ABC Wednesday: "I" is for International

"I" was a tough letter for me... so rather than choosing an object or single location, I've expanded things to be a whole bunch of locations - sort of. The World Showcase at EPCOT in Disney World is an INTERNATIONAL experience where you can visit many "countries" all in one place. Each "country" is sponsored and staffed by the actual country represented, so they try to be authentic where possible. You can visit eleven countries in total: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, the United States, Japn, Morocco, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
I can't afford to visit all of those places at once (or any time soon), so until then I get my international experience two hours away and don't have to suffer through a trans-Atlantic airline flight. :)

I used to work at Disney when it first opened (dated myself there didn't I?_ I love Disney...this is the second post I have seen...not what I would have expected for "I" which makes it all the more intriguing!
