Patrick Warburton Makes Surprise Appearance At Disney Park On Soarin’ Over California Attraction

by Staff

A select group of Disney California Adventure Park guests were treated to a special appearance from actor Patrick Warburton as they were ready to board the Soarin’ Over California attraction.

Warburton has been part of the attraction since it first opened in 2001, providing “important safety tips” for passengers in the queue before taking their flight over iconic Californian sceneries.

The actor made an in-person appearance as a chief flight attendant during the limited return of Soarin’ Over California amid the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival through April 22.

Instead of guests seeing the safety tips on the screen, Warburton delivered the tips live. Warburton decided to conduct his final safety check in person before surprised guests flew through picturesque locations in California, including Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Palm Springs, San Diego harbor, Malibu at dusk and the energetic lights of downtown Los Angeles, before returning for a triumphant flight over Disneyland park.

“It’s just magical to see how beloved Soarin’ Over California still is after all of these years,” Warburton shared. “I can remember my first trip to Disneyland at the age of five and I continue to be a huge Disney fan, so to be part of a Disney attraction that has lasted this long has just been such a sweet and wonderful thing for me.”

He continued, “Getting to surprise guests today was super fun, and it’s great to see the impact that this safety intro has made for the past 23 years and how people still love it. It was such a blast getting to be the Chief Flight Attendant for Soarin’ Over California once again!”

The rest of the year, the attraction is called Soarin’ Around the World, which features locations in Switzerland, Italy, Australia, Egypt, India, Paris, and more. Disney theme parks that feature the attraction include Epcot in Florida, Shanghai Disneyland Park, where it’s known as Soaring Over the Horizon, and Tokyo Disney Sea, where it’s known as Soaring: Fantastic Flight.
