OK, since I'm heading down during Food & Wine, I'm just not going to have room to eat around the world. The last few trips I've realized there's so much at each of the pavilions I've never seen, so I think this time I'm going to "Do" The World -- see or do something at each of them. Some of the pavilions are easy, but others I need some help with:

Canada -- film (only seen this once) Any other ideas?
Britain -- ???
France -- film (haven't seen this in 15 years)
Morocco -- ???
Japan -- ???
America -- Voices of Liberty and American Adventure
Italy -- ???
Germany -- ???
China -- film (never seen this), exhibit
Norway -- Maelstrom (I would have, anyway)
Mexico -- Gran Fiesta Tour

Can anyone suggest things to fill in the gaps? I'm not completely opposed to food-based suggestions, but I will be there during Food & Wine, so...

Thanks!

Have you seen the film in Canada since it was redone with Martin Short?

Are you interested in trying the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure?

Britain -- World Showcase Players as King Arthur & The Holy Grail
Morocco -- Say Hello to Aladdin & Jasmine or catch a musical act from MoRockin'
Japan -- Gooooo Shopping!
Italy -- World Showcase Players as Romeo & Edna
Germany -- Visit Snow White or Try to convince a CM that Smurfs are Belgian and not German.

Another thing you can do in Canada is catch a musical performance from Off Kilter.

Enjoy your 'round the world in 8 hours or less. ;)

Also in the back of Britain is a garden w/ benches. It's a nice quiet place to sit (when the Beatles cover band isn't performing) or catch their performnce. They're quite good and I'm generally not a fan of cover bands.

Off Kilter is great in Canada - especially if the big guy who plays bagpipes is playing. I can't belive how good rock music sounds played on bagpipes!

Kim Possible is a fun way to experience any country that has it. I think my personal favorites are China & Britain (mostly because of the Easter Eggs - fortune cookie & golf ball). I've been to WDW a "million" times and noticed neat stuff doing Kim Possible I'd never noticed before.

Britain: try to hit the pub during one of the performances in there. We also like the butterfly garden behind the tea shoppe.

Germany: love watching the artists in the shops, sometimes they have an artist from Goebel there & they usually have a speciality artist in the store across the way. The kids will watch those trains for hours if they could! Also, the clock is pretty cool to watch when it rings.

If you are into museums, Japan has a small one in the back (might be closed to switch exhibits though?) & inside the Norway church is a nice mini Viking museum.

Thanks for the ideas! I'm still not sure what I'm going to do, but I've got a good list now!

I realize you already have something for China, but make sure you see the Chinese acrobats. They're excellent.

I know you havenít posted Italy yet, and someone posted the performing group already but I second that they are amusing and well worth your time!

In Germany, I love watching The British. What I like watching even more is the people around them that have a nostalgic look in their eye and seem to be transported to a place long ago when they watched the real Beatles perform. This is a piece of Disney Magic that I think is often overlooked.

I think a lot of people are generally moved by 'The British' in a way that a lot of other Disney Entertainment is unable to move you. You have to imagine that a lot of people, older ladies especially, have a very strong connection to the Beatles of old...

Next time you are there I recommend taking time to watch not only 'The British', but the crowd as well.
