Walt Disney World’s website now reflects the upcoming refurbishment for Soarin’ at Epcot. Soarin’ will close for refurbishment beginning January 4, 2016 and will reopen in the summer of 2016. Disney will be adding another theater at Soarin’ and updating the screens and projection system to bring a visually enhanced experience.
While I am excited for the enhancements, because Soarin’ needs it, that’s a long refurbishment. I hope Disney adds a little something to take some pressure off of Test Track. Securing a FastPass+ selection for Test Track will now move to the top of my list for my Epcot touring days. And if I somehow don’t secure one, then at least I can drown my sorrows at Karamell-Küche.
