I would say Germany! It has the new Caramel shop which I could live in, and I love their wines & chocolates.

Oh god...Let me think...

I guess I would have to say Mexico. Love the ride and the ambiance is cozy and festive. I'd love to grab a drink and a bite at the St. Angel's Inn (is that its name?).

Shopping, a nice boat ride and dinner...

I would agree - I am dying to check this place out, and could live on an island for 6 years with nothing but caramel corn. And cupcakes.

I would choose Japan. It has Mitsukoshi and that's all that matters.

haha good one!
I think Norway.. because of Schoolbreads and Maelstrom. And I guess I could eat at that restaurant there.

It was a tough choice though.. I almost said UK because Rose and Crown is there!

UK, because it has the good chocolate, and a pub. Also its all really funny to me being form the UK anyway. I swear the workers in shops put on exaggerated fake British accents.

This is a really hard one. I'm having trouble between UK, Norway and Japan. That doesn't even mention Canada, Morocco and France. Just goes to show how great World Showcase is. I'll pick Norway, but don't hold me to it.

Agreed! Mexico was the first pavillion I thought of. It has the amazing artwork, statues, ambiance. . .
and not to mention the AWESOME RIDE!!

Funny, for the first time in my life I made a decision not based on food. . . .

Love this question! Had a good discussion with my husband! Wink

I say UK, just because I love the culture, the food, the beer!

My husband's vote is Mexico!

Notura, I like Italy for the food! But you're right, there's not much to do there otherwise.

Mase, I agree with you. I think America would be my last option. Mind you, I haven't seen their attraction movie since I was a kid so I don't remember how entertaining it is.

I like the "which country comes last" question. I haven't tried Via Napoli so I don't know if I should give up Italy. America doesn't have that much to give up.

I was never a big fan of Moose Head. There are lots of good beers from Canada though. Any other recommendations?

I'd be torn between Mexico and the UK.

As much as the UK pavillion is an exagerated cliche, the area round the back is a great place to sit and relax. If the band are playing, that's even better and the patio at the Rose & Crown is a great place to watch Illuminations.

Mexico for all the reasons already stated by others.

I was sitting with my mom in one of those benches in that beautiful garden (I believe that's where you're talking about) and all of a sudden Alice comes outta nowhere and starts talking to the flowers...

MAGICAL.
