The Disneyland Resort announced today that it will extend the return of Soarin' Over California another two months, through August 31, 2019.
Disney brought back the original version of Soarin' to Disney California Adventure this month, with plans to keep it through June 30. But fans demanded an extended run and now Disney is responding... at least through the end of the summer.
In a recent vote, 52% of Theme Park Insider readers who responded said that they thought DCA should run Soarin' Over California on a permanent basis, while another 43% of respondents said that the California version should rotate with the Soarin' Over the World production that initially replaced it. That left only 5% of readers who want Disney California Adventure to go back to showing the World version full-time.
Disney also is giving its annual passholders extended ride time on Soarin' Over California each Thursday night, with one extra hour of operation for them after park close, starting June 27 though the end of July.
Soarin' is just one of the attractions that Disney is promoting at California Adventure this summer, as it looks to spread visitors around the resort rather than just leave them all to cram into the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land at Disneyland. In addition to Soarin', DCA is offering a new Lion King musical show this summer as well as a couple of rethemed carnival ride in Pixar Pier, the debut of Mickey's Philharmagic and the return of World of Color.Tweet
