The audience rotated around the fixed stage. In Tokyo Disneyland, their Carousel show (Meet the World) had the stage rotate instead. If the stage rotates it means there are smaller stages but more seats. In America Sings, there were larger stages but less seats.

Re: America Sings question!
I wonder why they wouldn't want to do an updated version of CoP starting with 50's and then going up through the turn of the century. Maybe something the would truly reflect an idea of how the near future (30 years from now for example :P ) would be.

Oh man ... I'm feeling a bit nostalgic .................
Yankee Doodles remembers when to make these songs ring true
People came from every land to make these tunes for you
So we should all remember

Remember how big "ghetto blasters" were in the 80s???
I brought my silver colored 2 foot wide 4 speaker system .. and plopped myself center front row in Jan 1988.
Greatest thing I ever did. Threw in a metal tape that is as good today as it was brand new (1988). It's my master recording .. and I made another tape that I regularly play, now and again.
It was a cassette recorder that had a low end of around 20 hertz. I had it on my lap ... and each time the theater went into motion .. the recording picked up the low end of the rumbling of the theater in motion. The revolving carousel ring sat on a set of railroad type tressles .. with wheels attaching the massive 200 foot wide rotating ring. And like any railroad tressle .. the wheels picked up the imperfections in the guide rail .. so when the theater was in motion .. you could pick up the ever-so-subtle bumps along the ride. I treasure my recording of the live show ..... the final mix of the soundtrack for the attraction is different than the final mix for the 33rpm album.
Anyway ... Burl Ives/Sam would start talking .. and his voice (as the theater was in motion) .. would go from right to left .. as the theater turned.
If you are very "sensory" like me ... it's these subtle things that make up a Disneyland ride experience. Especially any musical type attraction.
