CONFIRMED: Soarin closing in January for major refurbishment

image      CONFIRMED! Listed on The Walt Disney World website, Soarin now shows it will be closed beginning January 4th, 2016 until Summer for refurbishment. It’s well known that Disney has been building a third theater for the attraction to help diminish the long queue wait times for it. It was also announced a few months “Soarin’ Around the World,” which was filmed for Shanghai Disneyland, will be coming to WDW in 2016.

Therefore it can safely be assumed the closure in January is to change Soarin’ intoimage“Soarin’ Around the World”. The new attraction will take guests flying over locales all around the world including the Great Wall of China, the Painted Desert, and more in HD. The new video and 3rd Soarin’ theater are expected to open around May 2016, about the same time as the new FROZEN Ever After attraction in Norway at Epcot.
