    Possible ideas for the World Showcase

    This idea came from the "Wonders to be gutted" thread.

    One thing really cool about the Malestrom is that it is actually educational about Norway culture, while also being a really fun ride. I belive there are a lot of oppurtunities for other attractions like this in the World Showcase. Chinese (kung fu warriors, dragons etc.) and Japanese (samurai,ninjas etc.) cultures are full of adventurous concepts that I would like to see the World Showcase have. Maybe a POTC type ride based on one of those two countries legends or folktales. Many fairy tales originated in Germany, maybe Germany could have a Little Red Riding Hood dark ride. I am very interested in the folk tales and legends of other countires, and I wish countries outside of Norway in the World Showcase would have them.

    Re: Possible ideas for the World Showcase

    Funny you should ask. There is a great article from Jim Hill that described many of the ideas that were actually proposed for Epcot and World Showcase, briefly described below:

    Unrealized Epcot: Rides, shows & entire pavilions that never quite made it off the drawing board
    Jim Hill burrows through some 1970s-era Disney annual reports and unearths some seldom-seen photos & concept art for the Imagineers' very first attempts at Disney World's second theme park

    There was supposed to be a boat ride in Germany (the building is there.... it's HUGE) but it never happened and the show building is used for storage now.

    And the Africa "pavilion"....it's random. I would either like to see a fully developed, specific African country pavilion, or take it out completley and just put a new country in.
