Why I love Canada in the World Showcase

I think that Canada is often one of the most overlooked countries in Epcot's World Showcase.  There is no ride.  No counter service.  And people just keep walking. But I also think it's one of the most beautiful in the World Showcase.  And deserves a moment of stopping to check it out.

When you approach from Future World, enter a path by the check in booth for LeCellier, and you are now in Victoria Gardens.  And it's simply exquisite.  Your kids should be on the look out for the bunnies that live here.




Keep wandering down the path and it narrows between a rock wall - and you'll come out at a gorgeous water fall - and the entrance to "O Canada" (which is a circle vision movie showing the beauty of Canada and narrated by Martin Short).




In addition to the gardens, there is the beautiful representative of the Hotel du Canada.


There are Native influenced totems.



A trading post.


And there are some great souvenirs to be found here.  Naturally, there are Canadian tshirts, Pluto dressed as a Canadian Mountie, and even cute beaver stuffed animals.  But you can also find Canadian chocolates (like my girls' favorite - the Aero bar).


 And my personal favorite - assortments of soap with fantastic names like "Beaver Butt," "Dog Team Drool" and "Sasquatch Sweat."




So next time you are in the world showcase, take a moment to explore.  And I promise you'll find the amazing Disney details!

So...what about you?  Have you explored Canada?  Do you have a favorite country in the World Showcase?
