Live the Dream of Flying
In the grand Disney tradition, Imagineers pulled out all the stops to make fantasy reality, bringing the feeling of flight to life using a 180-degree, 80-foot IMAX projection dome and aerially captured footage that simulates the graceful motion of a hang glider.
Spectacular new digital projection technology lifts the sensation to new heights of brilliance. Thrill as you're raised 40 feet in the air, engulfed in the stunning panoramas and swept from one scenic locale to the next!
