Now Boarding All Passengers

Depart on a journey through the sky, flying high from one extraordinary landmark to the next. It’s Soarin’ Around the World!

An Exhilarating International Adventure
Passengers, prepare for liftoff—and get ready to visit some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring destinations.

No mountain is too high. No landscape is too far. Whether you’re soaring above man-made marvels like the majestic Great Wall of China, cruising over natural sights like Iguazu Falls in South America or swooping past sailboats on Australia’s spectacular Sydney Harbour, this is your chance to experience the joy of hang gliding as you never have before.

So get ready—and strap yourselves in for this epic re-imagining of a beloved Future World attraction!

Live the Dream of Flying
In the grand Disney tradition, Imagineers pulled out all the stops to make fantasy reality, bringing the feeling of flight to life using a 180-degree, 80-foot IMAX projection dome and aerially captured footage that simulates the graceful motion of a hang glider.

Spectacular digital projection technology lifts the sensation to incredible heights. Thrill as you're raised 40 feet in the air, engulfed in the stunning panoramas and swept from one scenic locale to the next!
