Land: Future World  |  The Land Pavilion  |  FastPass: Yes

Catch a hang glider ride and soar over California on this realistic motion simulator. You board on three rows of seats which then rise in the air in front of a giant IMAX projection dome. The feeling of flight is amazing as you glide over sights such as the Golden Gate Bridge, San Diego Bay, Death Valley, and Napa Valley. There are no sudden drops or movements but it’s still a thrilling ride with an explosive ending as you watch fireworks over Disneyland!
