I love World Showcase at Epcot :yes: I love the entertainers the most.
Which country holds your favourite entertainment?

Maybe you love WS but it's the shops or eateries that you enjoy the most. I'd love to know what makes you happiest on this side of Epcot.

I miss the masquerade show in Italy.

But honestly I love it all. Every show, movie, shop and eating place has something great to offer.

My new favorite has to be the hat lady in the UK pub. We've spent hours in there. I kid you not.

We love the British Invasion! My DW goes completely bananas. You'd think she was back in 1965! :mental:

There used to be a group playing in Italy that I really liked called "Nova Era". I think they're playing at Downtown Disney now. Classical music with a twist!

But of all the shows we've ever seen at Epcot, there was one that stood head and shoulders above all the rest. Granted it was at the American Gardens theatre but I've still got to mention it. What was it? It was this:

Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance!

Saw it three times there and wished I could have seen it more!

Tom, those guys were amazing. The last part was incredible. I would have tripped all over myself. I have heard of the Lord of the Dance. Can't believe they were at Disney.

Yep, they were. And you're right, they were amazing. The show was actually called "The Best of Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance". My DW and I just accidentally happened to catch it the first time. The next two times we made sure we got the dinner package with reserved seating to the show. Front row seats from then on. :thumbsup:

If you get a chance you really must see the show. It's absolutely unbelievable!

Tom (:macwave:... and Ronan Hardiman's music is superb!)

Oh goodness Tinker, that was back in 1999 and 2000. It was sometime during the summer but I don't remember specifically what month.

If anyone's interested, I just heard that Flatley would be returning to headline a couple of performances later this year in Ireland.

Tom (:macwave:... still love that show!)

I hang out mostly at the Rose & Crown. Great atmosphere. Tons of people to talk to.

LOVE Off-Kilter. When I was there last week, they've added a fiddle player and Mark, the usual bassist, was out. They had some other guy that sang and had a great voice. British Invasion is hit-or-miss for me. I like to see them out of "tradition" (I have a pattern of what I do when I'm at Epcot) but, if they start to miss too many words ("Paul" royally screwed up "Yesterday" the past time I saw them) I'm outta there.

I always have to see "Reflections of China" and "Oh! Canada"

Wow. I've not seen Off Kilter in some time. I didn't realize they'd changed up members of the band!

I really like Reflections of China too. :yes:

Same here. The song she made up about myself and DH was hilarious :lol:
