    Hello! We absolutely love the Soarin’ Over California ride version and are planning a trip for May. Will this version still be playing at this time? It’s been almost 10 years since I’ve seen it and I’m really hoping to share it with my kiddo! Thank you!

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Jessica. My name is Michelle and I'll be your Chief Flight Attendant today, at least when it comes to important flight instructions for answering your question. So keep your seat belt fastened and store all carry-on items in the under-seat compartment as I share the following information. 

    Soarin' Over California is also my favorite version of this attraction and I can't wait for its return this year during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. I can already imagine the sweet smell of citrus as you glide by the orange groves. I can certainly understand your excitement to share the classic version of this attraction with your kiddo during your visit. The Food & Wine Festival is scheduled to run from March 1 through April 22, 2024, which, unfortunately, is just before your planned visit. In my experience, this is the only time during the year that this version of the attraction is available to enjoy for a limited time. I'm so sorry and wish I had better news to share with you, Jessica. 

    Although the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will have come to an end before your visit, there will still be plenty of magical things to enjoy. Pixar Fest will be in full swing with wonderful things to enjoy like a nighttime spectacular, daytime parade and Character encounters just to name a few. If you and your kiddo happen to be Star Wars fans, the Season of the Force at Disneyland Park will also be happening during your visit. You can fly through a galaxy far, far away for a limited time during this event on Hyperspace Mountain. This is another one of my favorite versions of this particular attraction (Space Mountain). 

    Well, Jessica, although this probably isn't the answer you wanted to hear, I hope I was able to provide some other suggestions for your magical visit. If you're not able to visit while Soarin' Over California is available this year, I hope you get the opportunity to share this wonderful version of the attraction with your little one soon.
