We have been on every spot on it. Sitting in the front feels even more real. It is one of our favorites. I feel like I am going to fall everytime lol. I had a few omg moments my first time on it. The ending is my kids favorite

Wait for the front row, it's the best vantage point and does actually make you feel like you're soaring at points ...

Seeing other people's feet dangling in your line of vision ruins the 'illusion'.

My Vietnam vet pilot DBF says no--it's nothing like flying. I, on the other hand, love it and feel like I am flying.

The screen definitely needs updating; unfortunately I don't think I'd be as impressed riding it now if it were my first time. Often times the scents are not working

However, the music, smoothness, 'breeze', and scenic views still make this ride a must-do for me.

From reading most of the reviews on here it seems that Soarin is receiving quite negative reviews. I have to disagree. While there are some up dates that could be made to it (just like with any ride); over all it is one of the best rides in my opinion. It is a relaxing ride, smells are neat, feels realistic (if you can use a bit of imagination). I don't believe any of the rides feel or look the way that the Disney pictures/videos advertise them---so I don't base any ride on that (I mean think of TOT, RNRC, etc.). When it comes to rides, to each his own but I really like this one and don't let the negative comments sway your opinion until you are able to experience it yourself.

No, it doesn't feel real. But, it's a good time. We only wait if it's a short line. We'll eat a quick service meal for dinner, then head over. It's not usually too crowded.

The kids love it. But, I do agree, the front row is the best.

Does it feel real? No, not really. It is pretty cool though. I like the attraction. Although, I wouldn't wait ninety minutes in line. We always get fastpasses.

I love Soaring! You have to experience it for yourself and ignore the negative comments. It is a popular ride because the fastpasses disappear very quickly. By the way, I didn't notice any dirt on the screen.

We went on Soarin four times during on trip in August. We loved the ride
but front row center is much better than third row on the side were you see
feet dangling from the other rows. We noticed 3 out 4 times the screen was
clean but one time black spots were appearing a few times.

It's like any other ride at Disney where some people will love and some won't.
It's best to try it once to see.
