I can almost guarantee the reason they are doing this is because of the ending being outdated. Hopefully part of it is also because of unless your in the middle section you get bendy Eiffel Tower lol.

But the original Soarin and especially the music is So much better. I don’t expect it to stick around long term unfortunately and i understand it doesn’t fit Epcot, but I hope they redo, fix or replace Around The World.

They should probably do what they do with the theater in France. First half of the day its World and later on its California. That way guests will come in during both times depending on which show they prefer.
No, you have 3 “theaters”…California goes in 1 and around the world goes in the other 2…after about one month, they’ll realize their mistake and switch it…

Yeah, California doesn't really make sense at EPCOT.

That said, I think this is fine as a temporary measure if they're going to use this time to fix the world film (or create a new, better one).
Yeah, it does…why do you want to see a film about California when you live in California…

I forgot how much better the OG version was over Around the World until I went to Anaheim during Food & Wine, where it's brought back seasonally. It'd be really neat if they brought it back like that here too. Nice to have variation.

While Around the World fits thematically better at EPCOT if we want to tie it into World Showcase, everything from the presentation to the music and pacing is just so much more competent with Over California than what replaced it.

Another great piece of theme park news.

Why do you want to see a film about California in a park that has absolutely nothing to do with California in any way?

It doesn't make sense at EPCOT. The California version is definitely better, and I'm not complaining about it going in for now, but they need an equally good (or better) version of a world film for EPCOT instead of just giving up and using the California one permanently.

Why? Don’t you remember when you were a kid and looked at travel logs or view masters of places you’ve never been to? Maybe the MULTITUDE of international guests in Orlando will NEVER have the opportunity to travel to California…
I don’t wanna see the state I live in…it just makes more sense. IMHO

This is basically arguing my point for me -- this is why it makes more sense to have a world film at EPCOT rather than simply one state in the US.

We can agree to disagree…the Cali film is better, the scents are even better. Let’s compromise…again, put the Cali in one and the world in the other 2…in 1 month the wait times for Cali will be such that they’ll reverse it. I’m tired of looking at the Eiffel Tower bent when I haven’t even made it to the F&W festival yet…

I agree with the concept but wondering how they could manage the queue. Would it be random by the time you get it the separation point, could you request the version you want? And if you could, would 1.0 be full while 2.0 gets a trickle?
