Your journey around the globe begins with a visit to the mighty Matterhorn on the Swiss-Italian border, and moving on to the ice floes of the frozen Arctic (keep an eye out for those playful polar bears!). Next up is Sydney Harbour in Australia, with its beautiful Opera House, then it’s back to Europe, where French horn fanfares welcome you to Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany.

Then it’s over to Africa and a herd of elephants in Tanzania, followed by a stop at the Great Wall of China before returning to Africa for an up-close-and-personal view of the pyramids of Giza, located just outside of Cairo, Egypt. It’s then on to the magnificent Taj Mahal, complete with the traditional sound of the sitar; across the ocean to the majestic red rock formations of Utah’s Monument Valley, then back to join outrigger boats along the coast of Fiji in the south Pacific.

You’ll then fly over Iguazu Falls, which flow on the border of Argentina and Brazil, and then scale the mighty Eiffel Tower in Paris. Finally, Tinker Bell appears to welcome you back to Epcot with a magnificent view of Spaceship Earth at night.

Soarin’ Around the World is an attraction that’s simply not to be missed, and it’s a journey that you’ll never forget! Oh, and did we mention the memorable musical score by Bruce Broughton ? It will make your heart (pardon the pun) soar!
