November 25, 1971 – The Circarama Film America the Beautiful Begins Showing in Walt Disney World

“She is a rich land, and a rare land. A fresh, and fair, land.”

On November 25, 1971, the 360 degree film (known technically as a Circarama film) America the Beautiful began showing in Walt Disney World’s Tomorrowland. It originally was shown at the Brussels World’s Fair in 1958, and was brought to Disneyland in 1960; it was reshot a few times, including once for America’s Bicentennial celebrations, and it eventually closed in Disneyland on January 3, 1984, and was replaced by American Journeys. The original Walt Disney World showing of the film lasted until March 15, 1974; it was brought back on March 15, 1975, and lasted until September 9, 1984.
