Tokyo Disney Resort has announced the opening date for their newest attraction, Soaring: Fantastic Flight.
The new attraction, based on Soarin’ Around the World at Disney California Adventure and Epcot in the U.S., will open at Tokyo DisneySea on July 23, 2019. This version of the ride will feature new scenes and an exclusive experience to the park in Japan.
Soaring: Fantastic Flight is a flight motion-simulator attraction, located in the Mediterranean Harbor area, that will take guests on an exciting journey across the famous landscapes of the world, complete with breezes and scents that match the scenes.
While we don’t know exactly where the attraction will take guests on their journey, the poster for Soaring: Fantastic Flight features the pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal, and the Great Wall of China.
Guests of all ages will be able to experience this ride in one of two theaters, with the experience clocking in at about 5 minutes in length. The height requirement for this attraction is 40 inches tall.
Soaring: Fantastic Flight also features its own backstory, which you can check out below:
Nestled in the hills of Mediterranean Harbor, amidst the backdrop of an old-world Italian village, the Museum of Fantastic Flight is dedicated to humankind’s enduring dream of flying. Today, the museum celebrates Camellia Falco – a visionary innovator in the fledgling field of aviation – with a special retrospective of her life.
A grand tour of the museum includes a magical visit from the spirit of Camellia and culminates with guests boarding her latest and greatest achievement – a flying vehicle of her own design called the Dream Flyer. Guests soon experience what Camellia believed, that our imagination can propel us into the future and take us everywhere in the world we wish to go. And before guests know it, their spirits are sent soaring.
Guests will be able to book FastPasses for this attraction, and it is also included in the “Happy 15” – an exclusive privilege that allows early entry into the parks for guests staying at a Disney hotel.
