Tiny Tourist Attractions

Epcot's World Showcase, Orlando, Florida

Just in case you didn't believe the infectious refrain of "It's a Small World After All," the folks at Disney decided to actually build a small world. The 11 nation-themed pavilions of Epcot's World Showcase span 1.3 miles along a lagoon and feature architecture inspired by countries including Mexico, Norway, China, and Morocco. But Epcot's World Showcase is no mere collection of monument-al knockoffs. Here, the countries come to life in themed restaurants, rides, movies, and performances by actual citizens. And unlike it's teetotaling neighbor the Magic Kingdom, the World Showcase actually serves booze. That's something people of all nationalities can toast to.
