From Inside the Magic:
According to Brazilian press, Disney may be getting ready to announce a major country pavilion addition to Epcot. Today columnist Monica Bergamo from Folha, one of the two biggest newspapers in Săo Paulo, reported this surprising information:
Brazil got a seat in a great international “forum”: Disney. Representatives from the greatest theme park complex in the world approached the federal government this week to announce they’ll include a Brazilian pavilion at Epcot Center, in Orlando (USA). The country will be featured alongside nations such as the US, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Canada.
Two ministers will assemble teams to help with the undertaking: Helena Chagas of SECOM (Bureau of Social Communication) and Fernando Pimentel of Development. They will provide information about Brazil to help the park build the pavilion. The government’s expectations is one of great return for tourism.

If true, this would be the first major expansion of the Epcot theme park at Walt Disney World in decades. Brazil has been featured at Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival. Thousands of Brazilian tourists flock to Walt Disney World each year on vacation.
Disney has not yet commented, so treat it as an unconfirmed report for now.
