The American Adventure

The American Adventure

The American Adventure is a 30 minute stage show located in Epcot’s World Showcase. It showcases key moments in the history of the United States of America using film, music, and animatronics. It’s one of our favorites and something we see almost every trip.

When you get to the show building a Cast Member will take you to an elevator since the entrance to the theater is on the second floor. The elevator is hidden behind a panel to blend in with the architecture so you will need their assistance. Once upstairs you can look around at the art work, visit the Hall of Flags, or view the Voices of Liberty’s performance if you arrive in time.

Once it is time for guests to be seated in the theater, a Cast Member will come and lead you to the wheelchair accessible seating. The area leading to theater is a large ramp. The accessible seating is located on the back row of the theater. If it is not too crowded you can choose where you would like to sit. If there are several people needing wheelchair seating the Cast Member will help seat everyone.

The seats are like most every theater show at Walt Disney World. There are empty spaces to park your wheelchair with companion seating located by them. The theater is huge and there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. If we are allowed to choose our seat though we usually try to sit towards the middle. It’s just personal preference. 🙂

The exit is located to the left of where you are seated. If you need to leave at any time before the show is over you are free to do so. The exit is a long, carpeted ramp that leads down to the first floor of the building. There are areas where it levels off so the ramp isn’t too steep. I don’t have any trouble wheeling myself down. The exit doors lead back out to the World Showcase so there is no need to take the elevator again.
