Favorite World Showcase Pavillions

Post by mdk010 » May Fri 13, 2011 11:46 am

Just thought I would get a poll of everyone's favortie World Showcase countries. It was hard to choose because they are all so good. I chose based on which "country" I spent the most time in.

My favorite has to be Japan. Great store, food and entertainment. It is also my favotire location to catch Illuminations.

I love them all and am very fond of Italy, but I had to go with Great Britain.

Gotta go with Mexico.

On a hot summer day...or a rainy one...you can be "outside at night" in Mexico without the fear of getting mugged or killed. Not to mention you can get margaritas there.

For me Norway is perfect; fun attraction, film, giftshop, nice restaurant, Little museum, good bathroom, pastry shop, beautiful landscape, and a great spot for Illuminations. It seems to be less crowded there during the show and the ground seems to be a little sloped so I can stand back where it's less crowded and still see over people at the rails. Really nice lighting at night but then they all look great at night. Plus I can look across the lagoon from there at the Swan and Dolphion my favorites. I do love them all.

Well I guess that I am just biased. My favorite is Italy. I am half Italian and since I cant travel to see my family there, I can get some of the sights and sounds every year in the World.

I *LOVE* that I can eat a Baci and drink a Lemoncello while I am there.

this was a tough decision. I went with Germany! just overall appeal. Japan was a close second. I would love for them to squeeze in Switzerland between Germany and Italy (only fitting since there is room and it actually sits between them!) we'd have to move the trains.

I went with Mexico but it was a hard choice!!
I love the little market, and the Grand Fiesta Tour. It is a great place to stay cool and dry.

Hehe will it was actually *REALLY* close between Italy and Japan, because I always buy stuff in the food shop at the Japanese pavilion as well. For a while, it was the cheapest (YES, CHEAPEST WAS AT DISNEY) place to get my sushi rice. I never did quite understand that.

So, FBI then? Neato. Where are you from? My dad was from the area around Florence (Firenze)

I went with Great Britain. I really think it has to do with the layout. You walk straight through it and can get fully immersed in it while most of the other ones are just a cut-out off the main walkway around the lagoon.

Ah, very very cool. My brother marries a Jersey-ite, but she doesn't have any Italian roots. But still, their first child is named Massimiliano (we just call him Max). He is such a sweety. I love my nephew, and he is a HUGE Star Wars fan, so I brought him back some SW stuff from Disney earlier this year. :)
