    We will be coming back in April 24. For the Disney 100 I have heard that Soarin around the world has been replaced with Soarin over California . Will this still be available when we visit? We would really like to see this version.

    Hi, William!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    There has been a lot of excitement at EPCOT this fall!  In addition to the usual autumn events such as the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, this fall EPCOT also joined in the celebration of the Walt Disney Company's 100th anniversary.  The Disney100 Celebration at EPCOT began in late September and its limited-time offerings are expected to continue through the end of 2023.

    As part of the Disney100 festivities, Soarin' Over California has returned, temporarily taking the place of Soarin' Around the World.  While we know that the classic California version of this attraction is only back for a limited time, an end date has not yet been announced.  Most of the other Disney100 offerings are expected to conclude on December 31, 2023.  It remains to be seen if Soarin' Over California will end its latest run on this date as well or if it will stick around a bit longer.  I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements.

    While I can't say for certain which version of Soarin' you'll get to experience when you visit EPCOT this spring, I'm sure you're going to have lots of fun.  The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full swing during your visit, allowing you to savor the sights, sounds, and tastes of spring.  Also, be sure to check out the gorgeous new walkthrough attraction, Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana.

    If you have any other questions as you plan for your upcoming trip, please don't hesitate to ask.  My fellow planDisney panelists and I are all ears!  See ya real soon!
