    Hi Erin! My DH(25) and I(22) will be in Epcot on Jan20.This is my 1st trip as an adult but I have visited 10 times as a child,my family was just never interested in the WS.Can you give me some must sees that a young couple would enjoy in the World Showcas

    I'd say that rather than having individual "must see" elements, the entire World Showcase experience is a "must sense" experience. The World Showcase does have two smallish ides, in Mexico and Norway. A few of the countries show beautiful films. And of course many of the countries feature artists and performers. But other than that, there are not really attractions in the WS in the same sense as there are in the other areas of the theme parks.

    That being said, the World Showcase is one of my favorite parts of WDW because it fully engages all the senses:

    - Taste! Every country in the WS serves both full meals and tasty snacks from their home nation. Bratwurst in Germany, crepes in France, cous cous in Morocco, sushi in Japan. And in addition to food there are delicious native drinks served too. For me, eating and drinking my way around the World is one of the best parts about Disney.

    - Smell. In addition to the wonderful food smells in the World Showcase, many of shops in the countries sell native perfumes or incense. So intoxicating!

    - Hear. There is music everywhere in the WS. Pop bands play in England and Canada. Mariachis are in Mexico. Makes you want to dance!

    - Touch. I love feeling the plush carpets in Morocco and the silky kimonos in Japan.

    - And of course, See!  I love looking at the incredible details in the countries I've been to. England looks exactly like England. How did they do that? And I also love looking at the countries I've never been to. I probably won't ever get to Morocco. But I feel like I know it from the World Showcase.
