Brazil would be a good choice. I've been to Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Vitoria, and there is some beautiful scenery and monuments. Churrascarias are becoming more common in the USA, but I have not been to one in the US that was nearly as good as one I found in Vitoria. I have not been to Brasilia, but, being a "planned" city, built from scratch as a capital city less than 50 years ago, it would be an interesting sight (site) in EPCOT.

I like the Foster's commercials but I hate the Beer. I love Australia but I like New Zealand better. Couldn't they just do a south Pacific Pavilion?

Puerto Rico!! HOOOOOOO!!

But seriously, I would love to see P.R. It could be pirates themed. I read that some of the sets in POTC were based on structures in Puerto Rico. I've personally seen buildings in P.R. where they still have cannons pointing at the water.

I think it could be awesome if it was indoors like the Mexican Pavilion. They could show the glowing water that is in parts of P.R.

Maybe a hurricane ride. :D

Of course I'm biased since I am puertorican.

I always get this guy I work with, because he's Puertorican. I mess with him when he says it's a great country to live in, I always say it would be if it was a country but it is a territory of the US..........He just sticks his tongue out at me. I never mean any disrespect....It's just that we all mess with eachother about something around here.

In terms of size and such, I think you'd have to go with India, Russia, Australia, or Brazil, but there are a ton of nations with interesting histories.

I think a non-political pavilion for a Middle Eastern nation could do us all a lot of good right now. Something with a little more substance than Morocco, though, or it would be pointless. Speaking of which, Africa is also severely under-represented.

I would have reservations about adding a Middle Eastern Nation. Essentialy they are all majority Arabic. Individually they all have fantastic buildings and histories however the overall feel of each country remains Arabic. We already have Morocco to fill this niche. Swap Morroco for somewhere further East?
Iraq perhaps ?? Ancient Mesopotamia superb :D . Possibly a very very hard sell though. :(
I think a lot of Middle Eastern Nations would claim to be enraged if they were associated to anything as American as Disney.

India's a sweet idea. Zimbabwe would be cool, but remember Africa is well represented over in Animal Kingdom.

What about Russia? The cold war's over and would be a good representation of that huge country.

Antarctica. :D

I say we replace that outpost with a new country. It'd be really nice to see that happen.

How about some Polynesian culture? OH MY GOD, WHAT AM I THINKING?! Where's Australia????

Speaking of millenium village, does nyone remember the motion simulator ride that was in there? What country was that in? Whatever that country was, I remember saying to myself that they could easily pull it off as a permanent one, if ever they decided to build a new country.
