Direct from Disneyland's California Adventure comes The Land's newest attraction, Soarin!
Guests are seated in one of three rows and hoisted high into the air, in front is the giant IMAX screen which encapsulates you into believing you really will see things much as a bird might. Once 'airborne' you'll begin your journey soarin' over California, gliding past many of the golden states most picturesque and iconic locations such as San Fran's Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, Palm Springs and even Disneyland!
But that’s not all, a steady breeze, gentle movements and amazingly, scents from some of the places you'll pass by (pine forests, orange groves) all combine to fully create the illusion of flight and immerse the rider into the projected surroundings.

Tips & Fun Facts

Get there early or grab a fastpass as crowds tend to build quickly and wait times can be long throughout the day. Be aware thought that fastpasses can run out before lunchtime so if its a must do, make it one of your first stops.
If you don't mind your group being split up, try the single rider line for a shorter wait.
