More about Soarin’ Around the World

Strap in and prepare for lift off! Thrill as you’re raised high into the air in front of an 80-foot projection dome for a virtual tour around the world. Incredible IMAX digital projection and spectacular aerial footage simulate the graceful motion of flight.

Ride the Sky
Your journey begins as the clouds part above the majestic Swiss Alps, revealing a familiar sight to Disneyland fans. Next, you’ll visit polar bears in icy Greenland, swoop past sailboats on Australia’s iconic Sydney Harbour and weave between elephants marching toward Mount Kilimanjaro.

Glide above marvels like the Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India. Cruise over Monument Valley, Fiji’s Lau Island and thundering Iguazu Falls in South America. Gaze down at the Eiffel Tower as it sparkles like a jewel in the night, surrounded by the lights of Paris.

An Uplifting Musical Score
Academy Award-winning composer Jerry Goldsmith wrote the unforgettable score for the original version of this attraction, Soarin’ Over California, which first took flight in 2001.

When the attraction was updated in 2016 to feature locations around the globe, composer Bruce Broughton affectionately adapted the beloved musical themes and infused each note with all-new sounds, regional instruments and international influences.

With stirring sights and sounds, this must-see attraction will leave your heart soaring!
