EPCOT 25TH ANNIVERSARY - a special celebration - World Showcase original artwork

This is the last article about Epcot's original artwork, and we will have a look to the World Showcase artwork, beginning by the one above of the Mexican pavilion.

The next one below is about the China pavilion.

Let's have a look to the Germany pavilion with these two renderings

A small one about the facade of American Adventure

Let's travel to Japan with this rendering of the Japan pavilion

Here is the one about France

And three renderings about the United Kingdom area

Now, as you know, other countries were envisioned but not built. Here is a concept-art of a Swiss pavilion, with the famous Matterhorn.

An Equatorial Africa area was also envisioned. Below two of the renderings, and you can know more about it in the Jeff Lange aticle HERE

Russia would have been beautiful, with the onion domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, and two great attractions, a theatrical one with Audio-animatronics, and a ride that Jim Hill described well in his article HERE

I will end with one question: do you think an "Epcot" park was ever envisioned by WDI for Disneyland Paris? Come back soon, as you will have the answer in a future article!

GREAT renderings!!!! It's simply amazing how they painted them all in details!!! I never imagined they had considered Russia for the World Showcase! It would have been beautiful.
