    I think it's a well established fact that we love EPCOT. In fact, as our children get older, I'd go so far as to say it's our favorite park. One of our favorite things in the World Showcase is the entertainment you find. From the World Showcase Players, Voices of Liberty, and Myuki to Off Kilter and the British Revolution - we love them all.

    What's your favorite entertainment in the World Showcase? What do you miss that's no longer there, what would you like to see added?

    My favourite is the drummers in Japan. I could listen to them for ages. :)

    Sergio in Italy, I think Daniel has been his helper every time we have been! It's a tradition!

    Oh man.. tough one.

    Current would probably have to be the Off Kilter or the Jammitors.

    Historically though, there were two that were my all time favorites:
    • The British Invasion
    • Nova Era
    Wish they were still around. :sigh:

    Also wish there were more of the big name entertainment they used to have at the American Gardens Theatre. Things like "The Best of Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance". Saw that one 5 different times. Or "The Best of Blast". An amazing show. If you've never seen that one (or much less heard of it), it's put on by the Star of Indiana drum and bugle corp and it's a must see if you ever get the chance. Here's them doing Chuck Mangione's "Land of Make Believe" from the show (this one at the California Adventure).

    They are a classical ensemble. As they put it, classical with a groove. Saw them over in the courtyard in Italy during one trip.

    They look a lot like this:

    Just realised my most favourite, favourite are Voices of Liberty - I could actually watch them all day and they make me cry every time I see them!

    My choice would be Off Kilter and The British Invasion. The British Revolution is good too but I miss my "Beatles".
    It is that moment when I have a cold pint in my hand and the hot sun in my face listening to "Hey Jude" that I feel that I am officially on vacation.

    Oh! Is that the group you posted a photo of a few days back, Robert? I remember that! Yes, they looked quite interesting then as well!

    Voices of Liberty would be my choice if I could only choose the one act. Love British Invasion too.

    Never seen him in the summer but at Christmas, there is a very good sax player at DTD.

    The Voices of Liberty absolutely give me chills! Love them!

    Off Kilter is lots of fun!
