Tuesdays With Corey – The Italy Pavilion

The Showcase originally opened with nine countries: Mexico, China, Germany, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan, France, Un

Tuesdays With Corey Explores The Mexico Pavilion

Me, I often like to make my way around the promenade clockwise beginning with Mexico. I just love the look of the 36-foot high pyramid that greets you as you cross into World Sh
