The amount of rides and attractions at Walt Disney World as well as the international Parks is overwhelming, to say the least. Within Disney World’s four Parks, there are so many fun, thrilling and enjoyable experiences that Guests can choose from. And with so many rides and attractions, there’s bound to be an issue or two once in a while.

At EPCOT resides one of the most historic attractions in all of Disney World, The American Adventure. While not thrilling, this experience is incredibly-detailed, informative, and entertaining. However, the attraction loses its serious tone when one of the most famous American Presidents loses his pants.

See the funny photo below in a tweet from Tammy Tuckey (@TammyTucky):

As you can see, Teddy Roosevelt’s belt broke, allowing his pants to fall down mid-show. This is far from the first time we have seen malfunctions happen at the American Adventure with one figure even getting stuck during the show. Hopefully, Teddy got his pants back and a better belt!

How They Did It

A feat of entertainment, engineering and aesthetics, The American Adventure took Disney Imagineers 5 years to complete.

The stunning building in which it is housed was intended as a “people’s mansion,” taking design cues from the classic Georgian style of the late 1700s, Colonial Williamsburg, Independence Hall, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and the Old State House in Boston.

Pivotal moments in history appear and disappear seamlessly through the use of a massive computer-controlled movable device. Ten different sets are stored under the stage and are moved forward or backward on cue by this American technological marvel.

It truly is a show like none other—just like the country that inspired it!
