Honestly I liked them about the same.maybe world was a bit better. The destinations in world were far better than California, an those transitions in world were amazing!!! But the scents in California were much better. (You literally smelled African elephants in world.) also I think the music was a little better in California but in world it kinda changed for each area which was good for feeling more immersive but it made the destinations feel a lot more disconnected and almost random.

California was good but we liked soaring over the world. The view of Paris was fantastic. The smells were neat too. It is a nice change.

I just watched the Soarin Over the World through YouTube and loved it. I agree the editing was choppier than California but the landmarks and animals were incredible. Both are amazing films but I think I like the world better a bit more. I am biased however since I live in CA and can explore my state whenever, whereas I can't travel outside of CA as easily. Also I loved that the pyramids were in it (I love Egyptology). I can't comment on the smells though as there were none when I went on Soarin Over CA and I don't know which scents are on the world version.

World was scary for me. More heights that I didn't like. It was cool tho when I opened my eyes

I'm a huge fan of the original version but I must admit I was really impressed with the new version. I got to see things I will never in my life experience and very close up. I thought it was pretty cool.

I am with Pixie dust. We enjoyed the original but really like the new world version.

World is beautiful but I missed the smells of California. They seemed to be more prominent than the new ones. But the screen and video upgrades are very nice. You can't see the individual squares of the screens anymore so it feels more real. Since they have two screens, I hope they will offer both in the future.

I loved both. The only thing I noticed was that California was mostly actual filmed shots, but World was Computer Imaging. Also, we were in section C, and when they showed the Eiffel Tower, it was really curved because of the angle we were seeing it from. Even though, we really enjoyed it.

Yes we love both as well. But it is true the section c Eiffle tower is really curved as well as the flag pole in disneyland. Rode sectiin b it was awsome! Didn't ride section a.

The "C" in DCA is for CALIFORNIA, why not keep to the theme park of D"C"A?

like California better. rode World two or three times, just to be sure I wasn't being a stick in the mud about not liking it. waiting in line music is now the best thing about it. wish they had redone California, but with different areas. maybe the could do Soaring over the United States.

I'm with Mickey Bound and NapaJane. I like the World. The first time we went on it we immediately got FastPass to ride it again. And as you said, it shows so many places I'll never see.

I personally like World better. We had always heard about the smells for California but never noticed anything different. World just gives you so much more. The one thing I don't like about World is that it could be a straight route instead of jumping all over the place. That's the one qualm I have. One reason I didn't like World is because it always ended at Christmas time. While that's fine during the holidays, I don't want to think about Christmas in March or Middle of summer.

We enjoyed the original better. It fits with the theme of the park.

I love them both, BUT. They should have World on one side and California on the other. And they need to be a bit longer.

I think they have long term plans for changing it a lot.

I really like World but unless you sit in the middle everything leans. And I really miss the river rafting

I love them both but prefer California a little more. So true. Depending on where you're sitting, some scenes in World do lean.

California version was like a visit to the spa. I miss it dearly. The World version is good but I don't like the smell of grass. They should switch it up once in a while like bringing back the electric light parade with the paint the night.

I liked the smells of California better but I like the pictures of world better either way it's a fantastic ride

i think DCA should have kept SOC while WDW did SOW. California is to big to give one place to do it justice. thats why its called Disney California Adventure, and not worlds adventure

Disneygirl1212
Disneygir1212... I think they should have SOC on one side and SOW on the other so you can pick which one you want to go on..is that a good idea ?? .

Both are good, just thought the world should have had the Grand Canyon in it.

We have never seen the California one but we did have the chance for the first time to see The World one and my Husband and I and our 6 year old Daughter were blown away!!!!! It was amazing. So thrilled we could give our daughter that experience.

I loved the California version but can't wait to ride the World version so I can see Sydney my home city :)

I prefer Soarin over California. They could always update by adding some new destinations.

don't remember being wow'd at WDW. it I love the California version. Rode it twice so far. it's so peaceful and they have added scents.

In my opinion they are both great versions. To me its the ride that I love. Feeling like your flying, having the smells to make it seem more real.
