New American Icons Have Been added to Epcot’s American Adventure Which Will Reopen Later This Month


The American Adventure located in Epcot’s World Showcase is slated to open on February 15th after closing for refurbishment.  Guests visiting the attraction later this month will notice some exciting changes including the addition of a few notable icons.

The American Adventure brings together a moving stage, 35- Audio-Animatronics and a giant screen that together tell the story of the rich history of the United States.  Additions to this amazing line-up will include music composer John Williams, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and ballerina Misty Copeland.

In addition, the team at Epcot is hard at work converting the attraction to an all-digital projection system and installing a new screen and new speakers to make the attraction look and sound even better than before.

But, that’s not all. The iconic anthem “Gold Dreams” has also be re-recorded and features a brand new orchestration that brings beloved music and lyrics to life in a way that really resonates.

This is just one of the many exciting changes coming to Walt Disney World in the weeks and months ahead. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest in Disney World news, refurbishments and updates.
