EPCOT – The American Adventure – American Adventure Show

The American Adventure Show

Inside a large colonial-style building, guests are invited to watch the twenty-nine minute theatrical presentation, the American Adventure. The show takes the audience through a brief history of America, with hosts Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain. The attraction utilizes some of Disney World‘s best effects, including a huge cast of Audio-Animatronic figures. The script of this show is one of Disney’s finest and packs a lot of information in a short amount of time. The end montage, Golden Dream, is remarkably sentimental and usually plays to a teary-eyed audience.

There is no height requirement for this ride.
