I have been on this ride many times at both EPCOT and Disney California Adventure and I am continuously baffled by the response, (and queue times) it receives. Perhaps it's the upkeep. Every time I have taken a "flight," the screens have been dirty and grainy, something I'm immediately drawn to. If there were a story to the ride, something that engages me more, I would be able to find it more enjoyable. I'm not saying I need Iago screeching by, telling us to head for the Golden Gate Bridge, but I continue to find this ride unimpressive each time. Perhaps the rumored "Soarin' Around the World" might prove to be more engaging, but based on the basis of the ride, I may be disappointed.
