Your favourite country at Epcot..

I was watching our DVD from last year and strolling around Epcot at night just taking in all the atmosphere from various countries..I think certain countries do it for me than others..But if I had to pick just one that is my favourite then I'd pick
Mexico..I love the shopping area and the aromas of spices that they sell, then of course a Margarita from La Cava and just sit people watching is so relaxing..So which is your favourite and why.?..Here's me enjoying my drink with my son pondering how long is this drink going to take..lol..

Cheers! As much as I love Mexico, my favorite is France. A lovely movie with A/C, Les Hailles, Chefs de France not to mention my all time favorite Disney drink the Grey Goose slush. I just love the shops there, my rolling pins came from there. It's also a nice place to catch Illuminations!

Lovely picture of you and your boy, Watchmaker. My favorite used to be Mexico. But last trip, we wandered around Morocco, and it is my new favorite. Love the market place feeling of it.

You can't ask me to pick just one, that's mean! Mexico and France are probably my top two.

I seem to hang out in America a lot for Voices of Liberty and the American Gardens theater!

I love the UK area - the pub, street, shops, and music.

But yikes how can I not like any of them really? biggrin

Love them all, but the two that stand out to me most are Japan and Morocco. Japan when it's hot. I can spend hours in that store! And Morocco when it's cooler. The architecture, tile work, and bazaar feel are incredible. Honorable mention for Mexico in all temperatures (La Cava del Tequila, that is all).

I like the UK. I love watching British Revolution and checking out the Beatles merchandise in the shop.

If the Canadian pavilion would start selling butter tarts, I'd spend more time there waiting

Like Sam Eagle, I would say the World Showcase is a tribute to all nations, but mostly America.

For me, I've always liked the France pavillion. There's just something about the way it was built. It feels like an actual street in Paris with the Eiffel Tower in the distance. France always prides itself on its food so there's plenty of dining options. Serveur Amusant (The chair stack balancing act) is pretty cool to see.

I love the Moroccan pavilion. It's so beautiful! And we'll be trying out Restaurant Marrakesh for the first time this upcoming trip!

Top 3

Mexico
Japan
Morocco

I can't really narrow it down to one and I don't think this is the order I would rank these 3... I also love Mexico for the atmosphere. Japan, well there is Sake lol and Morocco is great for strolling and feeling like you are getting lost.

I love ALL of the pavilions! Probably the least interesting to me is America for the same reason many of our friends across the pond seem not to prefer UK. I live here, so it's not exactly exotic! laugh

But my favorite...oh geez that's tough. I think in total, probably France. The pavilion is interesting and beautiful. Their Christmas story and decorations are great. I get sick watching the movie, but you can't beat the food here! Plus, I love these guys...

Funny enough ( apart from a beer and a chat with Carl at Rose & Crown ) I find UK pavilion kinda boring also..But then again where ever I go on holiday, I love to get involved in other countries stuff...I remember my first visit abroad to Spain, every second pub had a English name, Black Bull, King George, etc..And blackboards outside restaurants advertising Sunday roasts with Yorkshire puddings...Aarrghh gaah ....

Not sure I can really choose a favorite. They all have something special; however, my favorite cocktail is the grey goose slush in France!

Anywhere the food is good. However, I'll give a slight advantage to Morocco because I love Spice Road Table so much.

Another vote for Morocco here. I love the sights and sounds there. But, like others have said, honourable mention to Mexico, can't beat wandering round the market in the cool night air.

Now if only UK pavilion had a little Scottish theme ( Now that we have 56 Scottish national party seats in Westminster ) I think it would add a little colour...lol...

Watchmaker, we just might be very distant relatives. I'm also a descendant of the Royal Stewarts and my father's name is Robert Bruce after the man himself. Family Reunion time!!! biggrin
