    What country would you add to Epcot

    Hi Guys I wondered if anybody had any ideas for new countries to be added to World Showcase.

    Before anyone gets started this isn’t intended to be a rant against what’s there or anything like that but just a simple what would you add if you had the chance to add another country.

    My choices would be:

    Brazil – South American fun could include a rainforest attraction, cool Latin music, maybe an Amazon boat ride or Indiana Jones Adventure type attraction.

    Polynesia – An area not a country I know but could be a great addition. Luau type show, smoking volcano (a la Mt Prometheus in TDS) possibly with a thrill ride enclosed, maybe a Polynesian themed dark ride, laid back vibes and great food.

    Australia – Maybe better suited to Animal Kingdom but could make an interesting addition to Epcot as well – Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Attractions could be a glass bottomed boat ride over the Great Barrier Reef, an Aboriginal culture show or something themed to Australia’s love of sport.

    The Caribbean – Again another area rather than a country. Light hearted fun with a Caribbean flair – attractions could include a small world type boat ride around the islands (could also work in Polynesia) a steel drum show or a variation on the glass bottomed boat ride from Australia.

    India – Taj Mahal and other classic architecture (red fort, floating palace etc). Attractions could include a bollywood ride / show (lots of colour and catchy music), a Jungle book ride (think splash mountain but with jungle book scenes – floating down the river with Baloo & Mowgli, through King Louie’s temple etc)

    Russia – Planned for ages but would be a great addition. St Basil’s cathedral and other Kremlin landmarks. A dark ride based on Russian mythology or possibly Russian history, sit on a troika and travel through Russian scenes with icy chills and balalaika music.

    Your India proposal sounds good, but I'd hesitate to do a Jungle Book ride. I'd prefer to keep Epcot as grounded in the real world as possible.

    A Bollywood show would expose many of us to something we often avoid or regard as silly.

    Russia...

    The Mother Land could fit most promisingly where African Outpost is now.
    There's a lot of green back there to represent Red square and that proposed Bells of Change ride.

    Russia...it's a nice touch and would increase the awareness of that country espescially considering that for many Americans Russia is considered a backwater...sides it would look cool to see the Kremlin done up in the borderlights

    Russia is the most likely, but I would like to see Brazil, India, Egypt and Greece myself.

    This I wrote awhile back on the subject

    How about Monaco? You could use the cars technology from the DCA to do a cool car race.
