Though EPCOT is filled with so many incredible and unique things to do, few compare to the authenticity of its American Adventure attraction. This educational and entertaining show takes viewers throughout American history, featuring 35 audio-animatronics and an impressive 72-foot screen

However, the attraction is set to close very soon for a refurbishment.
