As you approach the landing gate, behold the Wings of Fame and the Legends of Flight exhibits, honoring the great airplanes and legendary pilots of California.
Cleared for Takeoff!
Make your way to a briefing room and after being greeted by a California Aviator, take a seat inside a large theater, home to the latest in open-air flight technology. As the lights dim, gracefully ascend 45 feet high and take your position in front of an 80-foot projection dome for a simulated flight across the Golden State.
An Exhilarating and Epic Adventure
The journey begins as the foggy clouds of San Francisco part to reveal the sprawling expanses of the Golden Gate Bridge. Explore picturesque locations including Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Palm Springs, San Diego harbor, Malibu at dusk and the frenetic lights of downtown Los Angeles. Feel like you’re flying and even smell what you’re seeing to a serene and dramatic musical score before returning to the Disneyland Resort for a triumphant flight over Disneyland Park.
No matter your age, you'll be unable to resist smiling on this pleasant journey filled with excitement, wonder and awe-inspiring vistas.
One of the most unforgettable aspects of Soarin' Over California is the serene and dramatic musical score. The music was written and recorded for the attraction by Academy Award®-winning composer Jerry Goldsmith. Inspired by the optimistic spirit of California, the magnificent score is one of the master musician's final works and the culmination of a 5-decade career.
