United States Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase

When you arrive at the United States Pavilion at Epcot you step back into America’s colonial past at Epcot’s American Pavilion where guests will enjoy classic American treats and architecture – and maybe even learn something new about American history!

No pavilion in the World Showcase is breathed through as quickly as this one (most guests walk right past it!), which is truly a shame as it features one of Epcot’s most highly rated shows – American Adventure!


American Adventure - is a 29-minute tour of American history hosted by Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain.

The adventure takes place inside the two story building in the pavilion.

This show blends Disney’s signature audio-animatronics with a projected film detailing the history of the United States from Plymouth Rock to the advent of the telephone.

You won't even notice as time passes by because of the great detail that is taken to give every theater guest a great experience.

There is also a wonderful, small museum that hosts various exhibits relating to American history.

The America Gardens Theatre – hosts a variety of live shows and concerts, including the Candlelight Processional, Eat to the Beat, and Flower Power.

Voices of Liberty – is a group of American acapella folk singers.

They perform both current hits and old classics.


TheLiberty Inn – is a much-overlooked quick-service spot with a lovely indoor dining area and tasty American fare that includes burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, salads, and desserts.

Fife & Drum – offers turkey legs, hot dogs, smoothies, and more.

TheFunnel Cake Stand – is a great place to enjoy one of these American carnival favorites with your choice of toppings.


Heritage Manor Gifts – is a shop that sells t-shirts, bags,candies, wine and other souvenirs.


The main building in the United States Pavilion has the illusion of being a much smaller structure. There are actually five floors in this building. It also houses a gift shop, museum and theater. #AmericanPavillion #WorldShowcase

Fun Facts

Even though the American Adventure building only looks two stories high, it’s actually five stories!

Disney Imagineers used an optical illusion trick called “forced perspective” to make the building seem smaller, as colonial architecture is rarely more than two floors tall.

The six statues on each side of the American Adventure theatre represent Individualism, Innovation, Tomorrow, Independence, Compassion, Discovery, Freedom, Heritage, Pioneering, Knowledge, Self-Reliance, and Adventure.
