No matter what time of year you go, Epcot's World Showcase offers guests the opportunity to a stroll through 11 beautiful and unique pavilions representing different countries around the world.

The holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort is an extra magical time of year, and one of our favorite places to celebrate is Epcot.

The American Adventure – A Slice of Americana in the Middle of World Showcase

Perhaps you're guilty of this too - often as I'm strolling through World Showcase and come upon The American Adventure Pavilion I just keep walking. Sure, sometimes I stop for a funnel cake, but for the most part I just walk on by.
