    There are currently five expansion pads open for new WS pavillions.

    There's a lot more space around than you might believe.

    And to answer the question, Spain was supposed to go next to Germany -- where the temp area for Food and Wine was set up. Israel was supposed to go between France and Morocco.

    Were you joking? You can't be saying that they are locating the Israeli Pavilion next to the only Islamic nation at WDW? I REALLY don't think that is going to work.

    I think Equatorial Africa was expanded and morphed into the Animal Kingdom. Personally I think with Africa so well represented in The Animal Kingdom and Busch Gardens over in Tampa adding an Africa pavilion in Epcot is pointless and a bit African overkill. Add in some countries would be great, I would think Russia would be fantastic as would Greece, Australia, and Spain.

    Russia would definitely be a good choice.

    I'd like to see Egypt. Seeing the pyramids rising above World Showcase would be really cool.

    Put in a vote for me for Greece as well.

    Egypt is a great idea. Though I think a country from Southeast Asia would be interesting. Australia...Um?

    All of those three pavillions were very much official "Coming Soon" attractions and signs (complete with artist renderings of the pavillions) used to grace their respective intended spots around World Showcase promenade when EPCOT Center opened in 82.

    Interesting. Could some one point this out on a map?

    I don't have a map to scan. But if memory serves me right, they are located near the African-themed snack bar, next to Germany, between Italy and the USA, between Morocco and France ... there's one more I can't picture ... but I know there are definitely five open. That's from WDI.

    From the satellite image on Google it looks like there is an open pavillion between Mexico and Norway.

    Looking at Google:

    Plenty of space between Mexico and Norway for a comparably sized pavillion. One huge or 2 small ones where the "Outpost" is. Decent sized space between Germany and Italy. Either side of Morocco has a pretty comparably sized space, and of course where the Millienium Pavillion is could fit something else.
