Tour of the Secret Parlor Inside Epcot’s American Adventure at Walt Disney World

As major Disney enthusiasts, I think that many of us would like to say that we know every inch of Walt Disney World property.  Sadly there are some areas of the parks that are just off limits to day guests.  These special areas aren’t relegated to cast members. Oh no. Some of the most gorgeous spaces are reserved for special events held inside the walls of Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

Let’s talk about the hidden areas of Epcot shall we?  Some of you have heard about the sponsored lounges which are attached to the Epcot pavilions. We brought you a behind the scenes look at the secret lounge inside of Mission Space as well as the Siemans Spaceship Earth Lounge.  Today we are going to take a look at a private area atop the American Adventure Pavilion in World Showcase.  This space is not a sponsored lounge, but a private area used for special events such as meetings and wedding receptions.  It’s called The American Adventure Parlor.
