Exploring the Shows: Epcot

In the conclusion of our “Exploring the Shows” series, I’m going to take a walk around Epcot, and look at all of the 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, I’m afraid to say.  However, I have decided that I, at least, am going to check out the show the next time we are at Epcot.  I will write a review of the show after I see it.  Do you like it?  Please tell me what your thoughts are in the comments below!  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
Unfortunately, Impressions de France is another show that I haven’t seen yet.  I had all the best intentions of seeing this last time I visited, but alas, you know what happens with good intentions!  Again, this is one that I want to see next time I am at Epcot.

O Canada! 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 have to admit, with small kids I have never done the shows. I wish I could take advantage of all of these. Maybe in the near future we will. Great reviews!

    Thanks Kelly! I'll bet you could find a show to watch even with your young kids. The American Adventure is really good and it has a pre-show with the Vouces of Liberty, who do a really great job getting their audience to sing along. I think your kids would love it! Have fun, and thanks for commenting!

    O Canada is the only one I've seen. The others were on my list for this past trip, but somehow not a one of them was seen! Crazy!
