The place will look spectacular in the closing hours of the evening, so..... a night time visit? :)
Yeah, I'm hoping it'll pull some of the crowds away, that Midway Mania and Tower get, all the time.

I still miss Tot's single rider line. I only ever saw it on the park map once and that was back in Feb 2012. It was one less fast-pass to plan for back then.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

wow, this version of Soarin looks amazing.

so nice that Tokyo parks get the unique versions. . . and hope that if they take off, someday USA parks will get a version of them. But until then, even more reasons to make a trip to DisneySea (as if there weren't enough already!).

^ .... and Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland, too. Make it a Disney Asia Adventure! :wink:

(I am hoping we can pull some kind of crazy amazing trip like this off, by the time Nov.2025 rolls around.)

I'm curious as to what the new scene(s) will be. One of the nice things about the current ride film is that the last scene is based on the ride location, so at the very least guests will probably fly back into the Tokyo Disney resort.

Considering that the story describes that they can fly "into the future", I'd bet that most of the modern-day scenes (like Sydney and Paris) will remain.

^ http://www.tdrexplorer.com explains....

Soaring: Fantastic Flight takes guests on a flight around the world, visiting famous landmarks and areas of natural beauty. The latest announcement confirms that this version will have a scene unique to Tokyo Disney Resort. While the new poster features the Pyramids, Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.

This is a huge launch for Tokyo DisneySea and the ride could prove as popular as Toy Story Mania! Luckily, this will be a FastPass attraction and is included in the “Happy 15” early entry for Disney Hotel guests.

Soaring: Fantastic Flight will have two theatres and the main ride time will be 5 minutes, with a capacity of 87 people per ride. Guests under 102cm will be unable to ride.

Location and Story (Spoilers!):

Soaring: Fantastic Flight is located in the Museum of Fantastic Flight on the Mediterranean Harbor Hill. The new area celebrates the wonders of flight and the life of Camellia Falco, a woman passionate about flying and exploration.

Guests will tour the museum and visit a gallery honoring Camellia’s achievements. Here they will encounter Camelia’s spirit and hear about her inventions. From there, guests board Camellia’s flying invention “the Dream Flyer” and through the power of imagination travel into the future and around the world!

This story fits so well with DisneySea’s themes of exploration and invention and we cannot wait to experience it. Maybe Camellia might turn out to be a secret member of S.E.A.

Edit: It’s been confirmed that Camellia Falco is a member of S.E.A., as seen in an exhibit in Tropical Hideaway at Disneyland Resort.

The story also gives the attraction a unique twist which will make it stand out from the other Soarin’ rides in Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World and Shanghai Disneyland.

^ When I said "scenes" I was talking more about the ride film itself, and if "a scene unique to Tokyo Disney Resort" is correct then they're probably just changing the ending like they did for EPCOT.

The queue, on the other hand? Yes, that certainly looks gorgeous, as per the usual standard.

^ Understood. And I agree about that "new scene".
Probably flying over the Resort itself, before "landing." :smile:

I also note, that since (probably) over 80% (?) of the locals
who see this attraction, will have never seen the DCA or EPCOT one.

And that's okay. (SPOILER!)



To see the Eiffel Tower again, like I saw it in DCA....mmmmm yes.

I can understand why KT is interested. The theming sounds pretty cool (leave it to DisneySea).
