This ride is nice for relaxation, not only do you have the thrill of "soaring" around the world, but you also get to have a relaxing ride as well!

Personally, I like this better when it was Soarin over California and Soarin over the world was only at Disney World. But it's still a great ride.

Our kids love Soarin', so we rode it twice whilst in DCA. Try and get on the front row, for a better view, if you can!

I like the attraction, my wife loves it. We hadn't been to the park in 15 years and then this was Soarin' Over California. Not sure why they changed it, after all, it is California Adventure. Aside from that, we still enjoyed the flight. To...More
