around the Matterhorn in Switzerland …

These are among more than a dozen breathtaking ways you’ll be able to experience the wonders of the world when Soarin’ Around the World makes its groundbreaking debut across the globe this summer. The next generation of the popular Soarin’ attraction makes its premiere at the grand opening of Shanghai Disneyland June 16, 2016 as Soarin’ Over the Horizon.

The next day on June 17, guests at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort and Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort will be able to board the exhilarating aerial adventure that immerses you in a multi-sensory experience, complete with stunning sights, spectacular sounds and even subtle scents. Guests can begin making Fastpass+ for Soarin’ beginning Thursday, April 21.

With Soarin’ Around the World, guests will fly over both natural and man-made attractions such as The Great Wall of China and the plains of Africa. There is no word on how long the new film will be. As previously announced, a third theater will also be added at Epcot to cut down on wait times. The updated ride will totally replace the current film, guests will not be able to choose the California version. There has been no announcement on what music will accompany the new film.

Soarin’ over California opened on February 8, 2001 at Disney California Adventure. The Epcot version opened as Soarin’ on May 5, 2005 as part of the Happiest Celebration on Earth. The current ride takes guests high above several scenes in California, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley, and Disneyland Park. Before the ride there is a film in which Chief Flight Attendant Patrick (Patrick Warburton) gives instructions. There is no word on whether or not Warburton will update the instructional film for Soarin’ Around the World.

About Rick Killingsworth

Rick visited the Magic Kingdom in 1971 for the first Christmas parade in their history. At nine years old, he was bitten by the Disney Bug. He can still remember the sights, the smells, and the sounds. It truly was magical. It would be twenty years before he could afford to take his young family back to “The World.” It was the vacation of a lifetime, and they have been fortunate to go hundreds of times since. His daughters, now grown, still tear up when they see the castle (as does he).
