We’re excited to announce the end of a refurbishment for one Epcot attraction that has been closed.
America World Showcase Pavilion
The America Pavilion is located between the Italy and Japan Pavilions. If you’re walking from Epcot’s front World Showcase entrance, it’s halfway around the World Showcase lagoon. However, if you’re looking to save steps, take the World Showcase boat from the front of the lagoon to Morocco.
When entering from the International Gateway, walk toward France. Here, you’ll find EPCOT’s largest theater, quick service dining options, a beautiful pavilion with the beloved Voices of Liberty singers. Take a look at everything this pavilion has to offer HERE.
At the American Adventure, guests feel America’s inspiration to greatness in an inspiring retelling of America’s history. In this dramatic attraction featuring 35 Audio-Animatronics figures, digital rear-projection images on a 72-foot screen and patriotic songs, you’ll watch America’s story unfolds.
Also, guests witness landmark events like landing of the Mayflower, the Boston Tea Party, the winter at Valley Forge, the penning of the Declaration of Independence, the Civil War, and the Great Depression. It’s amazing to see the engineering that take place to flawlessly move the story along.
Refurbishments are necessary to keep all rides functioning properly. Over time, the rides begin to show signs of wear and tear or even malfunction.
Most of the time, these attractions will undergo refurbishment during less busy times of the year. Most commonly, rides like Splash Mountain and Kali River Rapids will close after the New Year when the weather is cool (no one likes being cold and wet).
Last month, we announced the closing of the American Adventure HERE. It closed on September 19th, but at the time no date was given for reopening. It’s just been revealed the attraction reopens to guests on December 17!
