According to Disney’s web site, “The American Adventure took Disney Imagineers 5 years to complete. The beautiful building in which it is housed … [takes] design cues from the classic Georgian style of the late 1700s, Colonial Williamsburg, Independence Hall, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, and the Old State House in Boston.
The facade of the American Adventure Pavilion is made of 110,000 bricks handmade from Georgia red clay, aged for an authentic look and feel. Its central rotunda is approximately 35 feet high, with its dome adding another 10 feet. The pavilion itself encompasses an expansive 108,555 square feet!
The American Adventure’s theater can accommodate up to 1,024 Guests.”
Ben Franklin and Mark Twain guide guests on a journey through America’s history with the help of 35 audio-animatronics figures which include representations of Susan B. Anthony, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Jefferson, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Teddy Roosevelt.
The theme song for The American Adventure is “Golden Dream”. It gets its biggest push at the end of the attraction, but it has also been heard in Epcot’s entrance plaza since opening day! If you want to see a fantastic tribute to this patriotic song, click this link to YouTube. It is an excellent testimonial to Walt Disney World’s “American Adventure”!
