For years we have enjoyed our Disney Orlando trips, especially the day at Epcot. I can look past the long lines, crowds of people, expensive food to enjoy the exhibits, music and beautiful landscape. However, it is becoming apparent that Disney is more concerned with...More

I have visited this attraction dozens of times, and just this past week. It still holds up, but included a few updates to the film shown during the finale. Narrated by Ben Franklin and Mark Twain, it's a mix of very realistic, audio animatronics (think...More

Nice place to duck into from the summer heat, but the show is excellent for everyone. The singers that preview the show are very good. The show is old technology, but good. The end of the show has been updated with newer images.

My family finds this to be a wonderful show. It is a mixture of video and audio animatronics. In my opinion they've done a good job of balancing the good and bad of American history. The political extremes on both sides will probably be offended.

This is a wonderful show for all ages that tells a great story. Take the time to look for the amazing technology that it take to put on the show. Ben Franklin actually walks up the stairs and there are lots of other great features.

This is a patriotic themed show that has questionable accuracy and certainly skips a lot of diverse information. It is somewhat repeats the cliche history of you learned in gradeschool.

The story told by Ben Franklin and Mark Twain was walk through history. It was thirty minutes long after we waited for show time for twenty minutes. It was a combination of life like characters and scenery mixed with a movie. Mediocre at best! I...More

I enjoyed the show, but they never mentioned anything about Native Americans or the Spanish settlements out west. It was like America sprouted on the east coast and NOTHING existed out west. That needs to be updated.

The American Adventure is an attraction within Epcot (Disney World). It doesn't have anything to do with Six flags. I hope this helps
