Jul 15, 2015 in "Soarin'"

Disney took the wraps off the Shanghai Disneyland project yesterday, with an announcement of the full attraction line-up for the new park opening next year.

Of interest to Walt Disney World fans is the inclusion of 'Soaring Over the Horizon' - which is widely tipped to be the same updated version that will also be installed at Epcot and Disney California Adventure.

Along with the new movie which features destinations throughout the world, Epcot's Soarin' will also have expanded capacity with the addition of a third theater. The updated movie sequence and the third theater is expected to open in late 2016.

Here is the full description of Shanghai's 'Soaring Over the Horizon.'

Anyone who has dreamed of seeing the world or soaring like a bird will enjoy the exhilarating experience at Soaring Over the Horizon, with an aerial tour of the globe never seen before. High above some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, Soaring over the Horizon will take travelers on a voyage of discovery that tours every continent. Starting from an ancient observatory nestled in the cloud forest, guests will soar and explore spectacular scenic wonders, with special segments for guests of Shanghai Disneyland overlooking Shanghai and The Great Wall of China. An ideal attraction for the entire family, it offers an original story, a new walk-through experience and a new aerial tour. The attraction is an epic re-mastering of the popular attraction at Disney California Adventure, in the United States.
