“Nice work pal!” – Patrick Warburton Surprises Fans on Disneyland Soarin’ Ride. We may have lost Soarin’ Over California recently here at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, but over at Disneyland California Adventure, the ride continues. Only this time with a surprise for guests in the pre-show.

Patrick Warburton is an actor famous to Disney guests around the world for his Chief Flight Attendant character Patrick. Who does the safety briefing before take-off. Disney fans will also recognize his voice as Kronk from Emperor’s New Grove, and non-Disney fans will remember him from Seinfeld, or Joe Swanson in Family Guy, among many other credits.

For more than twenty years, Patrick has welcomed guests to Soarin’ attractions at Disney California Adventure park in California and at EPCOT in Florida with some “important safety tips” in a pre-recorded safety video before they take flight. But this time, he decided to conduct his final safety check in person before surprised guests flew through picturesque locations in California, including Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Palm Springs, San Diego harbor, Malibu at dusk and the energetic lights of downtown Los Angeles, before returning for a triumphant flight over Disneyland park. See how the surprise took flight!

“It’s just magical to see how beloved Soarin’ Over California still is after all of these years,” Patrick shared. “I can remember my first trip to Disneyland at the age of five and I continue to be a huge Disney fan, so to be part of a Disney attraction that has lasted this long has just been such a sweet and wonderful thing for me.”

“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!” 

All we can say is, “Nice work, Pal!”
