For the first time, EPCOT’s iconic attraction Soarin’ has a single-rider line–at least for the moment.
On Sunday, August 7, Guests at The Walt Disney World Resort were reporting that a single-rider line was being tested at Soarin’ Around the World in The Land Pavilion of World Nature.
Pictures shared by one Guest show the impromptu Single Rider Line utilizing the Lightning Lane space. For the time being, the walkway for Lightning Lane participants was cut down the middle, creating a separate lane for the single riders.
It appears that Cast Members would then sort out the single riders and Lightning Lane participants once arriving at the different “concourse” theater rooms. It is unclear at this time how long Disney World will be looking to test the single rider aspects for one of its most popular attractions. This test makes Soarin’ Around the World one of the few attractions at EPCOT to offer a single rider option, with the most famous attraction to do so being Test Track over in World Discovery.
The Walt Disney World Resort describes Soarin’ Around the World on its website as the following:
An Exhilarating Aerial Expedition
Feel the thrill as you’re raised high in the air and swept from one scenic locale to the next. See the world’s wonders—natural and manmade—like you never have before. No mountain is too high. No landscape is too far.
Your journey begins as the clouds part above the majestic Swiss Alps. Next, you’ll visit polar bears in icy Greenland, swoop past sailboats on Australia’s iconic Sydney Harbour and weave between elephants marching toward Mount Kilimanjaro.
Glide above marvels like the Great Wall of China, the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India. Cruise over Monument Valley, Fiji’s Lau Island and thundering Iguazu Falls in South America. Look down on the Eiffel Tower as it sparkles like a jewel in the night, surrounded by the lights of Paris.
This must-see attraction will leave your heart soaring!
