Fry On! #DisneyFood

Today it’s all about fries! Crispy, salty, deep-fried sticks of pure joy. Fries are great as a side, but even better when you can make a meal out of them! That’s right, a meal made of fries that are loaded with a variety of toppings and sauces, and Walt Disney World has quite a few spots that can make that happen. Let’s start with the original topper of the fry; Canada. Canada is known for their famous dish p Continue Reading

Tuesdays With Corey – The Italy Pavilion

So here we are again casually making our way around the World Showcase. If you’ve been keeping up for the past couple of weeks then you’ve been with us as we stopped and ate churros while watching a mariachi band in Mexico. We then made our way over to Norway and learned a little about Viking folklore. Our next stop was China where we admired and discussed the architecture. Next we hopped over to Germany where Continue Reading

Tuesdays With Corey: The Germany Pavilion

>Most everyone who comes to World Showcase at EPCOT has a favorite pavilion that they must visit during their trip. To some it may be taking in the romantic atmosphere of the France pavilion while sipping wine and eating a pastry. To others it may be a trip down south to Mexico listening to a Mariachi band, drinking tequila and playing with some maracas. For others it may be heading straight to one of the origin Continue Reading

As you round the corner walking away from Norway into China, the first thing that becomes immediately noticeable is the Zha Continue Reading

When Epcot opened in 1982, it brought us what was referred to as a “permanent World’s Fair” dedicated to the celebration of human achievement and technological innovation. But it also brought us the World Showcase, which gives us glimpses into the cultures of eleven different countries. The Showcase originally opened with nine countries: Mexico, China, Germany, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan, France, Un Continue Reading

Tuesdays With Corey Explores The Mexico Pavilion

Left or right? The question we often ask ourselves when we begin our way to the World Showcase. To the right, we have the United States northern neighbor Canada and to the left, we have our southern neighbor Mexico. Which way do you choose? 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 Continue Reading

Fountain Of Nations

Besides Spaceship Earth, one focal point in Epcot is the Fountain of Nations. The 180ft x 120ft fountain, located in Innoventions Plaza, opened with the park on October 24, 1982. At the opening, representatives from countries around the world traveled to Epcot with a container of water from their native land. The water was then poured into the fountain during the dedication. A total of 25 bodies of water represent Continue Reading
