As we reported several months ago, Disney World’s American Adventure closed for a multi-month refurbishment on September 19. 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.

The attraction was supposed to reopen on December 17 but missed that date. As of now, Disney has not revealed when the attraction will reopen but has given a brief statement on its website, which reads, “The American Adventure is currently closed for refurbishment. Please check back here for updates.
