He is visited by Benjamin Franklin, who walks up stairs and across the room toward Thomas Jefferson. This is a landmark for Imagineering. The story continues to tell important pieces of history through pictures and audio-animatronics.
After the invention of the camera, the rest of the presentation is on film. The Imagineers used a multi-plane camera, invented by Ub Iwerks, in the backgrounds of some scenes. The screen for the film is the largest rear-projection screen in existence.
The show culminates with the theme song Golden Dreams. The presentation lasts 30 minutes and runs throughout the day.
