Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of Disney In Pictures, the weekly series that invites you to share your Disney photos with us!  This week we are focusing on Epcot’s World Showcase as we invite you to share your favorite World Showcase Pavilion!  The  World Showcase is one of my favorite parts of Walt Disney World, and I look forward to seeing what you have to share with us, so let’s get started! First up is my friend Donna from DISTherapy! Donna is such an eloquent writer that she needs no further introduction! Here is what she had to say: I can’t!  I simply can’t choose just one!!  I’ve written about this very topic before, and not been able to draw a conclusion.  Life Full Circle at the World Showcase touches on some highlights, but I think I’ll take a different approach.  My family just loves to mangiare l’italiano, so off to Italy we go…

Tutto Italia


With Tutto Italia‘s new outdoor seating, you now have an additional option for table service dining at the World Showcase while watching (OK, craning your neck to see) Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.

Tutto Gusto

Brand new!  Tutto Gusto offers a wine bar and small plates; a more intimate, wine cellar venue, but where you can sit and order a full meal from Tutto Italia if you want!!!

Via Napoli

Epcot’s Italian Pavilion- not only beautiful to look at, but what a place to eat.  Abbondanza!! My buddy Denny from Mouze Kateerzis up next!  Denny is always sharing his photos with us, thank you Denny for doing so!  Here is what he had to say and share:

Well, there’s no question about my favorite at World Showcase: China!  The Lotus Blossom Cafe is my favorite place to have lunch. Hey…they have ginger/caramel ice cream.  Who could ask for a tastier treat?  Here are a couple of my favorite photos taken there. The first one is of a beautiful water lily.  The flora around this pavilion is incredible year-round, especially during the Flower and Garden Festival.  The second photo was taken at that event.  I surely wish this dragon was there all year.  He is stunning.  The spikes on his back are pineapple plants!  Thanks, Mike, for letting my mind wander back to one of my favorite spots for a few minutes!  Grins!

When I first talked about this week’s theme, one of the My Dreams of Disney readers, Nikki, shared these two photos on our Facebook page!  She didn’t leave any details about when these pictures were taken, but they are great pictures, so I’m sharing them here also!  Thanks Nikki! Our last contribution comes to us from Andrea, who is one of the contributors from Mouze Kateerz!  Andrea has no doubt about what her favorite pavilion is, here is what she had to say:

Hello Mike,
This question is easy.  We love France.  Viva La France!!!!  We say that everytime we walk over the bridge.  It is just something that started many trips ago by my oldest daughter, Brianne.  We always go to Boulangerie Patisserie for lunch.  We almost alway order the same thing – ham & cheese quiche, chocolate cake, strawberry tart and a french bread pizza.  I always get me a glass of Kir Royale then pop into the perfume shop for a quick sprits of our favorites.  There is just something about being in Epcot France that makes you feel like you are walking along the cobble streets in Paris. 
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Have a magical day

At this point, I thought I would close by sharing some of the pictures I have from World Showcase that are my favorites.  I hope you have enjoyed this week’s theme, and thanks for stopping by!  At the bottom of the post you’ll find a link for our Disney contest that runs from October 27, 2012 – November 5, 2012, so click the link to enter the contest, and good luck everyone!  Enjoy the pictures!
