PERU IN THE WORLD SHOWCASE?

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


In the last few weeks, surveys about countries that would like to be seen in World Showcase have been heard to be floating around the Disney property.  Just a few days ago, word starts spreading that Disney is interested in possibly putting a replica exhibit of Machu Picchu in Epcot. It has also been reported that Disney cooks may be visiting Cusco to learn about the food and culture of Peru.

Could this be the beginnings of a new World Showcase Pavilion?

This country is steeped in culture, making it a great educational experience to fit in with the other countries of World Showcase.  None of the pavilions in the Showcase are from South America, so adding this country would bring a whole new region.  There are many different areas of the culture that could be covered in a pavilion.

Of course, these are all rumors and insights mentions from across the internet.  No official word has come out of Disney about a new pavilion yet.  Because they are reportedly looking at the culture and food as well as the one set of ruins, they could be using this as an idea and theme for Epcot Food and Wine Festival held every fall.  This also is just another rumor.

Until more information is found out, we will just have to sit and speculate.
