April 10, 1988 – The Attraction America Sings Closes in Disneyland

“Yes folks, that was America’s first popular song! And that’s what this show is all about: America’s music.”

On April 10, 1988, the Tomorrowland attraction America Sings officially closed in Disneyland. Open since June 29, 1974 and taking the place of the GE Carousel of Progress, the attraction featured over 100 anthropomorphized animals taking guests on a history of popular music in America. The show was narrated by Sam the Eagle, whose narration is often interrupted by a weasel. After the attraction closed, many of the characters were added to the Splash Mountain attraction.
