Soarin’ Over California is one of my favorite Adventures in DCA, especially on a hot day. There are so many neat things in the queue to keep your attention and of course the ride itself is incredible. It’s a perfect respite from warm weather with the chilled air and the many refreshing scents blown your way. I’m not sure I could name a favorite scent though. Could you?
The sun dipping behind the Soarin’ structure is a really cinematic moment that almost feels like it should be included in the ride itself. It’s easy to forget that you’re at Disneyland and start dreaming of flying into that sunset on your very own adventure. Just watch for passersby. They don’t take too kindly to being run into, even if you’re humming an epic theme song.
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’.
