Imagine searching for silken clothes among the lantern-lit marketplaces of China, darting in and out of Europe, Asia, Canada and Africa to purchase unique, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted gift items found only in these native lands. Imagine a whirlwind shopping spree around the world without need for a passport or plane ticket. Imagine no longer — it’s Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort.
From the seasonal explosion of the Canada

reflective ponds and water lilies, the gardens of Epcot are among

nations of World Showcase, the gardens set the stage to help
tell each country’s “story” and provide continuity and transition
from one nation to the next. This showplace of themed landscapes is
maintained by a horticulture staff of more than 750.
Mexico is represented by one of Epcot’s dominant landmarks, a huge building like a Mayan or Aztec pyramid overlooking the eastern shore of World Showcase. Inside the Mexico pavilion, Walt Disney World visitors find a moonlit plaza surrounded by tile-roofed shops, one of Mexico City’s most famous restaurants and a memorable boat cruise down El Rio del Tiempo.
