I know you aren't trying to be a smarty, but while the UK includes Wales, Ireland, and Scotland, the pavillion is very British centered!!!
I would like it if they incorporated the surrounding pavilions into a countries of the United Kingdom display area.
I also would love to see Greece, Russia, Switzerland, Brazil or Argentina, and Australia represented.

"but while the UK includes Wales, Ireland, and Scotland..."
Actually the UK is England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland is independent and not part of the UK.

Okay this is one I haven't heard about yet. What train ride are you referencing, and do you have a link to anything about it or was it just a rumor that was started here?

I'm curious too

The established legend was a "Matterhorn" or log flume based on mt Fuji...but it never got traction because of Kodak's presence

Early Imagineering artwork from before Epcot Center opened showed a bullet train section in the Japan pavilion. It just looked like a display to me, but some fans saw it as a ride.

The actual attraction that was supposed to be part of the Japan pavilion was "Meet the World," the same history of Japan attraction presented in a rotating theater at Tokyo Disneyland. The show building was built, but not the show. "Meet the World" was never put into Epcot, and it has closed at Tokyo Disneyland.

Consider the possibilities. What a hoot. But you could get good cigars and rum there.

There you go. You can make it from the front gate to Japan pavilion in 5 seconds flat.

While I would LOVE to see some new additions, there probably isn't any because the company wants to "make you feel immersed." If we're all squished together, then I guess it's not really magical as much.

I would love to have Brazil, Egypt and Isreal. I can't see Russia today based on their Politics.

This is a good start.

These will not happen given the current political climates:
Russia (which is a shame but understandable for now)
Cuba

Brazil, South Africa, Australia, and India are all great choices however, I would like to see what the South Africa pavilion offers before I would take it. There does need to be some type of African country though.

Pacific islands also sound nice.

Is it wrong that as I read people's suggestions for new countries, all I really consider is what food I can get at whatever restaurant they put in?




Brazil - gotta be a Brazilian Steakhouse, right? So that gets a thumbs up from me.

Poland (full-disclosure: I am 25% Polish) - Kielbasa? pierogies? potato pankcakes? Yes, please.

India - no thanks...they'd have to quadruple the number of restrooms in world showcase.

Australia - maybe. some BBQ and Foster's? That works for me.

Russia - Borscht? Strogonoff? Nah...I'll pass

South Pacific - Nope. Too much seafood and coconut.

South Africa - negative. there's already african cusine at AK/AKL that I avoid

Cuba - Cuban sandwiches, of course, lots of rice....I'm 50/50 on this one.

Actually, Russia and Cuba would make fine additions to Epcot's World Showcase.

World Showcase is not about celebrating or vilifying any particular regime or leader. It's not even about the system of government.

Back when World Showcase opened, the real world had the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the so-called German Democratic Republic (Communist East Germany). World Showcase simply had Germany.

Relations between the U.S. and China only began to thaw a few years before the opening of World Showcase, when planning for EPCOT Center was already well underway. Diplomatic relations between the U.S. and China were established on January 1, 1979.

There's nothing wrong with a World Showcase pavilion showcasing a nation's traditional culture, popular culture, architecture, food, and so on.

I find it funny that someone is proposing that they build a fake Cuba in Florida...

A county 90 miles from key west that few Americans have legally been in since 1959

Also...the fact that the last person to slap paint on the stave church in Norway represents the last person ever to participate in construction in the showcase...

And that was 26 years ago...
I know it's all for fun...but don't waste TOO much thought on this.
