According to the Walt Disney World website, February 27 will be the last day to ride Soarin’ Over California. Soarin’ Around the World will be back on February 28.

The original version of the attraction was Soarin’ Over California, which opened with Disney California Adventure on February 8, 2001. It then came to EPCOT in 2005, as Soarin’, in The Land Pavilion. The queue and entrance took over space previously occupied by Food Rocks. The original Soarin’ was dubbed Soarin’ Over California when it closed in both parks in 2016 and Soarin’ Around the World, featuring international destinations, opened.

Soarin’ Over California has since returned to Disney California Adventure for multiple limited-time runs, but this was the first time it returned to Walt Disney World. A Disney100 medallion was added to the Soarin’ sign for the return.

Though 100th anniversary celebrations were set to end on December 31, the California version of Soarin’ and other Disney100 elements stuck around at EPCOT. Guests can still meet Mickey and Minnie in their Disney100 outfits.
