Marvel at the wonders of nature in this delightful film that combines animation, live action and your favorite "Lion King" characters.

After all, they're part of the Circle of Life.

youtube video of Soarin' preshow, showing operation of seatbelt and the extra strap. Preshow recommends the extra strap for the 'smallest aviators', but I would recommend it for anyone needing extra security.
