Epcot’s Africa Pavilion - The World That Never Was #1

September 2, 2016

Epcot's excitement comes in the form of "edutainment" or educational entertainment. Loosely based on a world's fair, Epcot showcases science and technology as well as world culture. Their World Showcase pavilions are some of my favorite places to spend time at Walt Disney World but there is one looming problem, World Showcase doesn't really represent the entire world. 

In this episode we explore the African pavilion that could have been as well as why it was never built. We discuss if there is still a need for an African pavilion or if it could even be built today.
