Well, it’s been a week or so. I haven’t taken my mind off the pending trip, but my life has picked up. I expect to be super busy from now until we leave, so I’ll post when I can.

For today, I’m thinking about Soarin’ Over California. This ride has a ridiculously long line, but it’s worth waiting for 20 minutes in the FastPass line, which is a fairly regular occurrence. If you do decide to brave the standby line, there are fun games and information to pass the two hours time you’ll be standing there. Just make sure you pee before you get in line, because those ocean scenes will get you if you don’t.

This is another low key ride, but unlike the TTA, everyone else is in love with it. Feeling like your gliding over famous California landmarks while orange pinesol is sprayed into the room makes for a relaxing, yet invigorating experience. The only parts of the ride I don’t care for are the sped up footage of LA at night (Disney didn’t know they only got one shot and had to make due with their trial run) and the fake fireworks at the very end. Yes, it’s Disney and cute, but much more effort could have been put into it I feel.

Still, I can’t wait to get my fast pass and experience my “flight” over the golden coast.
