If you’ve been to Walt Disney World’s Epcot recently, you likely already know that the American Adventure attraction in the American Pavilion of World Showcase has been closed for refurbishment for about a month. Today, Disney Parks shared with us some of the changes that are being made to the attraction. Here is a quick rundown of what you can expect when it reopens this month:
- First, the film’s projection system is being converted to an all-digital system giving it much better video and sound quality.
- Next, Disney has added a number of new, contemporary characters to the show finale. Some of the new characters include John Williams, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Misty Copeland.
- Finally, the attraction’s theme song, “Golden Dream,” has been re-recorded with new orchestration.
The Epcot American Adventure attraction was originally slated to re-open on Wednesday, February 14th. The Disney Parks post today only says “later this month,” so one can assume it will be delayed a bit (otherwise, wouldn’t they just say “next week?” I’ll be sure to updated this post as soon as we know the new re-open date.
