That stinks :(

I couldn't possibly pick just one country either.

Canada for the scenery.
United Kingdom for their shops.
Japan for their food.
Mexico for El Rio Del Tiempo.
Norway for Maelstrom.
France for the Circlevision movie.
United States for the American Adventure.
And I like China, Morocco, Germany, and Italy also. I think each World Showcase country is special and great in their own way. Each country was perfectly developed and I think the themes and landscapes are breathtaking.

I agree, it soooo hard to chose . . .

Morocco for the hidden back area

China and Japan for the beautiful landscaping and interior of buildings

Mexico for the inside of the building actually makes you feel like your in
another world at some sort of a fiesta (and the kids LOVE
watching the glass blower!) :mrgreen:

Oh right - like one can really pick a favorite!

If I really had to it might be Mexico since it has that killer indoors night time feel which is really impressive. Plus El Rio del Tiempo is fun and relaxing

And Japan, China, Morocco, and Canada are close with their scenery. Norway's bakery is great [and can't forget the Maelstrom], and France's movie is outstanding. American Adventure does have the show - impressive. UK has the Beatles which is always a hit...

Only ones left are Germany and Italy - they are good but not as food and entertainment packed. Though Germany has the trains and Italy has the neat waterfront. Ok fine, I can't decide!

Oh man! Thanks G2-4T, you reminded me. I have no idea of how I could have forgotten. One of the best things about the United Kingdom, or World Showcase in that matter, is watching Tthe Beatles perform. I always have to see them perform once a trip. They are really great. We end up getting there about 45 minutes before the show starts so we don't have to stand in the back.

What about the white (person) statue in Italy. They are such a gas to watch! Once you start to watch, it's hard to leave - love the way they toy with the adults! :lol:

I read that the contract for the living statue performers was not renewed! :( Gee, I'm just full of great news with this and the Beaver Tail update. :oops:

That's the word on the street. More details were posted in another World Showcase forum a few weeks back...

Geez - I'm sorry, but how stupid could Disney be? These performers ALWAYS drew a crowd. They will be missed. Does anyone know who to contact to express my dissapointment? 1st Tapestry of Nations (or Dreams later on) and now this . . . what are they doin to EPCOT?! :evil:
