American Adventure Re-opens This Month With A New Look And Sound

The American Adventure Attraction is one of the shining stars of Epcot's World Showcase Promenade. The centerpiece building, known as "The People's Mansion," with its 110,000 brick facade made from Georgia red clay, anchors not only this themed land, but all of World Showcase. Standing before the impressive structure evokes thoughts of this nations birth, and the pride of our founding fathers. The attraction inside is currently closed, but will reopen later this month with a new look, sound, and even a few new faces.

Within the People's Mansion Guests are treated to a journey through the history of the United States of America. 35 Audio-Animatronics figures, elaborate moving sets, and a giant screen that shows some of our country's most cherished works of art tell a tale of more than 250 years of discovery, war, peace, invention, and exploration. The best part of all is that your hosts for your time in the theater are none other than Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain (in audio-animatronic for of course). The iconic anthem of the attraction "Golden Dream" has a way of building emotion in even the most jaded of Disney fan.

During refurbishment the theater's audio and video programming is getting a complete overhaul with all-new state of the art digital sound and video systems that will be changed out right down to the screens and speakers. That stirring musical score will be better than ever with t all-new orchestration and re-recorded tracks making the most of the new digital state of the art audio system.

That's not all! While Disney took on the updates to digital, they also refreshed the shows grand finale with inspirational faces from America's more recent history. Newly-added American icons include individuals such as music composer John Williams, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and noted ballerina Misty Copeland.

I am so glad we visited this back in January of last year while it was still the original version. It had probably been 25 years or more since I had been to AA. My wife really enjoyed it more than she thought she would.
