A decent 11 minute video of the whole experience — which shows the distracting dangling legs! Click to access YouTube video.

Soarin’ at Epcot was one of our FastPass+ reservations. It looked good when we were looking through the attractions and it was INDEED fun. The ride we got was the same one shown in the YouTube video (above) and was a trip over California — which was fun since Deanna and I had done the San Francisco tourist ‘thing’ in 2005.

Good ride.

But, there was something that was NOT RIGHT.

You had feet from the other riders dangling in front of YOU and to your side.

That spoils the whole illusion and hoped for effect.

If this was anywhere else I would not bitch about it.

But, this is Dinsey! Disney can and SHOULD do better.

In the scheme of things it shouldn’t be too hard for Disney to come up with a way to fix the dangling leg distraction.

Come on, Disney … where is your magic?

So this was poor — as is their insistence on having a discredited German firm, viz. Siemens, sponsoring Epcot.

What would Walt do?

A few years ago when we visited the Empire State Building we did a similar ride. I could be wrong, but I think it was better. So this is just a heads up and a request to Disney. Please make this ride better. Thank you.


I am good at playing the tourist part. Note the yellow FastPass+ bracelet. Click to ENLARGE.

Making sure Teischan got her share of Character Dining was a key goal. Click to ENLARGE.
