    My neice has been to WDW three times now. When she was looking through our photos the other day, she couldn't believe the ones we had from WS in Epcot of all of the entertainers in the different countries. The only one she had seen for herself was the drummers in Japan.

    Do you make time to see the street entertainers? I know we do and it is one of my fave things to do at Epcot....in fact, it is my fave thing!

    Which entertainer is your favourite?

    We have seen most of them, but I actually have a printout now and I aim to see them all next year.

    We love Sergio in Italy, my DS always gets chosen to help. I loved watching the candy lady in Japan - even if she was a bit scary

    I tend to avoid the players in the UK through fear of being picked on.

    I want to watch the full show of Off Kilter next year - they looked worth watching

    Oh we are the same! We love the different acts and shows in each country!

    Some of our favorites are no longer there though.

    The Serveur Amusant (certainly spelled wrong) in France is a favorite. There is a new "waiter" in that skit now, but the "guest" remains the same. It's always fun to watch this one, even if you've seen it before as the audience reacts differently each time.

    Mo'Rockin is a real favorite of many too. However, when they don't have the Middle Eastern dancer with them, folks tend to walk on by. :dozey:

    Some of the countries need to add some entertainment. Norway and Germany come to mind. They've fallen off in the past years.

    Mexico's Mariache Cobre is incredible. They perform indoors when it is too hot. They always draw a crowd that participates by dancing and singing along. Fun stuff!

    I think the World Showcase Players move from the UK to France and sometimes Italy, with variations in their shows along the way.

    I love the Mexican entertainment.

    The Japanese drummers are awesome too.

    And the Christmas storytellers are the best ever.

    I don't know Issy. I don't much pay attention to the dancer. I get on my high (18 hands or so LOL) feminist horse and refuse to watch. Middle Eastern dancing was invented by women for women and I really dislike seeing it made into gawking for men. One of those opinions best kept to myself. (SOOOOO sorry you asked, eh)?

    not at all Tink....we all have our own opinions and it would be a sad and very bland world if those opinions were all the same.
    I don't mind and actually quite enjoy watching her. In fact, if it were just the band, I'd probably walk on by!

    We've seen all of them at least once. We now never miss the Japanese drummers. I had a dragon made for me by the Candy lady last time.
    I like the Mariache band too, but DH isn't too keen on them.
