Our travels take us to The American Adventure, where we’ll visit the updated show and take a look at what else is going on around the Pavilion.
The biggest project going on is also one that’s kept closest to the vest. It’s expected that Epcot’s Club 33 lounge is headed upstairs above The American Adventure in the space that was used for the Chase Lounge during the Food and Wine Festival prior to this past year. Supposedly there will be a strict “no photography” rule once it opens, so we may never see what’s inside.
Inside, The American Adventure show reopened in late February after a refurbishment that brought digital projections among other upgrades.
The Voices of Liberty continue their performances that are typically scheduled in the afternoon inside the rotunda. Currently, their performances begin at 12:20pm, 1:05pm, 1:50pm, 2:35pm, 3:20pm, 4:05pm, and 4:45pm.
It’s worth taking a look around the room prior to the show:
Disney Imagineers created a lot of the artwork and it’s hard not to feel inspired to start some more blogs while reading over the various quotes.
The 30ish minute American Adventure show begins every 45 minutes starting at 11:15am and continuing until the last show begins at 9pm.
The show, which boasts a 1,000+ seat theater, is one of the most comfortable experiences at Epcot.
And it’s looking fantastic with upgraded interludes, lighting adjustments, costumes, and more:
You’ll also find a new video montage towards the end of the show and an updated rendition of “Golden Dream.”
There’s not much to discuss on the menu front.
I would call your attention to “The American Dream,” which is a surprisingly delicious mixture of Strawberry and Blue Raspberry Slush along with vanilla soft serve.
If you missed my Liberty Inn update, then I review just about everything that’s new in this post. That Cobb Salad is, surprisingly, worth seeking out.
Block & Hans, out front on the right side of the Pavilion, continues switching out its bottled beer choices. M.I.A. Brewing’s Tourist Trappe Triple is still my favorite beer of all time on its name alone.
Funnel Cakes remain surprisingly popular, including what must be a high-end selection in the $11.50 Cookies n’ Cream Funnel Cake that’s served with a rectangle of ice cream on top.
If I was going to list my top five favorite Walt Disney World additions from the last five years then this set of bathrooms in the back right of the Pavilion would be near the top. Prior to this installation, in addition to the Norway addition, bathrooms around World Showcase were pretty scarce.
Woody takes up residency for the Flower and Garden Festival, which just ended.
I thought I would be done with these updates by now, but we’re exactly half way.
Finally, this is what the Joffrey’s kiosk is serving on the left side of the Pavilion.
While I think we all miss the Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps, there’s plenty of patriotism to be found in The American Adventure for those that take the time to enjoy the Voices of Liberty and see the show.
