How did Epcot choose countries?

The plan for World Showcase was presented in July 1975 in a ceremony at the Contemporary Resort. Disney invited dignitaries from Iran, New Zealand, Belgium, Venezuela, The United Kingdom, Romania, The Philippines, The USSR, Israel, Mexico, Italy, Greece, Germany, Denmark and Australia to listen to their concepts.

Is Epcot worth?

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.
