The American Adventure Show
Ben Franklin and Mark Twain take you on a patriotic tour of U.S. history. A large cast of Audio-Animatronics characters includes Thomas Jefferson and Susan B. Anthony. Martin Luther King Jr. takes center stage in updated filmed segments. Famous events are recreated and famous Americans share their ideas. Don’t expect a critical view of history, however. The wide stage is easier to see if you don’t sit in the front. See Epcot Times Guide for shows. Indoor queue. “Voices of Liberty” may sing. Wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening. Reflective captioning. Allie’s KidTip: “Look on the walls for the statues.” Renovations to this attraction include an all-digital projection system, new screen, new speaker, and an updated finale that includes music composer John Williams, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and ballerina Misty Copeland.Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

I love this show! The scene changes are phenomenal! We visited this pavilion once on our Anniversary. The gentleman at the front door stopped us and said we had a phone call. We thought that odd but followed him to the phone. We received a phone call from Mickey and Minnie wishing us a very happy anniversary! After the call, he presented us with a certificate that we were at the American Pavilion on our Anniversary. What a wonderful souvenier!

Wonderful show. Puts a tear in my eye. Good place to rest and relax for awhile. When my daughter was younger she would take a quick nap in here.

Love seeing Voices of Liberty before the movie, and the end of the movie and song always bring tears to my eyes.
