Disney confirms Soarin' expansion and theater upgrades

Mar 05, 2015 in "Soarin'"

We've known about since those plans were filed late last year, and today Disney has officially announced the expansion of Soarin' at Epcot's Land Pavilion.

Besides the addition of a third theater details are scarce on the upgrades, but according to Disney, they will be "updating the screens and projection system at Soarin,’ bringing a visually enhanced experience."

A new film is expected to also debut at the same time, although no mention has yet been made by Disney regarding the update.

The attraction has had long lines ever since opening in 2005, with Soarin' being one of the only major rides at the park that can be experienced by the whole family. With the introduction of FastPass+, capacity has proven to be an even bigger issue.

The expanded Soarin' will open in late 2016.
