    I'm gonna go with the American Adventure. It used to be Norway, but Maelstrom is just old now, and needs some work. The American Adventure has the best story, music, and the audio-animatronics are still, in many ways, some of Disney's best.

    Attraction-wise, I'd say it's a close match between Maelstrom & the American Adventure. I do love the lift hill lighting effect in Maelstrom, but the various songs in the AA puts it slightly on top for me.

    Pavilion wise, I'd say China wins. I love the food, the store is fun to shop in (plus, it's much cheaper than Japan's store), the acrobat kids are fun to watch & Reflections of China is a pretty good Circlevision film.

    Each of the pavilions / attractions excite and intrigue me. The most fun are Norway / Maelstrom (especially the little drop), The American adventure and it's multimedia show, and Illuminations - the most brilliant spectacle on the planet.

    I voted 4-ways.

    Illuminations: I expect this to win. While I didn't get the full experience of this show, I did see it's biggest air shells from my room at Port Orleans, and even just that is quite impressive.

    Norway: CM babes.

    Other Pavillions: Italy and UK would also be on my list of the best countries there for having the best and most complete "show."

    Avoid WS like the plague: Despite all these, WS is not my favorite area.

    The American Adventure and Maelstrom are my two favorite World Showcase attractions, but I find Maelstrom to be a little more fun. I voted for Norway, although I think that Illuminations is pretty incredible as well.

    The American Adventure is definitely the highlight of the area. I think it does a justice to the showcase. It is wonderful without detracting from any of the other countries' showcases.

    Mexico, Norway, China and France all seem to have charm and entertainment value.

    Japan is a bit of a let-down. It just does not seem as wonderful. I think it needs a ride or attraction. I have never eaten at the restaurant there. I suppose I might feel differently if I had.

    Canada is OK. The highlight is the restaurant there. Perhaps the culture is so close to our own that it does not quite seem as magical.

    Oh my gosh, in my head I picture a ninja dark ride could allow them to do tricks and illusions with AAs that haven't been done before, provided they're willing to spend enough. And they sure as heck would need to spend more than they spent on Malestrom or El Rio!

    What a terrific idea for Japan, MickeyMania. A dramatic fantasy-based ninja dark ride has never been done before. The unique techno-illusions that could be produced would bwe quite rousing.

    The American Adventure is the finest show ever created for a theme park. It's amazing what it packs into 30 minutes.

    El Rio Del Tiempo is World Showcase's finest ride.
