Tokyo Disney Resort new attraction, Soaring: Fantastic Flight, opens 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.
I expect soft openings to happen, maybe a week before opening (it’s never announced). With these types of soft openings, the attraction may only operate for a limited amount of time per day and number of guests may be limited. It’s best to keep an eye on the wait times board and head there immediately if you notice it’s open.
Soaring: Fantastic Flight
Soaring: Fantastic Flight takes guests on a flight around the world, visiting famous landmarks and areas of natural beauty. Locations will include the Pyramids, Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal as well as a new location unique to Tokyo Disney Resort.
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 Fantastic Flight Museum 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. Check out the sneak peek inside the Museum in the video below.
Guests will tour the museum and visit a gallery honouring 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. Also, it now confirmed that Camellia Falco is a member of S.E.A., as seen in an exhibit in Tropical Hideaway at Disneyland Resort. Perfect!
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.

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.
