American Adventure

Located in the American Pavilion, this thirty-minute show combines amazing animatronic engineering, film and song. You’ll join Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain in this elegant theater as they take you through the history of the United States. Tech lovers will be fascinated by the multiple animatronic historical figures, and history lovers will adore stepping back in time and meeting some of the United States’ most iconic men and women.

Parent Worry Note: This is the perfect place to get out of the heat and rest for a bit in air-conditioning, it’s also a great place for your kids to learn a little while on vacation. But if your children are restless and don’t like to sit still, you’ll definitely want to skip this attraction as its thirty minutes long and they might find it boring.

Final Note: Want to learn a little more about American history? Or maybe you just want to rest in some air-conditioning for thirty minutes. Then this is a definite must! But if you’re the kind of person who gets bored easily, prefers rides over shows, or hates to combine learning and vacation…you’ll want to skip this attraction for something more exciting.
