    Soarin' over California

    with filming to start soon on Soarin' over the World... I don't like the idea of such a global theme being placed inside DCA. A world theme is perfect for Epcot, but what does London or Egypt have to do with CA?

    Seeing how Soarin' is almost 10 years old a new film does need to be made. What about making the film changable? 5 openings - 5 middles - 5 closing..... that way each time you go on it you get to see different parts of CA. Now since the National Park themeing is supposed to overtake Condor Flats, I would make all the openings be about Northern CA location... middles about Central CA... and closings about Southern CA - that way you create more of a storyline and organizes the scenes.

    Discussion:

    Does a "World" theme makes sense?
    Does Soarin' need a new film?
    Do you think the ride system could handle multiple, changable scenes?
    Should Soarin' at DCA stay CA themed?

    no..a world theme at dca dose not make sense..but i do think a new film is needed i dont think the ride could handle mutiple films it might slow down the ride to much or cause more film problems. I like the idea about filimg northern middle and southern california..or maybe make the film completly devoted to nature hot spots.

    Re: Soarin' over California

    I agree wholeheartedly that doing Soarin' Over the World at DCA would be an embarrassingly bad decision on Disney's part. Honestly, I doubt that'll happen...Disney's made some unfortunate decisions in the last decade or two, but I'm too much of an optimist to believe that they're capable of doing...that right now.

    Honestly, I don't really think it needs a new film right now, anyway. The lines are quite long, guests aren't complaining, and there's little to dislike about the film. (The hard edits often come up in discussions, but for reasons I've explained elsewhere, I don't think that particular problem could be easily solved.)

    Re: Soarin' over California

    I don't understand either. The only reason I could see them putting it in California Adventure is it being in 3D or HD. But even then, why take away California from California Adventure? That doesn't really make sense either way.

    Re: Soarin' over California

    I agree... the World theme does not make sense in DCA. And although I do not have a problem with the current film, I definatly think that something new and fresh go be put in. And I dont see why the system couldnt handle multiple versions... especially with the load and unload time which could be used for the program selection. But all in all whatever happens it should stay CA themed.

    The only way Disney could "kind of" tie in a Soarin' World would be to have it look like you're departing from a California airport and then visiting the "world" and then returning to perhaps another California airport.

    It seems to me the film already starts in Northern California and goes south from there.

    But no direct observation is required to know that Soarin' Over the World wouldn't fit in a park that claims to be about California. No matter how excellent the production values were, it'd still be a mismatch.

    true - we have no clue what the "World" version will be like....but how is it relevant to California? A handglider can only go soooo far.

    I think the film is fine the way it is (sans the ending). Yay Christmas time in July!

    Re: Soarin' over California

    It's kind of dumb to have "world" in the park when DCA appears to be staying "CA" themed. Now, if they kept the current movie and added the World one for variety, and switched between the two, that would be okay because they're keeping some semblance of theme. I am all for multiple movies in that theatre, but at least half of however many there are should be CA themed.

    Re: Soarin' over California

    I personally would like to see a Soarin' over USA a little more than the world. I think it would be a cool NEXT step to go across the USA before you go across the world.

    With the theming, who knows what they are thinking. I mean really, i dont think they even know what they're thinking about theming. It seems like they want to get away from the california, but also want to keep it going. We will just wait and see.
