    Planes potentially replacing Soarin' Over California?

    I want to start off by saying this isn't something I want to happen, but I won't be surprised if it does.

    I went to see The Wolverine today and I saw a new trailer for Planes beforehand. The music and overall setup reminded me a lot of Soarin' Over California and it got me thinking... what if they revamped Soarin' to be Planes themed? Having the Test Pilot Grill next door and the whole Condor Flats area top begin with would technically work with a Planes themed attraction.
    I can imagine a ride where you "board" one of the planes and fly around to see the sights of California and then land at Disneyland.

    Re: Planes potentially replacing Soarin' Over California?

    Soarin over California is already popular as it is now, so I feel that incroporating Planes into it is very uneccessary. However, what Soarin really needs is a refurbishment to just clean up everything like the queue and the screen and the upgrade the film quality.

    If that happens, then that's when I'll say there are to many Pixar-like things in DCA

    Re: Planes potentially replacing Soarin' Over California?

    i hope not, i think Soarin, is like a classic in its own for DCA!! i don't think revamping into Planes would be cool at all! i enjoy it the was it is
    i feel like touching and messing with that attraction would be as sad as them changing a DLR classic like the haunted mansion! soarin to me.. is like a DCA classic!

    but on the other hand a refurb would be niceee.

    Soarin' does need a refurb badly, I agree. Last time I went on it the ride just looked dirty and a little broken down. The seatbelts were filthy, the screen was dirty and scratched, and the "hang gliders" were squeaking.

    Hopefully, if that ever comes to fruition it is only at EPCOT and never at CA Adventure.

    Soarin' needs a refurb, maybe a better screen or HD transfer, but it should stick to CA (not the World) and never ever Planes!

    How do you know the movie's bad? Unless you've somehow have see it already, it's unfair to judge the movie without seeing it. Also, it's NOT Pixar, it's done by Disney Toon Studios (the studio who does the animated shows on Disney channel and the infamous direct to DVD sequels).

    On the Soarin' note, while it is a great attraction, it hasn't aged as well as some of the other attractions at the resort (it could really benefit from an update, which all signs are pointing to a Soarin Over the World type of attraction, not a planes version). The closest we'll see to a Planes attraction would be the concept art we saw awhile ago(for the ride system) or at WDW's Carsland.

    Really, why does it matter?

    I say don't touch Soarin'. It's fine the way it is - except as noted by many others - it does need a little sprucing up.

    If they want to add Planes, I would think a more logical choice would be to add that theme to California Screamin'. They could doctor up the launch area to look like an aircraft carrier. Change the load station to look like an airport/landing strip, etc. I don't necessarily want this to happen, but it seems like it might be a better fit for Planes.

    I see where you are coming from but I hope not. It does need some TLC though.

    I hope a Planes conversion never happens.

    In regards to Soarin' Over the World, I hope that doesn't happen for DCA. California should still be the destination. Now, I'm all for a completely new movie, with new scenes/places. That would be great.
