The American Adventure is the main attraction of the America Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase. It is an elaborate stage show featuring the American story from colonization, to revolution, to modern success.

This show is told many times throughout the day utilizing a combination of audio-animatronics, film sections, and more. Ben Franklin and Mark Twain take you on a journey through the history of the United States through a tapestry of some of its most iconic moments, good and bad.

This is the most elaborate audio-animatronic stage show ever created by Disney and it has remained relevant to today.

Thrill Rating 2/10

This show is relatively tame, but may not be fully enjoyed by younger children due to its length and intensity.
