Daily Photo Tour - Soarin' Over a California Night

Soarin' Over California is one of those rides that's as grand outside as it is in. Just looking up at it you know you're in for something amazing. The ride itself is so immersive with all of the sights and smells that transport you all over on a tour of our Golden State of California. One minute it smells like a pine forest, the next an ocean breeze and then my favorite, an orange grove. It's crazy to me to think that orange grove could have been right where we ride Soarin'. Just so you know, Clinique Happy cologne for men smells an awful lot like the orange scent in Soarin'.

As a former Soarin' Cast Member, I must say this captures it perfectly! Soarin' to tower, we are ready for takeoff.
