    Gotta go with the American pavillion!

    They have GREAT apple pie ala mode and if you time it right you can watch illuminations from the first bench to the left of the stage. This is an awesome place to watch the show since some of the fireworks (the white comet looking things that shoot from the edge of the lagoon towards the middle) launch from about 10 feet in front of you.

    I've never been one to get all caught up in "heritage". I was born in America, I've lived all my life in America, I'm an American. BUT...on my second visit to the World, my wife and son decided to take a little nap at the resort, so I went to Epcot to pick up a bottle of wine at "my" wine shop (at the time, it was still the Schmitt winery). Now...seein' as how my last name IS Schmitt...and my heritage IS German...that trip, by myself, to the German pavilion, nearly brought me to my knees. I was going through the shop with the cuckoo clocks, and that took me back to my childhood. My paternal grandparents had a cuckoo clock in every room of their house. I was, once again, that five-year-old kid listening to those clocks, and hearing grandpa tell me about how they came from Germany with HIS family. I finally got it. It was an incredible...emotional...rush for me. I had to sit...just sit...and for just that minute, when I was deep in the German pavilion, I really was there... No matter how many Octoberfests I attend, or how many German festivals I go to...NOTHING makes me aware of my German heritage like being in that pavilion. That's why it's my favorite.

    Have to say how much I love the architecture in Italy, and the true bazaar-like atmosphere of Morocco

    we go to all of them but we seem to spend the most time in Japan - the boys love sushi and then I love shopping in the Japanese store - there's cool anime stuff there and we got Dragonball Z stuff there we couldn't find anywhere else. Like all the other pavilions there's plenty to explore if you're interested.......

    My favorite is UK, simply for the pub! The pub is a great place to hang out with friends.

    oooh...it may be easier to ask me which one of my children were my favorite.**


    Let's see...off the top of my head...

    Italy
    I like the cast members in Italy. They allow me to feel attached to my family's roots. They are very friendly, will answer any questions I have on Italy, and even help me with my pathetic grasp of the Italian language. I love stopping by here just to interact with the Italians!

    Japan
    Okay, I like the stores. Great shopping. Every time I visit this pavillion, my interest is renewed in wanting to go to the real Japan. There is just so much cool stuff to buy here!

    Morocco
    Love this restaurant! I love the design of the entire pavillion. Excellent all around, great bazaar design.








    ** i have no children

    always plotting, planning, and looking forward to our next adventure...

    I love Italy!
    I enjoy walking around that area so much! The living statues are always entertaining! Maybe I just really want to visit Italy & this is as close as I will be for a while!
