    On our upcoming trip I'm determined to spend more time exploring all of the pavillions in the World Showcase. We've visited Epcot several times, but I feel like there's so much to explore and see in World Showcase that we've missed.

    Can you all share your favorite things to do/see in each of the countries. Favorite photo ops as well. TIA!

    Morocco is my favorite pavilion to explore. The King of Morocco sent his personal workmen to EPCOT to build the pavilion and the workmanship is amazing. See if you can get a lunch or dinner reservation at Marakesh. The food is delicious and the entertainment is great.

    We also love...
    The British Revolution and Off Kilter (bands in the UK and Canada pavilions)
    Kringla Bakery in Norway
    The Voices of Liberty in America
    The Mitsukoshi Department Store in Japan
    Sommerfest in Germany

    Norway and Canada are my favorites. Norway has the AMAZING Kringla Bakery and Maelstrom, which is a neat ride. Canada has Le Cellier and Off Kilter, which is reason enough to visit.

    Every time we go to epcot we like to try a new food in each. The kids have tried a different candy in each. We have even done:

    -beer from each country
    -bought a christmas orniment from each country
    -learn the same/new word in each country


    But one of our favorite things to do is eat fish and chips back in the english gardens of United Kingdom. We love to take our time back in the countrys and just relax.

    Pick a Pearl in the Japan pavilion is by far my favorite thing to do. It's addictive. My husband is already saving up to purchase oyster after oyster until he finds that coveted black pearl! :rotfl2:

    We did the pick a pearl in Japan last trip. I let my DS choose a pearl which we had set in a pendant as a gift for my mom. He ended up choosing one of the grey ones. This time we're going to let DD pick one (her birthday is in June, so pearl is one of her birthstones). I'm thinking I might get one of those Cinderella carriage holders to put on a chain with the pearl.

    Good luck to your husband in finding that coveted black pearl!

    This past trip the kids and I decided to share one chocolate bar from each country, we would ask the CMs from each country what was their favorite, and then we would rate them from a scale of 1 Mickey Head (worst) to 5 (the best we have ever tasted). My kids and I had a blast trying the different chocolates (the CMs had a great time debating over which chocolates where their favorites, at least they seemed like they had a great time :rotfl:). And whatever country had 5 Mickey heads, we would all buy that chocolate bar for ourselves. My kids have already said that that is going to be a must do for us now :goodvibes.

    Other things we love to do in WS are:
    - Watching British Invasion while enjoying a beer from U.K (at least DH and I enjoy this one, the kids...well not so much).
    - Doing the Agent P Missions (this will really allow you to spend a lot of time in each country).
    - Watching the Voices of Liberty perform
    - Enjoying a Cloud Berry Horn at Kringla Bakery in Norway
    - Enjoying anything in the Karmel Shop in Germany :cloud9:
    - Riding Maelstrom and the Mexican ride
    - Eating at the different TS restaurants around WS (of course not all in one trip)
    - Watching O'Canada and The American Adventure shows
    - Watching all the different street performers in each of the countries.

    Make sure to watch the short films. Even The Spirit of Norway should be viewed at least once. And I think that Impressions de France is the best movie shown in Epcot. You heard me, Soarin'.
