Attraction typeShow

America the Beautiful was a Circle-Vision 360° movie attraction in Disneyland In California and Walt Disney World in Florida. The footage first shot in 1955 and ran in Disney Circle-Vision 360 film theaters.[1]

Circle-Vision 360 is a film technique that uses multiple cameras arranged in a circle. The viewing image is displayed on a large circular screen. The film's rendition of the title song would later be used in Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.

360 film technology was created and refined by Disney Legends Don Iwerks and Ub Iwerks in the 1950s.
