    It's not SOARING! Soarin!!!

    On many boards I read, people post their TRs like this:

    "I went on Soaring over California"

    "Lets go on the Soaring California ride!"


    Why do people like to call it Soaring and not Soarin?

    Maybe because Soarin' isn't a real word and you won't find it in a dictionary, while soaring is and some people just naturally type words they way they are suppose to be spelled... not the short cut way.

    Honestly, it's not a really big deal. The average guest is not going to remember the name of each attraction. That's like getting mad at people calling DCA just California Adventure, or not adding park to Disneyland

    Don't hang out with me in DCA. I say "Soaring" instead of Soarin' all the time.

    Don't hang out with me either as I'll want to go on Auto-topia, the Haunted House, the Jack Sparrow ride and the Jungle Book Cruise.

    Perhaps it's because some people actually enjoy going to the parks for the simple fun, and not to be fanitacal about petty details like word pronunciation, or spellings???

    By the way, I had a fun time riding Toy Story Mania yesterday!

    A CM called it "Soaring" so I went to City Hall and complained.

    I could barely contain myself.

    Is that a reference to another thread, Duck44?

    haha These rides that we all love have names and i know some of us on MC are just sticklers for them...but i think if its going to be an argument of Soarin' VS. Soaring...we should just let it go. Just break the wrist and walk away. Break the wrist...walk away.

    If the name of the attraction really was "Soaring," people probably would still drop the last syllable and pronounce it "Soarin'". The reason for the "Soarin'" name was probably to make it easier to prounounce.

    Re: It's not SOARING! Soarin!!!

    What I find funny is that when the name is in correct English, people pronounce it incorrectly. And then when the ride name is in incorrect English, people pronounce it correctly. It's like there is this mental thing to always get the name wrong no matter if it is spelled right or wrong. Kinda funny actually.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Haha that is funny! When is your baby due?

    I think the reason why people call it "Soaring, is because 1 like someone else said "soarin'" isn't a word. They rather say it the proper way instead of using the slang term of it.
