Disney Fans Just Got a HUGE Celebrity Surprise

By admin Mar16,2024

Disneyland has its share of iconic rides, being the OG Disney Park.

Soarin at California Adventure

You can’t deny that the classic versions of rides like “it’s a small world” and Pirates of the Caribbean hit differently on the West Coast, right? Well, we could probably say the same about Soarin’ Over California, which recently returned to Disney California Adventure for the Food and Wine Festival there. Well, that ride just got even MORE iconic thanks to a recent celebrity appearance.

Okay, so if you’ve ridden Soarin’, you’ve seen the video pre-show that includes a flight attendant named Patrick. Well, that flight attendant is portrayed by actor Patrick Warburton (who is also the voice of Kronk in The Emperor’s New Groove). Well, Warburton recently surprised Soarin’ riders by turning up AT the ride to give the safety presentation IN PERSON.


Y’all, we would’ve seriously lost our minds. He showed up in costume AND EVERYTHING. He’s been the voice and face of Soarin’ for more than 20 years, but to see him there in person, just WOW. Check out the video below of Warburton surprising fans.

Warburton seemed to be having a lot of fun with it, too. He said, “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!”

Soarin’ Over California

Soarin’ Over California is currently back in California Adventure for a limited time, so if you want to check it out, you’ll need to be there no later than April 22nd. After that, it will return to Soarin’ Around The World, where you’ll once more get to see the Leaning Eiffel Tower of Paris (if you know, you know). Soarin’ is also available at EPCOT in Disney World (which also recently had a run with Soarin’ Over California).
