In the conclusion of our “Exploring the Shows” series, I’m going to take a walk around Epcot, and look at all of the Epcot shows that you can see there.
For our purposes, a show is something on screen or on stage, that you watch as you would watch like a movie or play.
The American Adventure
This show, featuring 35 Audio-Animatronics characters, recreates some of the extraordinary things, and introduces us to some of the incredible people that have helped make America the greatest place in the world!
Captain EO Starring Michael Jackson
My family has never been a big Michael Jackson fan, so I’ve never even seen the show. In all honesty, despite my good intentions to check out the show, I just can’t excite myself enough to see it. Do you all like it? If so, let me know in the comments, and thanks!
Circle of Life
The Circle of Life is a short film that I would classify as a documentary about how humans in general often cause a lot of chaos with the environment, and what we can do to improve that.
Impressions de France
Impressions de France is a show that we don’t see very often, but nonetheless, it is one that I really enjoy watching. I had seen it as a kid, but forgotten about it until a couple of years ago when I made a point of seeing it and realizing that it was a great movie! I highly recommend seeing it if you haven’t.
Next on our list is O Canada!, quite simply, my favorite show in all of Epcot. I love Martin Short as the narrator; I love looking at all the majestic beauty of Canada; I love the “pre-show” with the trivia that the CMs do before the movie starts; and most importantly, I love the Circle-Vision 360 movie, with all of it’s breathtaking photography and scenery — and I can see it all from any angle.
Reflections of China
Next to O Canada!, Reflections of China is another Circle-Vision 360 film, and I enjoy it immensely. When I watch the movie, I am transported back to a day gone by, when China was much more rural, more peaceful, and tranquil. I really like Reflections of China, and can’t wait until I get to see it again.
I hope that you have enjoyed my mini-series about the various shows located at the parks. What have I missed on your list of shows that you can’t do without seeing? Do you have some shows on your list that I didn’t consider to be shows? Tell me about them in the comments please! Thanks for reading!
I’ve never taken advantage of Epcot and enjoyed it to the fullest or seen any of these shows. My husband and I plan to spend much more time at Epcot next time we travel down to Disney. Our kids loved the time we spent there last year and we are looking forward to heading back next year. Thanks for the sneak peek into the Epcot shows and we will be certain to check some out next time!
