Walt Disney World Resort has officially made the announcement on the Disney Parks website page that the EPCOT attraction, Soarin’, will close on January 4, 2016. Once the attraction closes, it will not open again until the summer of 2016. .
Why the closure?
The attraction will add a third screen to help shorten the lines. In addition, the attraction will update to a new film entitled, Soarin’ Around the World which will take guests to far-off lands and will fly over unique natural landscapes and man-made wonders. The updated Soarin’ Around The World will use the same technology that Disney is using to create Soaring Over the Horizon at Shanghai Disney.
