5 Reasons We Love the American Adventure Pavilion at Disney’s Epcot

The World Showcase at Epcot is spectacular and one of our favorite parts of Disney World! As we walk through country after country and partake in the endless supply of food, drinks, shops, and cultural settings, we find ourselves drawn to one pavilion specifically – the American Adventure Pavilion. Here are five reasons why we love the American Adventure Pavilion at Disney’s Epcot!


1 – Patriotic and Proud

The spirit of America comes to life at the American Adventure Pavilion located in the middle of the World Showcase! We are always in awe of the grand and majestic building that holds the American Adventure show, Regal Eagle Smokehouse, and more. The red, white, and blue flags, the stately columns, the fountain, the clock tower, the golden eagle, and all the special scenery exudes patriotism! Maybe it’s just us, but we feel like the sights and sounds at the American Adventure Pavilion provide us with an excellent reminder of how proud we should be to be standing on American soil.

2 – America’s Past in the Present

In the Rotunda of the American Adventure Pavilion, you will hopefully have the opportunity to catch the Voices of Liberty performing. This a cappella group sings patriotic music, which echoes beautifully when inside the American Adventure building underneath the dome. Their attire and their song choices provide a sweet reminder of America’s past. Step up your patriotism a notch and visit the theater for the 30-minute American Adventure film, which typically follows the Voices of Liberty performance. Outside of the building, fun musical series take place in the American Gardens Theater and Gallery, such as Garden Rocks Concert Series and the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Thankfully, with all of these other performances offered, it’s easy to find something entertaining and worth the time!

3 –  American Cuisine

Get ready to eat some delicious all-American-style food! If you are looking for a simple and tasty snack, you’ll want to stop by the Fife and Drum Tavern, a snack stand. Fife and Drum offers turkey legs, popcorn, soft-serve ice cream, and slushies. Don’t forget the all-American funnel cake at the Funnel Cake cart. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it! Finally, be sure to check out the newest addition to the Epcot counter service lineup, Regal Eagle Smokehouse. When it comes to food, nothing is more American than barbecue, and this new restaurant is a HUGE upgrade over Liberty Inn. Check out our full review by clicking here.


4 – Art of Disney!

Since 2019, Art of Disney has made its home in the American Pavilion. You can now shop for paintings, limited-edition prints, cels, figurines, and the Disney Classic Collection. Be sure to check it out!

5 – Kidcot!

A fun spot in the American Adventure Pavilion is the Kidcot Spot, located at the exit of the Heritage Manor Gift Shop (near the restrooms). Let your children (or adults!) enjoy a moment to sit down and color a free ziplock souvenir that will allow them to collect stickers from each of the 11 countries around the World Showcase.

With so much to look at, taste, and experience, we find it easy to love all the American Adventure Pavilion has to offer. We’d love to hear about your favorite experiences at the American Pavilion!

We have had a long time love affair with Disney. We love the magic and the memories we've made at Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. From lodging to dining to Genie+ we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us.
