I hope you have your passports ready because this year we will be traveling around the world! Each month, I will feature a quiz centered around one of the eleven pavilions located at Epcot‘s World Showcase. World Showcase has always captured my imagination and my furor for this area has only grown as I’ve matured. The more I explore and research the pavilions, the more I am amazed at the painstaking details implemented by the Walt Disney Imagineers. I once took each country’s pavilion merely at face value, often rushing through just to look at shops or catch a snack. Over the years, I have learned how exciting it is to look carefully at all the details afforded. By taking my time, truly using all five senses to experience each unique cultural area, I find that I walk away with a greater appreciation and an even deeper curiosity. My hands and brain itch to consult my trusted Epcot themed books and to scourer the internet in order to answer my unending questions. I hope you will join me each month as I continue on this exhilarating path of exploration.

Erin Stough has always loved Disney, but the magic of the parks truly captured her imagination during a mother-daughter trip in 2001. The obsession began and Erin hasn’t looked back! When she isn’t devouring Disney related books, Erin spends time with her wonderful (and patient) husband and super pup Milo.
