Before I saw Soarin Around the World and Europe in the Air (Busch Gardens Williamsburg 2010-2016), I thought Soarin Over California needed better transitions.Around the World is much better, it actually has some (half arsed) transitions rather than lazy jump cuts.
I’m with you there. Pretty much everything in SOC is generic scenes that don’t immediately or exclusively relate to California. I don’t think the first time I rode it I even realized it was all taking place in that state.Until Soarin around the world came around, I didn’t actually know the attraction at Epcot was Soarin over California. And imagine a lot of other people felt the same, that Soarin was just a great attraction and not a great Californian attraction.
People forget that the original was only known as Soarin until SATW was introduced. Then the original got rebranded to suit DCA.I’m with you there.

Kind of. Just to clarify. In California it was always Soarin': Over California as it's fullmtitle before the changePeople forget that the original was only known as Soarin until SATW was introduced. Then the original got rebranded to suit DCA.
To me, it will always be Soarin and fits perfectly with The Land.
True... But luckily, it's not in World Showcase... It's in "The Land." So it still works with EPCOT's theme for that particular pavilion...Why? The World theme fits EPCOT better.
Better than soarin over kansaa. Florida also has nasa and orange groves so we can keep the scent. And they have…. Ummmm yeah youre rightThis is exactly what I want them to do while California is playing. Take the time to make a new film that's just as good or better than the California version.
I think another Around the World would be the best fit for EPCOT, but one just around the US would work pretty well too -- it should also focus more on natural landforms/settings than man-made landmarks, IMO.
I don't think Soarin' over Florida would work very well. It would basically just be beaches and swamps.
The story I heard was that the new cameras, process, HD they now use does not bode well with the shape of the screens and it appears distorted. I’m sure I don’t have it 100% accurate, but it’s along those lines…Fantastic news! I'm curious, has anyone associated with Imagineering ever formally or informally addressed the distortions in the World film if you're not sitting in the center? Did they decide it wasn't a big deal? Did it catch them by surprise and it was too late to change?
