  1. Bear in Pavement -- along the walkway leaving Condor Flats you can find many "cracks" in the pavement, including this one that looks like the Grizzly Peak bear head.

  • Show
    1. 2 IMAX screens
    2. When the ride first starts off, you are flying through the clouds. As the ride continues, the clouds fade away, and you are suddenly over the ocean looking at sailing ships. Look down to your bottom left of the screen, and you will see Captian Hook's Pirate Ship

    3. A cast memeber told me that Soarin' Over California was filmed using a helicopter. He said that the blades of the 'copter casts a shadow on the battleship. I looked and sure enough, down on the bottom, if you look for it you vcan see the shadow of...not just the blades of the helicopter but...The whole helicopter!

    4. In Soarin' Over California, the golf ball that shoots by with Mickey on it is hit by none other than Michael Eisner.
      REPORTED: Clint 21 FEB 02
    5. When on Soarin' Over California you will fly over orange fields. When flying over the fields you should smell an orange tree scent. It is not very strong but it is there.
      REPORTED: SpencerL 11 JUL 01
      Not only can you smell the smell of oranges there are smells for almost all the places you soar over, such as the smell of sea breezes as you soar over the ocean. I think the ride was designed that way, for people to experience all the sensations of Soaring over California.
