was born. Special attributes and emphasis
was placed on many details, like the pavement
in the park being shaded a particular color
of pink to accentuate the greenness of the
grass or the sidewalk colors to enhance
the overall cleanliness of the park; Epcot
was masterfully designed to impress, educate
and bring together the countries, and peoples
of the earth in hopes of bringing about

that depict the imaginative creations and
uses of technology which has taken the world
by storm. Located there are Imagination!,
Universe of Energy, Test Track, Spaceship
Earth, The Land, Innoventions, The Seas

In the World Showcase, there are eleven
countries represented with only nine at
the beginning. Canada, Mexico, China,

One of the most exciting reasons for going
to Epcot, besides the elaborate costumes,
colors, shows and countries, is the food

The architecture is spectacular, as are
the great costumes that the people wear,
since they have come here from their respective
country to help you appreciate and understand
everything they can possibly tell you.
And in each nation, the food is prepared
by native people using only the best and
freshest ingredients for your special delight.
The Mexican food is better here than anywhere
else, the French pastries are difficult,
only because before you even enter their
quaint shop, the most incredible aromas
are wafting through the air, the Japanese
and Chinese foods are extremely great.
The Canadian bacon will certainly entice
you into having a fantastic breakfast there,
with the coucous from Morocco better than
any restaurants in the area. The Norway
and German foods are absolutely delicious,
and oh the Italian cuisine is stupendous.
The United Kingdom and the American Adventure

we Americans can get the very best, it seems
that only the visitors from other countries
stop here, unless you don't enjoy tasting
the delicacies of the world. Try them
all yourselves and see. Or maybe the
best way is to sample food from all the
