Soarin’ is one of the most popular attractions at Epcot, in fact, in all of Walt Disney World. The attraction has a huge stand by line, and wait times exceed 60 or 90 minutes and even longer, so a FastPass+ selection is imperative if you want to ride later in the day.
For the longest time, I was extremely tentative when it came to riding Soarin’ — the movie is so realistic, it really does feel to me like I’m hundreds of feet up in the air when I ride, and for whatever reason, it kind of freaked me out. However, I did myself a favor and I was seated at the end of a row, and I looked down during the ride and saw that it wasn’t as far as I was afraid it was, so I figured it would be okay. I know it sounds like a crazy kind of logic, but that’s the way my mind worked.
Now, though, I love to ride Soarin’. I’ve been fortunate to ride it both at Walt Disney World and at Disney’s California Adventure Park, and while the ride was the same, the line at the time for DCA was much shorter it seemed to me. Of course, Soarin’ has been redone — instead of Soarin’ Over California, it is now called Soarin’ Over the World, and as a result, the change in the movie has led to insanely long lines — as much as 300 minutes or longer at times! So far I haven’t seen the ride in person, having not been at any of the parks, but I look forward to the date that changes!
I guess when it comes to Soarin’ I don’t think I have a favorite #DisneyMemory. However, I do like that I’ve been able to enjoy the ride, and ride it from the very top section. That adds a thrill to the ride because it is so high up. Soarin’, though, is at the very top of my wife’s list of favorite attractions, and I’m glad that I am able to ride it with her when we go. It’s a lot of fun, and that simple #DisneyMemory is just being able to enjoy Disney with my family when we do go.
So please tell me, what is your favorite #DisneyMemory from Soarin’? Please let us know in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by!
