Thats very cool. Where did you find those? I tried to screen shot the picture to enlarge it but it got blurry. Thank you  - Pgmlucky  47.5 #4882 1:09PM
Tap on the photo first and say yes when a pop up window  asks you to go to another page. Then an enlarged pic shows up and it will screenshot clearer.  - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 1:14PM

Guests cheered and clapped all around the ROA. It was moving. Then the guides on duty that day and some previous guides took a good bye victory lap in two canoes to more cheering and clapping. Quite a day.Β  - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 9:26AM
That cheering section was huge!  I was wayyy over in the middle of the island and heard the loud screaming for the last two. I knew those were the last by the loudness.  So many huge Disneyland fans there last night.  - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 11:18AM

How was it? - redsoxcarlos  2514.6 #57 4:54PM
The chicken and ribs were wonderfully flavored and felloff the bone. Cornbread had bits of corn in it. Coleslaw was light and zesty. Beans were perfectly cooked and a little sweet with a bit of spicey. Tumbleweed Tex entertained. Service and atmosphere were as good as the food. Good bye Big Thunder Ranch and bbq! - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 5:05PM

Well aviators, Disney blogs has confirmed it. Soarin Around the World is coming to DCA this summer. "Shortly after Shanghai Disneyland opens, a version of the ride, called Soarin’ Around the World, will come to both Disney California Adventure and Epcot." Your thots?

Happy to hear it will get a new video, but really would have liked to see it stay CA-focused, because it's located in CA Adventure.  I'm sure it'll be fun though!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 5:48PM
Yes! When they announced this at D23 I thought the same. 😁😁😁😁It's my favorite ride, I wonder if it still will be after the change? Hopefully they will figure out a way to theme to CA or the land its in.  - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 6:18PM

Personally I think DCA should have an updated "Over California", Epcot should get "Around over the Horizon" and Shanghai should have got  "Around the World". I think each park should get unique takes on similar attractions. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 1:12PM
