And then there were six…six days left until we leave for Disneyland!  Today we are taking a look at one of my favorite attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios — and of course, at Disney’s California Adventure park — Soarin’ Over California!

The interesting thing about this attraction is that I didn’t used to like it!  I don’t know what it was, but for some reason, the realism of it all was so incredible that it was freaking me out!  I don’t know if I had some sort of inner ear thing or what, but I really did not care for it all that much.  I would ride it, though, because I could look over and see that if I fell, I would only break a leg or something, you know, easy peasy, right?!

However, the more I rode it, the more I liked it, and I really enjoy the ride now, and can’t wait for our trips on it when we get to Disneyland!  Soarin’ Over California is a fan favorite for a lot of people, though, so FastPass tickets are a must, at least in my mind they are, but that’s okay.  It’s the only attraction in Condor Flats, but it’s not far from Grizzly River Run, so that might draw some of the crowds away from Soarin’.

What is your favorite part of Soarin’ Over California? Why not leave me a comment and let me know, and thanks!
