    Big giant tent structure that is shaped like an "L" that is between Canada and the UK in Epcot. For the Millenium Celebration it hosted several other countries exhibits not normally in the World Showcase and even a few "attraction" type things such as Jerusalem. The name of the actual building is the World Showplace. It's pretty cool inside and still used for private functions and the occasional public event too - the Steiff Teddy Bear and Doll weekend for example, or for the Disneyana convention.. mostly merchandise events.

    It's covered with sprinklers that come on before Illuminations becuase of the semi-temporary structure, in order to keep it from catching on fire from fall-out.

    I've continued to look for pictures of the Village, but to no avail. Although I saw it when I was there for 12-21-99 (AWESOME time!!!), I cannot find any of my pictures.

    I only was able to quickly go through there when it was open. I was with others and they had other plans. Here is a pic I found online searching of the exterior.

    Thanks, Jason.. I for some reason can find my pix of the outside, but can't seem to locate any of the interior.

    sorry...I don't have pictures...but i did absolutely love millenium village. Anybody else remember the Sweden exhibit with the four huge eggs for the seasons? But to answer the first post..yeah I have been in the jerusalem ride/movie and I liked it..but i found the whole moving theater concept to be really cool...I wish they either still had it or they used it in another ride.....but i guess that's what Soarin' is for!!
    P.S. FIRST POST!!

    I loved the Millenium Village, but did not get any photos! We stayed at the Boardwalk Villas when the Village was open, and I think I ate every meal in their. They had a variety of items from many different countries, plus they were smaller portions and less expensive. That was one of my favorite visits to Disney.

    Yes, rode the ride in March of 1999. It was OK, but was kinda tame due to the amount of older folks who rode. There was also a static option if I remember right. Then, again not too much about Jerusalem that lends itself to a motion ride. The screen was not that big and the seats were on a big bleacher kind of deal with a handrail. There may have been a couple levels, but wouldn't swear on it.

    As to the Village, I thought it was OK for being in a tent. The displays were OK. There was some sort of game show we participated in and some putting game too, that I can remember. What I liked the best was some of the guys from Saudi Arabia or Egypt (can't remember) that were writing persons names in Arabic. There was also a group presentation/quiz about the Arab world and I answered all the questions right, being the geography expert (loved those old National Geographic magzines as a kid ) and polyglot that I am.

    Hi all -this is my first post here after stumbling across you yesterday!

    Thank you so much for confirming my memories of the Sweden exhibit were not just created in my imagination - 2000 was the last time I visited WDW!

    I loved the Jerusalem ride and have a video of portions, but not being a geek I would have NO idea how to get them on the web. Somewhere, in my stacks and stacks of photos I have a picture of Mr. iwannabeminnie at the wailing wall and looking at the square tomatoes. His favorite portion was Scotland because he got to play golf!
    They call me "Nana"
