Soarin' Around the World opens June 17 at Epcot and California Adventure SoarinWorld

Guests on both coasts will soon have a chance to “soar” over the Great Wall of China and the Sydney Harbor in Australia when Soarin’ Over the World debuts at Epcot and Disney California Adventure on June 17, 2016.

The updated attraction will premier first at Shanghai Disneyland, but then open the next day in the U.S. Parks.

Also on June 17, guests at Epcot will experience a new interactive queue and a third theater.  Epcot guests can begin booking Fastpass+ for Soarin’ Around the World on April 21.

What won’t change is the immersive multi-sensory experience, with exciting sights, sounds and even smells.

Here’s a look behind the scenes at the making of Soarin’ Around the World:
