America Sings was a former attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The attraction opened in 1974 and was located in the Carousel Theater in Tomorrowland. America Sings was a musical show featuring an Audio-Animatronics cast of animals dressed in historical costumes singing popular American songs from the past and present.

The show was hosted by a character named Sam the Eagle, who introduced each segment of the show and provided historical context for the music and lyrics. The show featured a variety of musical styles, including folk, blues, jazz, and rock and roll, and showcased the talents of the animators and designers who worked on the show.

America Sings was popular with guests and remained a beloved attraction for over a decade. However, the attraction closed in 1988 and was replaced by Innoventions, a technology-based exhibit that showcased the latest innovations in science and technology.

While America Sings is no longer at Disneyland, it is remembered fondly by many Disney fans and is considered a classic example of the creative and innovative attractions that were developed by Disney during the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the animatronic figures from the attraction have been repurposed in other Disney attractions, including Splash Mountain and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
