    Arrow If you could add one nation...

    Well, Africa, Israel and Spain may never have been built, but rumors of new attractions (Canada) and pavilions surface all the time. I got to thinking (we warned you about that, Lou)

    If you could add one nation to World Showcase, what would it be, and what type of themeing/attraction could you envision?

    Well, I would say Australia, but I've often heard rumors of an Australian area being added to AK and i think there is a lot more potential there.

    For architectural beauty, how about Russia? The cold war is long gone so now we don't have to consider them evil anymore. There is a rich cultural heritage there that could be explored (not to mention the vodka).

    New Zealand is hugely popular these days. with all the film makers choosing to shoot there, it would be fairly easy to get someone to capture that beauty. heck, isn't Power Rangers produced there now? Disney already has a connection!

    more than anything though I think the focus should be on getting more attractions created in the existing countries. there needs to be more than just shopping and food (don't get me wrong, I have no problem with shopping and food, but they do need a few decent attractions that aren't films).

    Australia would be good, Russia would surely stand out. I think both of those are great choices.

    Egypt, Cambodia (think Angkor Wat), and Fiji.

    I'm with you on this one, Loric... I think Egypt would be an incredible addition to WS. The possibilities for attractions are amazing... Pyraimids, Nile River ride, Sphinx...

    Will it ever happen? Likely not.

    Egypt or Russia sound good.

    Question though: Is Australia country or a continent or both? We're on North America but are in the US...isn't Australia like that with little countries?? (I swear I took Global Studies in 9th & 10th grades! Two year course! But I can't remember this!!!)

    Feeling foolish...

    How about Greece? I've been there before and the architecture, history, people and more are absolutely amazing!!! They could do like a large Parthenon, with huge statues, etc. and even an attraction I'm sure!

    Are the Netherlands a nation? Never was good in History. I'd like them and/or Ireland & Scotland. See, told you I wasn't good in history.

    I think that any nation that celebrates Festivus is a good addition!

    This is a neat thread!

    I love the ideas of Australia, Russia and Greece. Each has a rich history with lots of "icons" that would mark the territory so well in WS. I like Fiji too as a representation of a part of the world that is completely unrepresented in WS. Besides, I'm enjoying thinking of what the CM's would be wearing!

    I will also add Argentina or Brazil. A whole continent being pretty much ignored right now. Though there are times it seems like half those countries' populations are already visiting WDW!

    How about an Australia or New Zealand? I just heard from someone who returned recently that they are absolutely gorgeous (and great food, too!!)
