    At a minimum Soarin’ Over California should be reinstated permanently at Disney’s California Adventure. I believe it is worthy of being reinstated at Epcot as well bevause I am of the opinion it is the more authentic version (less CGI/artificial visusl effects) and has the superior score as composed by Jerry Goldsmith. That said, I would accept a compromise of Soarin over the World at Epcot (appropriate for a park with a “World Showcase” as long as Soarin Over California was available on a permanent basis at the theme park that has “California” in its title. Cmon guys, this should be obvious. You never should fix something if it ain’t broke and Soarin’ over California is so beloved, it feels like a loss any time it gets pulled out of circulation. #makesoarinovercaliforniapermanent
