“Soarin’ Over California” (2005) -- The popular “Soarin’ Over California” attraction at Disney’s California Adventure will take Epcot guests on an eye-filling journey above the wondrous Golden State. The unforgettable experience combines cinematic artistry and state-of-the-art motion base technology. Guests are literally lifted 40 feet inside a giant projection screen dome and completely surrounded with the beauty and wonder of the state of California. The free-flight experience intensifies as guests feel the sweeping winds and smell fragrant orange blossoms and pine trees around them. “Soarin’ Over California” will be located in The Land pavilion.

Where exactly at the Land pavillion are they placing it? It seems to me that they were a little cramped for space between it and the Imagination pavillion weren't they?

And is the projection system anything like the projection that they used over at the old Horizons pavillion, just to give me an idea of what you are talking about?

There is lots of land in between the Land and Imagination buildings because the lots are pie-shaped: as you go back deeper the width increases.

The entrance to this new Soarin' attraction will actually be inside the Land building on the first floor -- towards the left as you enter the building. You know, right where Food Rocks currently is.

Yup... better get your fill of Food Rocks while you can (if it hasn't closed already) because Food Rocks is rollin' out of there to make way for the Soarin' entrance and queue area.

The projection system that will be used for Soarin' will be much better than the old large-screen movie in the defunct Horizons attraction. Plus, just like at Disney's Calfornia Adventure and its version of Soarin', many rows of Guests will be "flown" up high, each horizonatal row moving up to be one row atop another to view the giant-screen fly-over movie.

I'm looking forward to it coming to Epcot -- but on the other hand when it opens that is one less "must-see" thing to do at DCA the next time I get out there.

The so-far unconfirmed date of January 3, 2004 is when Food Rocks in the Land at Epcot will close. The attraction will be removed to create access to the new Soarin' Over California attraction now under construction in between The Land and Imagination pavillions.

The date has now been confirmed: Epcot's "Food Rocks" in The Land will close January 3, 2004. In its place will be the entrance and queue area for the new Soarin' Over California attraction.

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Here's an overhead photo of Epcot with the construction area of Soarin' highlighted.

Look in the upper right of the picture where the red dotted line and the highlighting is to see the location of the Soarin' building, located between The Land and Imagination.
