    Since there is NOTHING from South America it would be nice to have that continent represented. Also Spain and Russia come to mind.

    I have also thought they should add Greece. They could have a wonderful table service restaurant and then an attraction that was themed after Hercules. They could also add a fastpast attraction with an Olympic event theme (bobsled type rollercoaster for example).

    I would vote for Argentina, or chile, or another south american country. with rich flavors and a huge variety of activites there could be some fun attractions developed. I would want to see an e-ticket attraction though.

    what about the expansion of Germany with a Matterhorn style attraction or something similar with that imagineering flair we all love.

    Oh good suggestions, Rico!!! I think Argentina would be a fabulous addition. :yes: Expanding an existing country would be good too!

    You've given me the thought that perhaps what would be a good alternative to adding another country is updating all the existing countries! Not just give them new paint, ect. but actually update them to include more cultural aspects, more true representations of the country as a whole.

    I know the USA could do MUCH more with be a truly representative pavilion for this country. :yes:

    The Matterhorn however, is in Switzerland, not Germany. I like the idea of Argentina or Brazil along with a churrescaria (sp).

    I'd like to see something exotic, picturesque, unique. Now, what country would that be? I'm not sure... Egypt, maybe? Russia? India?

    I would add Egypt. They could have a ride that goes through a pyramid looking for treasure and of course there would be a curse.

    There's a whole Southern Hemisphere currently being ignored! ;)

    One of the Pacific Island nations would be neat! Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Fiji.....

    Weird how they ommited Egypt. Now that would have been a very good one.

    It`s not really weird when you consider that the actual country has to pay to have representation in the World Showcase, and this can cost a small fortune.
    I doubt whether countries like Egypt feel that it would be worth the effort given their other commitments closer to home.
