What If - My Version of Soarin' Attraction Logo Signs

Earlier in the week, Soarin' Over California at Disney California Adventure started to receive small update changes as it gears up for the new Soarin' Around The World version for the attraction as previously posted.

Some of the recent changes seen have been the signage out in front of the hanger as well as inside.

The logo displayed is pretty much the same logo found at EPCOT's Soarin' (they left out "Over California" because there isn't a reason to celebrate the spirit and heritage of California) attraction.

When Condor Flats became Grizzly Peak Airfield, the attraction signage for Soarin' Over California also changed. The new logo was given a woodsy feel to it in order to fit with the theme of the High Sierras of California

There was just one slight change that wasn't new, and that was the word "SOARIN'".  The word style of "SOARIN'" was lifted from EPCOT's version.  Disney fans immediately noticed and had mixed feelings about it.  For some, it didn't bother them, while others had wished that Disney came up with a more unique style.

Some even knew that the EPCOT style font was coming because some of the merchandise for "Soarin' Over California" was merchandise that could also be found at EPCOT. There was no distinction between the West and East Coast.

And so with the new Soarin' theming, I began to think that if Disney had created an entirely new logo to fit in with the late 1950's - early 1960's, what could it look like

Just some different style fonts used. Trying not to go overboard with style. There were other fonts that could have been used, I am sure, but I wanted to try and keep it simple. But at the same time, I still wanted to show some excitement that the attraction brings.
