“Soarin’ Over California” first debuted at Disney California Adventure on February 8, 2001, and later expanded to EPCOT in 2005. The original version continued until 2016 when it was temporarily replaced by “Soarin’ Around the World,” featuring international destinations. “Soarin’ Over California” has made occasional returns for limited-time runs, and this marks its first return to Walt Disney World.
