Red Car News Boys (Disney California Adventure)

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Trolley comes down Sunset Blvd. carrying NEWS BOYS. They sing as it makes its way toward Carthay Circle.)

NEWS BOYS
California, here we come.
Right back where we started from.
Where bowers of flowers bloom in the spring.
Each morning at dawning,
Birdies sing at everything.
A sun-kissed miss said don’t be late,
(Don’t be late)
And that is why we can hardly wait
(Hardly wait)
To open up that golden gate.
California, here we come!

Extra! Extra! etc.

California!
Here we come now!
California!
Here we come now!
Let’s go!

California, here we come.
Right back where we started from.
Where bowers of flowers bloom in the spring.
Each morning at dawning,
Gotta love those birdies singing!
A sun-kissed miss said don’t be late,
(Don’t be late)
And that’s why we can hardly wait
(Hardly wait)
To open up that golden gate.
California, here we come!

Extra! Read all about it!, etc.

(Trolley arrives at Carthay Circle and stops. Doors open on JOHNNY.)

NEWS BOYS

And that’s why we can hardly wait
(Hardly wait)
To open up that golden gate.
California (California, California)

(Applause.)

JOHNNY
All right, fellas, you know what to do. Let’s sell some papers!

Happy days are here again.

JOHNNY
The skies above are clear again.

NEWS BOYS
Talk about those happy, happy days!

JOHNNY
So let’s sing a song of cheer again.

NEWS BOYS

(FEETS and TACKS lift SAL onto their shoulders.)

NEWS BOYS

This way,
Join the party!
Clap hands,
Here comes Charlie now!

(JOHNNY gets baseball bats out of the trolley and throws them to the boys. SHORTY gets on the stacks of papers stage left and waves his paper in the air.)

SHORTY

Don’t you know, everyone wants to laugh?

TACKS
My dad said, “Be an actor, my son,
But be a comical one!”

NEWS BOYS
They’ll be standing in lines,
For those old honky tonk monkey shines!

TACKS
Oh, you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite,
Or you could charm the critics and have nothing to eat,
Just slip on a banana peel, the world’s at your feet.

NEWS BOYS
Make ’em laugh,
Make ’em laugh,
Make ’em laugh!

(NEWS BOYS collapse on paper stacks left. FEETS jumps on stacks right and waves his paper in the air.)

(Applause. NEWS BOYS make general selling noises.)

KIP
Hey guys! Y’know, a lot of these headlines are about people who started out with nothing and made it big.

JOHNNY
Oh, hey, Kip’s right. Here’s a story about a guy named Walt Disney, who packed up everything he owned into a cardboard suitcase and headed out here to make his dreams come true.

FEETS
Good for him!

JOHNNY
Yep! Just goes to show — everybody who’s anybody started off as a nobody before they became a somebody.

NEWS BOYS
Huh?

JOHNNY
You know, like Thomas Edison?

NEWS BOYS
Who?

JOHNNY
Henry Ford…

SAL
Ooh ooh, the Wright Brothers!

JOHNNY
Exactly! They all had a suitcase and a dream.

Plenty of people, they started with nothing.

NEWS BOYS
Just a suitcase and a dream.

JOHNNY
They packed up their cases and went to new places.

NEWS BOYS
With a suitcase and a dream.

JOHNNY
They made this world into a place
Like you have never seen.
It’s like they hit the jackpot
On a slot machine!

NEWS BOYS
Yeah!

JOHNNY
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

NEWS BOYS
Got a suitcase and a dream,
A suitcase and a dream.
A suitcase and a dream,
A suitcase and a dream!

JOHNNY
You and me, we got our ideas.

NEWS BOYS
Other people got theirs too!

JOHNNY
So pack up your suitcase,
And start your dreamin’!

NEWS BOYS
The rest is up to you!

It don’t matter if you’re rich or broke.
It don’t matter if you’ve given up hope.
All you need is a little drive,
To make your dreams begin to come alive!

KIP
Hey fellas, Walt Disney didn’t come out here all by himself. It says here…

(MICKEY MOUSE enters the trolley from behind. He carries a suitcase and stands in the doorway.)

KIP
Mr. Disney traveled west with just a few bucks to his name.
Along the way, he met Mickey Mouse,
And the world will never be the same!

(MICKEY wanders out of the trolley and looks around.)

NEWS BOYS
He got a suitcase and a dream,
A suitcase and a dream.
Suitcase… and a dream!

(NEWS BOYS shake hands with MICKEY and pose. Applause.)

FEETS
Hey, you’re the mouse Kip was just reading about. It says right here, you’re gonna be the next big thing!

MICKEY MOUSE
Gosh, really? That sure would be… swell!

KIP
Wait a minute, fellas. He just stepped off the trolley. How do we know he’s got what it takes to be the cat’s meow?

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
Hey! He’s a mouse, etc.

JOHNNY
Only one way to find out — show us what you got, Mickey!

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
Yeah, show us, etc.

MICKEY MOUSE
Who, me? Aw, gee fellas. I dunno.

JOHNNY
Oh, c’mon. All these folks wanna see — right, folks?

(Audience cheers. NEWS BOYS lead MICKEY to stand on top of papers stage left.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Aw, gosh. Well, all right… Here goes. (Clears throat.)

It don’t matter if you’re rich or broke.
It don’t matter if you’ve given up hope.
All you need is a little drive…

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS
To make your dreams begin to come alive!

NEWS BOYS
Everybody’s got their ideas,

MICKEY MOUSE
And me, I’ve got mine too.
So I took out my suitcase and packed up my dream.

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS
Now it’s time to follow through!

NEWS BOYS
Got a suitcase

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS
And a dream!
A suitcase and a dream.

NEWS BOYS

MICKEY MOUSE

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS

JOHNNY
Hey Mickey, we can see you’ve got your suitcase. Now what’s your dream?

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
Yeah, Mickey, what’s your dream? etc.

MICKEY MOUSE
Well, let me tell ya.

I wanna be in pictures,
On the silver screen!
And learn to do some magic —

SHORTY
Do what?

NEWS BOYS
Now that’s a dream!

MICKEY MOUSE
I want to drive a steamboat,
And be the front page news!

SAL
Well, you’re gonna need to buy a suit!

MICKEY MOUSE
And wear some yellow shoes!

If you can dream it, you can do it.
You see, there’s really nothing to it.
Just take that dream and make it true.
It’s really up to you!

I’ll live inside a castle!

KIP
Just listen to him yak…

SAL
Why can’t he have a castle?

KIP
Okay… I take it back!

MICKEY MOUSE
Oh, I’ll get myself a dog,
And I’ll dream for all I’m worth!

FEETS
Where does dreamin’ get ya?

MICKEY MOUSE
The Happiest Place on Earth!

If you can dream it, you can do it.
You see there’s really nothing to it.
Just take that dream and make it true.
It’s really up to you!

KIP
Wait a minute…

No, it ain’t so easy
To make your dreams come true!

JOHNNY
You wind up sellin’ papers…

KIP
Like me and Johnny do-oo-oo.

MICKEY MOUSE
I don’t mind selling papers!

JOHNNY
Well, here’s your stack right here.

SAL
You know what we should call him?

NEWS BOYS

(MILLY the messenger enters with a telegram.)

MILLY

MICKEY MOUSE

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
What’s the scoop?, etc.

MILLY (reading)
Dear Mickey. Stop. Come to Walt Disney Studios at 9am tomorrow to audition for new film, Steamboat Willie. Stop. Thinking of you for leading role! Stop. Regards, Walt Disney.

(NEWS BOYS cheer.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Oh, gosh! I had a feeling this would work out!

You’ve got your own dreams,
And yours can happen too.

SHORTY
Like playin’ in the Series!

FEETS
And doin’ my soft-shoe!

MICKEY MOUSE
And while I’m living all my dreams,
I’m gonna meet a gal
Who’s sweet, and kind, and pretty.

(MINNIE MOUSE has entered through the trolley.)

NEWS BOYS
His one and only gal!

(MINNIE breaks through the line of NEWS BOYS.)

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
Hey, it’s her!, etc.

(MINNIE blows MICKEY a kiss.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Told ya!

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS
If you can dream it, you can do it.
You see there’s really nothing to it.
Just take that dream and make it true.
It’s really up to you!

MICKEY MOUSE
If you can dream it, you’re gonna do it!

(Applause.)

SAL
Hey, Mickey — it’s time to get ready for your big audition with Mr. Disney!

MICKEY MOUSE
Oh boy, I’ll say!

JOHNNY
You’re right, Mick! You gotta go after your dream and seize the day!

(NEWS BOYS cheer in agreement. JOHNNY shakes MICKEY’s hand. The others hug MICKEY during the next song.)

NEWS BOYS
Now is the time to seize the day!
Stare down the odds, and don’t delay!
Minute by minute,
That’s how you win it.
You will find a way!
Now go and seize the day!

(NEWS BOYS get back on the trolley. MICKEY poses out front.)

MICKEY MOUSE AND NEWS BOYS
Seize the day!

NEWS BOYS (ad lib)
Okay, c’mon Mickey, we gotta go, etc.

(MICKEY climbs aboard the trolley. Doors close.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Let’s go!

NEWS BOYS
We ain’t got a barrel of money,
Maybe we’re ragged and funny.
But we’ll travel along,
Singing a song, side by side.

MICKEY MOUSE
This is fun!

NEWS BOYS
Oh, we don’t know what’s coming tomorrow.
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow.
But we’ll travel the road,
Sharing our load, side by side.

(Trolley begins to go back up Sunset Blvd.)

Through all kinds of weather.
What if the sky should fall?
Just as long as we’re together,
It really, really, really doesn’t matter at all.

When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted,
We’ll be the same as we started.
Just traveling along,
Singing a song, side by side!

Just a travelin’, travelin’ along.
And we’re singin’, singing a song.
Side by side!
Side by side!

MICKEY MOUSE
Hiya, folks! Hi, everybody! My gosh, this is fun!

NEWS BOYS
California, here we come.
Right back where we started from.
Where bowers of flowers bloom in the spring.
Each morning at dawning,
Birdies sing at everything.
A sun-kissed miss said don’t be late,
(Don’t be late)
And that is why we can hardly wait
(Hardly wait)
To open up that golden gate.
California, here we come!

Here we come now!

(ARIEL appears on screen. Music changes to “Part of Your World.”)

ARIEL
I wanna be where the people are.
I wanna see, wanna see ’em dancin’.
Walkin’ around on those—what do you call ’em?
Oh, feet!

Flippin’ your fins, you don’t get too far,
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’,
Strollin’ along down the—what’s that word again?
Street.

Up where they walk, up where they run,
Up where they stay all day in the sun,
Wanderin’ free. Wish I could be
Part of that world.

(Music climaxes.)

Watch and you’ll see, someday I’ll be
Part of your world.

(Music changes to “Under the Sea” as SEBASTIAN appears on screen.)

SEBASTIAN
Ariel, listen to me—the human world? It’s a mess! Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there!

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake.
You dream about going up there,
But that is a big mistake.

Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor!
Such wonderful things surround you.
What more is you looking for?

Under the sea. 
Under the sea.
Darling, it’s better
Down where it’s wetter,
Take it from me!

Up on the shore, they work all day.
Out in the sun, they slave away.
While we devoting
Full time to floating,
Under the sea!

Hahaha!

(Music swells into a dance break for the fountains.)

Yeah!
Under the sea!

MARLIN
Oh, Dory.

DORY
Tooooo fiiiiind hiiiis sooooon.

MARLIN
What are you—what are you doing?

DORY
May be a different dialect. (Makes even slower whale noises.)

MARLIN
Dory! Dory, this is not whale. You’re speaking, like, upset stomach.

DORY
Maybe louder, huh? (Makes crazy noises.)

MARLIN
Don’t do that!

DORY
Too much orca. Didn’t it sound a little orca-ish?

MARLIN
It doesn’t sound orca. It sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard!

(DORY continues making whale sounds while a whale appears on screen behind them.)

MARLIN
It’s just as well. He might be hungry.

Don’t worry—whales don’t eat clownfish. They eat krill.

Whoa! Oooh. Wow, etc.

HAMM
Impressive wingspan!

WOODY
Oh, what? What?! These are plastic. He can’t fly!

BUZZ LIGHTYEAR
They are a terillium-carbonic alloy. And I can fly.

WOODY
No, you can’t.

BUZZ LIGHTYEAR
Yes, I can.

WOODY
Can’t.

BUZZ LIGHTYEAR

A dazzling place I never knew.
But when I’m way up here,
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you.

ALADDIN
Now I’m in a whole new world with you!

JASMINE
Unbelievable sights, indescribable feeling!
Soaring, tumbling, free-wheeling,
Through an endless diamond sky.
A whole new world!

ALADDIN
Don’t you dare close your eyes!

JASMINE
A hundred thousand things to see.

ALADDIN
Hold your breath, it gets better.

ALADDIN AND JASMINE
I’ll chase them anywhere,
There’s time to spare.
Let me share this whole new world with you.

ALADDIN
A whole new world.

JASMINE
A whole new life…

Made ya look!

(Scene changes to the Cave of Wonders. Music for “Friend Like Me” begins.)

GENIE
Oy! Ten thousand years’ll give you such a crick in the neck! Master, I don’t think you quite realize what you’ve got here. So why don’t you just ruminate whilst I illuminate the possibilities.

Can your friends do this?
Can your friends do that?
Can your friends pull this
Outta their little hat?

Can your friends go “poof”?
Well, looky here—haha!
Can your friends go abracadabra,
Let her rip!
And make the sucker disappear?

Mr. Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three.
I’m on the job, you big nabob,
You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend,
You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend,
You ain’t never had a friend like me!

Ah haha! Ah haha!
Ain’t never had a friend like me!

(GENIE finishes with a flashing “Applause” sign over his head. Music changes to “Touch the Sky.” MERIDA appears on screen.)

MERIDA
I am Merida!

(KING FERGUS appears on screen.)

KING FERGUS
Pretend I’m Merida. (Puts on a mocking voice.) “I don’t want to get married! I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen, firing arrows into the sunset!”

FEMALE SOLOIST
When cold wind is a’ calling, and the sky is clear and bright,
Misty mountains sing and beckon—lead me out into the light.
I will ride, I will fly, chase the wind, and touch the sky.

To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing

What’s around the riverbend?
Waiting just around the riverbend.

Oh, feet!

Flippin’ your fins, you don’t get too far,
Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’,
Strollin’ along down the—what’s that word again?

Up where they walk, up where they run,
Up where they stay all day in the sun,
Wanderin’ free. Wish I could be
Part of that world.

Part of your world.

(Music changes to “Under the Sea” as SEBASTIAN appears on screen.)

SEBASTIAN
Ariel, listen to me—the human world? It’s a mess! Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there!

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake.
You dream about going up there,
But that is a big mistake.

Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor!
Such wonderful things surround you.
What more is you looking for?

Under the sea. 
Under the sea.
Darling, it’s better
Down where it’s wetter,
Take it from me!

Up on the shore, they work all day.
Out in the sun, they slave away.
While we devoting
Full time to floating,
Under the sea!

Hahaha!

DORY
Maybe louder, huh? (Makes crazy noises.)

MARLIN
Don’t do that!

DORY
Too much orca. Didn’t it sound a little orca-ish?

MARLIN
It doesn’t sound orca. It sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard!

The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure (Disney California Adventure)

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Queue Safety Announcement)

SEBASTIAN
Hello there, my friends! You are about to go under the sea. So for your safety, please remain seated with you hands, arms, feet, legs, flippers, and fins inside your clamshell—and keep an eye on your little ones. I can’t be everywhere, you know.

(Spanish safety spiel)

(Guests board clamshells and enter attraction.)

SCUTTLE
Let me start at the middle. Wait no—what am I thinking? That’s a terrible place to start a story. I’ll just tell you how it ends. No, wait. I got an idea: I’ll start at the beginning. I was born from a small, blue egg. Wait, wait. Too far. My story’s not near as interesting as Ariel’s. You know Ariel—the mermaid? Ah, what a voice. What a beautiful voice. But let me tell you how that evil sea witch tricked Ariel’s voice away from her. Oh, this is a great story! First, Ariel fell in love with a human. Then, King Triton got all mad and told Sebastian the crab to watch over her. Then, there was lots of dancing and singing—caw! Caw! Well, that was fun. And then—oh, I’m getting ahead of myself. The story began when Ariel fell head-over-fins in love. Wait, no—it began when King Triton asked Sebastian to keep an eye on Ariel. Wait, no—it began when King Triton got all mad, and Ursula took Ariel’s voice and—whoa, this story’s getting away from me. Gotta slow down. I’m getting ahead of myself. This is a great tale. And speaking of tails, Ariel traded hers in for a pair of… um, What do you call those? Those little thingies that make you not a fish? Legs! That’s what this story’s all about. Oh, this is such a great story about how Ariel became a human. But that Ursula. Oooh, she’s so mean. “I’ll make you human if you give me your voice,” she says. And Ariel gets all filibustered, and don’t know what she’s signing. Wait. Hold your seahorses.

(Clamshells go “under the sea” into Ariel’s Grotto.)

ARIEL
I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty,
I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore.
You want thingamabobs? I’ve got twenty!
But who cares? No big deal.
I want more

I wanna be where the people are.
I wanna see, wanna see ’em dancing,
Walking around on those—
What do you call ’em? Oh, feet.

Flippin’ your fins you don’t get too far.
Legs are required for jumping, dancing,
Strolling along down the—
What’s that word again? “Street!”

Up where they walk, up where they run,
Up where they stay all day in the sun.
Wandering free,
Wish I could be, part of that world.

(Clamshells move to ocean floor.)

SEBASTIAN
Ariel, listen to me. Get your head out of the clouds and back in the water where it belongs. We got so much down here, there’s no reason to go up there! Don’t you understand, Ariel? This is where you belong! You may think the water’s always bluer in someone else’s lagoon, but down here is your home. Believe me, Ariel—the human world, it’s a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there.

Under the sea.
Under the sea.
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter,
Take it from me!
Up on the shore, they work all day;
Out in the sun, they slave away;
While we devoting
Full time to floating
Under the sea.

Down here all the fish is happy,
As off through the waves they roll.
The fish on the land ain’t happy;
They sad ’cause they in the bowl.
But fish in the bowl is lucky—
They in for a worser fate.
One day when the boss get hungry,

BIG FISH
Guess who’s gon’ be on the plate?

SEBASTIAN
Oh no!
Under the sea.
Under the sea.
Nobody beat us,
Fry us, and eat us in fricassee.
We what the land folks loves to cook;
Under the sea, we off the hook!
We got no troubles;
Life is the bubbles!
Under the sea.

FISH CHORUS
Under the sea.

SEBASTAIN
Under the sea.

FISH CHORUS
Under the sea. 

SEBASTIAN
Since life is sweet here,
We got the beat here, naturally.

FISH CHORUS
Ooh, ooh, naturally-y-y.

SEBASTIAN
Even the sturgeon an’ the ray,
They get the urge ‘n’ start to play.
We got the spirit,
You got to hear it
Under the sea

The newt play the flute,
The carp play the harp,
The plaice play the bass,
And they soundin’ sharp!
The bass play the brass,
The chub play the tub,
The fluke is the duke of soul.

FLUKE
Yeah!

SEBASTIAN
The ray he can play
The lings on the strings.
The trout rockin’ out,
The blackfish, she sings.
The smelt and the sprat,
They know where it’s at,
An’ oh, that blowfish blow!

(Clamshells move into Ursula’s cave.)

JETSAM
Poor Ariel. In love with a human… We sent her to the right place.

FLOTSAM
Yes. Ursula will help her.

JETSAM
Poor Ariel.

FLOTSAM
She swam this way. Said something about being in love with a human.

FLOTSAM
We sent her to Ursula.

JETSAM
Yes, Ursula has great powers. See for yourself.

FLOTSAM
Ooh, yes. See for yourself. Poor child. We told her that Ursula could help her and her prince be together…

JETSAM
Forever. Ursula has great powers.

FLOTSAM
So Ariel is with Ursula.

JETSAM
Wants to live happily ever after with her prince.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM
Happily ever after!

FLOTSAM
Ursula will help her.

JETSAM
Yes. See for yourself.

FLOTSAM
And Ursula’s powers are greater even than Triton’s. She’ll help Ariel all right.

URSULA
I admit that in the past I’ve been a nasty.
They weren’t kidding when they called me, well, “a witch.”
But you’ll find that nowadays
I’ve mended all my ways.
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch.
True? Yes.

Poor unfortunate souls.
In pain. In need.
This one longing to be thinner,
That one wants to get the girl—
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed.

Those poor unfortunate souls.
So sad! So true!
They come flocking to my cauldron,
Crying, “Spells, Ursula, please!”
And I help them—
Yes I do!

Beluga sevruga,
Come winds of the Caspian Sea!
Larynxes glossitis,
Et max laryngitis.
La voce to me!

(Clamshells climb out of the “water” as Ariel turns into a human. They move alongside the marsh.)

SEBASTIAN
There you see her,
Sitting there across the way.
She don’t got a lot to say,
But there’s something about her!
And you don’t know why, 
But you’re dying to try; 
You wanna kiss the girl.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My oh my,
Look like the boy too shy.
Ain’t gonna kiss the girl.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain’t that sad?
Ain’t it a shame? Too bad—
He gonna miss the girl!

Now’s your moment,
Floating in a blue lagoon.
Boy, you better do it soon,
No time will be better.
She don’t say a word,
And she won’t say a word
Until you kiss the girl!

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My oh my,
Look like the boy too shy.
Ain’t gonna kiss the girl.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain’t that sad?
Ain’t it a shame? Too bad—
He gonna miss the girl!

(Ariel sings as she stands with Eric. Ursula burns in the distance.)

ARIEL
Ah, ah, ah, etc.

(Clamshells move to finale room. Sea and land creatures dance. King Triton smiles. Ariel and Eric wave.)

SCUTTLE
As you can see, everything worked out swell for Ariel. Of course, sometimes I get a little confounded and confabralated, but otherwise I’m—what’s the word—nuts! Ah, it’ll come to me… But anyway, that’s the story of our little mermaid. Of course she ain’t a mermaid no more—she’s a pretzel now! I mean a princess… a human princess. Well, that’s the way I remember it anyway. Yeah… Where was I? Oh, right! And they all lived—now how does that go—happily ever after! They also all lived in a big castle, which ain’t so bad either! That’s my favorite kind of story—right? Am I right? I’m not such a birdbrain after all!

(Clamshells return to unload area.)

Hahaha, it was so good to see you! We hope you had a wonderful time. Step out to your left now. Hahaha, there you are. Hope you had a wonderful time. Now, please step out to your left. Goodbye!

(Attraction ends.)

(Safety announcements heard when attraction vehicles stop unexpectedly.)

SEBASTIAN
What’s this? You’ve come to a stop! Hmm, maybe it’s that sea witch. Listen to me—stay seated in your clamshell while I get to the bottom of this.

I bring good news! Your clamshells will begin moving immediately. Stay in your seats now.

Soarin’ Over California (Disney California Adventure)

(Preshow Safety Video)

PATRICK
Hello, and welcome to Soarin’ Over California. My name is Patrick, and I’ll be your chief flight attendant today. We’ll begin boarding in a few minutes, but first, I’d like to acquaint you with some important safety information. When the doors to your flight open, please take a seat and store all carry-on items in the under-seat compartment. This includes cameras, purses, hats, and of course, these little beauties. Next, fasten your seatbelts, inserting them into the buckle on your right. If smaller aviators don’t measure up to the height indicator on the seat, just put the belt through the loop in the center strap before buckling. Nice work pal! Soon you will be airborne, so if you or your little aviators have a fear of flying or of heights, you might wanna wait for your party at the arrival gate. Okay, let’s review: that is seat, seatbelt, carry-on items, safety strap, fear of heights, keep your hands and arms inside at all times—anything else…? Oh yeah, have a nice flight!

(Video ends)

Soarin’ Over California is now ready for immediate boarding. All passengers in gate A may now proceed to the aircraft. We will now continue our boarding process with all passengers in gate B. We would now like to welcome aboard all passengers in gate C.

(Guests move into theatre)

PATRICK
We are now conducting our final systems check. Please stow all carry-on items in the under-seat compartment. For your safety, remain seated with your seatbelt fastened during your flight. And watch your children.

(Spanish safety spiel)

PATRICK
Soarin’ to Tower: we are ready for takeoff.

(Attraction begins and ends)

PATRICK
On behalf of our entire flight crew, thanks for soarin’ over California with us. To unfasten your seatbelt, just push down on the red button on your right. Be sure to gather all your carry-on items from the under-seat compartment and exit to your right.
