Tokyo Disney Resort has announced that Soaring: Fantastic Flight will open at Tokyo DisneySea on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.
The latest version of the popular Soarin’ will have content unique to Tokyo and its own backstory which perfectly fits its location in Disneysea’s Mediterranean Harbor.
Soaring: Fantastic Flight
Soaring: Fantastic Flight takes guests on a flight around the world, visiting famous landmarks and areas of natural beauty. The latest announcement confirms that this version will have a scene unique to Tokyo Disney Resort. While the new poster features the Pyramids, Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.
This is a huge launch for Tokyo DisneySea and the ride could prove as popular as Toy Story Mania! Luckily, this will be a FastPass attraction and is included in the “Happy 15” early entry for Disney Hotel guests.
Soaring: Fantastic Flight will have two theatres and the main ride time will be 5 minutes, with a capacity of 87 people per ride. Guests under 102cm will be unable to ride.
Location and Story (Spoilers!)
Soaring: Fantastic Flight is located in the Museum of Fantastic Flight on the Mediterranean Harbor Hill. The new area celebrates the wonders of flight and the life of Camellia Falco, a woman passionate about flying and exploration.
Guests will tour the museum and visit a gallery honoring Camellia’s achievements. Here they will encounter Camelia’s spirit and hear about her inventions. From there, guests board Camellia’s flying invention “the Dream Flyer” and through the power of imagination travel into the future and around the world!
This story fits so well with DisneySea’s themes of exploration and invention and we cannot wait to experience it. Maybe Camellia might turn out to be a secret member of S.E.A.
Edit: It’s been confirmed that Camellia Falco is a member of S.E.A., as seen in an exhibit in Tropical Hideaway at Disneyland Resort.
The story also gives the attraction a unique twist which will make it stand out from the other Soarin’ rides in Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World and Shanghai Disneyland.
How excited are you for the new Soaring: Fantastic Flight? What do you think of the new backstory and Mediterranean setting?
