    As much as I want all the pavilions to have attractions I will take a new one without an attraction over a no new pavilions. Also with France and UK getting new attractions just because it doesn't open with a new attraction doesn't mean it will never have one. This is all very exciting stuff.

    no, it really DOES mean it will never have one... Phase 2 plans rarely ever happen... If it ever does get an attraction it will be so far down the road we may never see it... I would prefer them not build a new pavilion until they have a comprehensive plan that includes an attraction, rather than a chep Brasil themed gift shop and QS location...that would just be pathetic...and kind of insulting to the country they are representing....

    I don't mind the countries without attractions. If the pavilion was immersive, architecturally impressive, had good food, unique merchandise and some good street entertainment I feel like it would be a win. :shrugs: of course I would prefer a brand new well themed Brazil E-ticket but we haven't had a new pavilion since what? the 1980s so I will take a representation of South America in the world showcase thanks even if it's rideless... for now.

    I can't think of any places that she would fit besides, AdventureLand, FantasyLand or possibly somewhere in DAK. I'm postulating the Tiki space as well.

    Personally I'd love either Russia, Greece, or Egypt.

    Egypt would be spectacular, and the attraction possibilities are boundless. Not that it would be my first choice but they could easily squeeze in Indiana Jones.
    I'd also be in favor of India or Thailand.

    And a high-caliber table service option for the America Pavilion!

    Given the current political climate I'd be stunned if we got a Russian pavilion.

    I think Thailand, Spain, Greece, Brazil/Argentina/Colombia are the best choices. (crosses fingers that Australia will go to Animal Kingdom).

    They could/should do so much with it. Burgers, wings, steak sandwiches, hot dogs for lunch, full Thanksgiving dinner, BBQ, Lobster, Crabcakes, Tex Mex, whatever the hell they eat on the Left Coast for dinner

    If we're going to include the food I ate in Alaska this summer, reindeer sausage pizza and salmon.

    Well, that's the thing - and part of the reason the concept itself of World Showcase is so problematic these days.

    I don't think I need to comment about why Russia would not fly - Disney would not touch that with a thousand-foot-pole.

    Greece is bankrupt; I don't think there will be any money coming from them to build a pavilion any time soon.

    And Egypt is such a political hotbed and shifting regimes right now, I can't see that, either.

    It's just not the 1980's any more. The world is in such a hyper-political state right now - that shows no signs of slowing or changing whatsoever - that the choices of what to add are very, very limited. Not to mention, the concept of "cultural appropriation" itself is so controversial these days it's just shocking they are going to add a new country, at all. There is no way the current cultural shifts would allow Disney to get away with it.

    India, Israel, Spain, Equatorial Africa, and Thailand would be my picks

    EDIT: Also South Korea
