World Showcase at Epcot is a kaleidoscope of nations that feature authentic architecture and backdrops celebrating cultural heritage, arts and entertainment. There are 11 nations in total, plus an African-themed Outpost. All are situated along a 1.3-mile promenade encircling the 40-acre World Showcase Lagoon.

Is Epcot worth visiting?
As with all the Disney Parks, Epcot is worth a visit. My favorite experiences: Test Track; Illuminations; and Spaceship Earth. Take some time to properly visit each country’s pavilions in World Showcase. Each one is staffed by people native to that country, and the entertainment is also from that land.
Is Epcot boring?
Epcot’s World Showcase is often considered boring, unless you like to drink around the world or do some snacking. For its size, it has one of the worst ride distributions in all of Walt Disney World, and more “educational films” than most guests will tolerate.
Do countries pay to be in Epcot?
Despite original intentions, most of the pavilions are not funded by their home countries. Walt Disney World intended for countries to pay for the construction and maintenance of World Showcase pavilions for a 10-year land lease period.
