WELCOME TO THE LAND!


The Land Pavilion in the Epcot Theme Park is a 6-acre area for Guests of all ages dedicated to human interaction with the land.


Here you will discover SOARIN, LIVING WITH THE LAND and THE CIRCLE OF LIFE!



ATTRACTIONS:



SOARIN is exactly what you are doing over incredible California landscapes and images you are immersed in. When the ride begins you will be lifted 40 feet up and in front on the huge IMAX round screen that envelopes you. When the images start you will feel like you are flying in a huge hang glider banking left and right with the images as they change. It is incredible when you actually recognize the scenery.


Soarin


As you fly through the images your senses will come alive. You will smell the oranges going through the orange groves, evergreens when going over the tops of the evergreen trees and you may even smell the salt in the ocean as you skim over the waves while the surfers wave at you.




Soarin

The finale is the dizzying effect of swooping down Main Street USA at nighttime with all the beautiful lights lit. You will end up at Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland with beautiful fireworks all around you. The last firework display is Mickey’s Head with Tinkerbell flying all around. You will find that you will want to ride this ride over and over.

Fun Facts: For the scene that takes place at the Disneyland Theme Park, the film crew had to arrange for a special staging.

fastpass

FASTPASS is Disney’s FREE Service that helps cut down the time you have to stand in line for some of your favorite rides. Where eligible, go to your ride and to the Fastpass Center. Put your Disney ticket in the appropriate slot and in a few seconds your Fastpass will pop-out and you will get your Disney ticket back at the same time. On your Fastpass there will be an allotted time that you can go back to your ride and instead of going in the standby line you will go in the Fastpass Line. A Disney Cast Member will look at your ticket to make sure you are in your allotted time. This way you can board your attraction with a minimal wait. Tip: When you enter the park, go to your favorite rides and get your Fastpass. If you wait too long the Fastpass Center may run out of allotted times.
