Soarin' is infamous for its lengthy standby wait times.

Disney is in the process of installing interactive video systems, motion detectors, etc. that will make the wait time easier to cope with.

The 'Grand Hall' will feature large screens where guests waiting on line can participate in activities such as racing birds across the landscape.

Depending on how guests respond, these changes may become permanent and lead to changes in other queue areas.

i never really had to wait on line for soarin'.
i went right when the park opened and then i had a fastpass the other time i went on it. but the additions sound entertaining enough.

The times I went on Soarin' I walked on both times.
wow.

I like the idea though.

They should definitely do this for other rides, such as Splash Mountain.
That wait is killer.

It sounds like a really neat idea, though. And it also seems like the type of thing Siemens would sponsor; like they did with the Project Tomorrow after Spaceship Earth.

I always wait in line at Soarin'. The ideas are good, because I've memorized all of the questions in the queue that they have now.

This seems cool but it can also hold up lines alot. People may be to into racing the birds across the screen to notice the line moving.
I wish they tested more things not in the summer. The one time of the year Im not in Orlando and they test all the cool things. This and the segway tour at Fort Wilderness.
