Soarin' Over California Returns to Disneyland Next Month

February 10, 2022, 3:25 PM · Buh-bye, Leaning Tower of Eiffel. Soarin' Over California is coming back to Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort.

The original version of Disney's popular flying theater ride will return "for a limited time" during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, which starts March 4.

Update: The festival runs through April 26 this year, so if want to see the original Soarin’, get to the park before then.

Hopefully it will still be there when I visit mid-May.

Really the best version. Wish it was staying for good.

They have committed to a specific end date - as per the attractions page on the Disneyland website, ‘Glide above the Golden State’s natural and man-made wonders—available March 4 to April 26, 2022, as part of the 2022 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.’

If you don't purchase Genie+ Soarin is now one of the worst lines in the park. They've given the theaters on the right over to Lightning Lane, so the entire standby line feeds into the two theaters on the left. Combined with the stop-start way the Soarin line moves, it's an unbearable wait.

I still enjoy the original so nice to see a return.

@thecolonel - Soarin' at DCA only has two (2) theaters, one to the left and one to the right, each with three boarding corrals, and each of those with 3 rows of guests. EPCOT's version of the ride added a 3rd theater/ride system in 2016 ago to increase its capacity (and to covert to Soarin' Around the World), but no such expansion has been performed in California.

Ah, thanks Russell. Well then, the standby line now feeds the single theater on the left, and the theater on the right is reserved for LL folks, making the standby line particularly egregious.
