Ride Review: Soarin'

One of my families "Must Do" rides is Soarin'. I will admit it is not MY favorite ride, but I go along with everyone else, or as the say, I do it for the kids! Soarin' takes you on a 4 minute hang gliding ride over the great state of California, whizzing over sites such as The Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley, Yosemite National Park and a surprise visit over Disneyland during the Holiday Nighttime Fireworks Spectacular! You will also get an up close look at the PGA golf tournament, when a ball appears to be hit right at you, be sure to keep your eyes open to spot the Hidden Mickey. Soarin' is considered to be a multi-sensory ride. You will feel the wind, see the sites up close on a panoramic 180^ screen and smell the fresh pines and orange groves. There are height restrictions of 40' or taller, as you feet dangle freely when your seat rises 40 feet into the air. Soarin' is located in the Land Pavilion at Epcot theme park, next to the Living with the Land ride. The queue and attraction are both indoors. Arriving early or choosing the FastPass option are highly recommended. Sometimes you even have to arrive early to get the FastPass option!
