    ok ok I know there's a shop but there's nothing much else other than well a pub! Why do they think that's all there is to the UK or do you agree :lol:

    What would you put in there? I think they should have a castle! or the london eye! or something more exciting.

    what do you think?

    Oh gosh! The UK has the music, the traveling actors, the lovely little butterfly/chrysalis box, the beautiful gardens (we love to sit 'round back) Mary Poppins, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and friends... loads of things other than the pub!

    I think it's one of the nicer spots in the World Showcase. It's built to represent some of the many forms of architecture seen in the UK. It's a lovely area for a picnic, too! (Down near the water). The outdoor seating with the little tables is public seating and great for a bit of a rest in the shade.

    It's also the BEST place to be on NYE when it goes Midnight in the UK!! :D :D

    its our favourite place to go and have something to eat, watch the fireworks and chill out :yes:

    I do think they could have something better though like paris and the tower

    France is nice too, that is true. :yes:

    Actually, I really like all of the world showcase pavilions except for the US. I think that pavilion is the worst depiction of a very diverse country! Flat federal style, with emphasis only on Colonial America. Not good form in my opinion, and boring as all get out. :shrug:

    I agree 100% with that Tink. There is SOOOOO much more to the US than the Colonial Period. I would think that they could even add a nice film about our country "From Sea to Shining Sea".

    I also find the UK very interesting.. yes.. there is the pub, but ther eis also a very nice shop.. I think it was nicer before, I remember getting a Paddington Bear when I was 10 in there... last time I went in it was basically Harry Potter merchandise...

    There is also a perfume shop...

    and the garden with a miniature laberynth is really well done!
