Any updates on when the FL version of Soarin might debut? I can't imagine it would require much lead time, but there still is no official announcement yet...right?

I didn't know they were doing a Florida one. I know they have been rumors about doing an around the world soarin at both parks.

They have finished the filming but there's no announcement on when it will be released. There's a good bit of internal discussion right now about redoing the theaters and expanding it before putting in the new film. It's not just Florida, though. It's going to be Soarin around the World.

Thank goodness it's not just Florida. I love Florida, but yeah, not enough there to support something like this, IMO.

I agree- my heart sank a little when I saw the Soarin over FL. That would not be a good change.

I am hearing they aren't going to expand Soarin'. Why spend money on something successful, when they have other attractions that need a lot of attention?

Makes sense to me. I can't see them changing something successful that consistently has a 60+ minute wait all day in a park where there are really only 2 attractions that bring in that type of draw. They have a lot bigger fish to fry in EPCOT...

With the way they love to shoehorn characters where they don't belong, I'm surprised they didn't decide to retheme Soarin to Planes...

I love "armchair" traveling, and can't wait to see the new film they have in store! I open to whatever they do!

Will it be more like Star Wars where there are multiple scenarios?

No. Just an updated movie.

LOL!

I'm still not sure why Soarin' gets the love it gets. I think it's a total bore...and to wait that long for it? Ridiculous.

Don't jest! In California, the loop shown at the boarding gate does contain characters from Planes 2

For me, the music is fantastic... But this ride is a once or twice and I've had enough kind of attraction... Yea, nice the first time, OK the second, and why did I waste my time the third time...

But, with a park with little good things to do, Soarin's wait times are over inflated... Fix Imagination, fix Energy, do something worth while with Wonders of Life, and you'll see the demand for Test Track and Soarin decrease... But no, that would be the common sense thing to do.. Instead, they are looking to build a new theater, as if that would solve all of Epcot's woes... And there are many...

I was there twice yesterday. "Planes" was not a part of the pre-show video loop. But it was in California in June.

I was at WDW last week, and didn't see any planes. Funny, i was in DCA in May and must have just missed it.

That being said, I'm surprised they aren't inserting some Frozen into it, as they have everything else.

I'll just be glad the video will be HD/crisp, and not have the "static" with the older tech.

A new search for hidden mickeys!

I was there in October of last year, and the characters were part of the pre-show loop... So, unless they removed them since, they were there...

No. Just an updated movie.

We went on the Undiscovered Future World tour and our guide (of 25 years a CM) said the new movie was digital (so no more "dust specs" floating) and would be able to do different scenarios pulling from all the footage taken. Also said they plan on building 2 more theaters because they underestimated the popularity of it.

That is in discussion, certainly. It remains to be seen if they greenlight the money for it with so many other projects needing attention and all the money they're throwing at Frozen Norway.

Maybe the planes thing was only there for the movie releases or something. But I was there last sept, and last week. No planes.

That being said, I'd be thankful for any insert other than Frozen.

I hope the new digital version and increase in capacity is true.

Thanks for the clarification Chris! Trust the intercot powers that be to be in the know! Don't ever want John saying, "I told you so!":mickey:

Hopefully the update will contain all new smells. Soarin isn't the greatest ride but smells and music made it for me. Other attractions definitely need more help, but an update to a film that desperately needs an update is good enough for me.

Just hopefully not any Stitch type smells. :)
