    The country I would like to see represented would be Ireland. I think this would be a beautiful pavilion with their rich heritage. Also, a restaurant with their hearty food would be a welcome addition!


  2. Gracie N says:

    I would like to see Poland as the next country. Since I am part polish, this would be great to see some of my heritage. Also, I always visit the stand they have during the Wine and Food Festival! I love the Jungle Cruise. Always enjoy a good laugh! Thanks, Rick.

    Great video Rick!
    That was fun! Always like to see the differances between Disneyland attractions and Disney World attractions. Maybe it’s my imagination, but the JC at Disney World seemed longer when I rode it. I would like to see Australia represented at Epcot’s World Showcase.

    Hi Rick,
    I love this ride since I remember how proud Walt Disney was when he talked about this attracion on tv.This was the first ride I rode on when I went to DW for the first time. Last year when I finally had a chance to go to DL I did not get to this attaction so I was glad to see the video.

    I second the countries of Ireland or Australia to be at EPCOT.

    I won’t be at DW until Dec. Rick and I just received my tickets for the MMCP!
    I can’t wait!

    Great video. I love the WDW version and it’s so nice to be able to see the Disney Land original. Some day I’ll get out there.
    Oh so many countries to choose. I’d love to see the unique architecture of Russia or Greece. My mind immediately goes to what sort of rides these countries could host in their pavilions.
    As far as questions of the week I would ask, “What is your favorite time of year to go to WDW and why?”
    “How do you pass the time while waiting on line for a Disney Attraction?”
    Keep the great videos coming. They make my week. 🙂

    I enjoyed this video but I could not do a comparison because I have not ridden the WDW version. Since my ancestors were from Ireland I would have to say Ireland would be the country I would like to see represented. Thanks for the videos. Questions, I will have to get back to you on that one..



  7. Linda Miller says:

    I enjoyed seeing the Disneyland version of Jungle Cruise. I really liked the piranah scene. That would be a good addition to the WDW version.

    I would like Disney to add Australia to Epcot. I always enjoy the food samples from Australia during the Food and Wine Festival and would like to be able to have a restaurant to visit all year.

    Thanks for another great video. I look forward to them every week!!

    Hi Rick
    I hope you enjoyed the Grand Villa at Kidoni Village. I think Egypt should be in Epcot, because of the ancient ruins left behind from the Egyptians. If you are running out of questions why not this…. Where in Walt Disney World would you find a Grand Staircase.

    Well now that was FUN! Tell your daughter I love Hepburn too and have a pic of her in our French inspired bedroom (also love Breakfast at Tiffany!) Well, I would also like to see Greece or Egypt. I think they would be beautiful.
    Thanks for another great video.


  11. Robert Nordmark says:

    Hey Rick, I enjoyed watching the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. Sometimes I tend to skip rides like this because I think I’m too old and the ride is just for young children. But watching this video today reminds me that I’m not too old for these kinds of rides.

    How about Argentina or Tahiti for a new country to be represented at Epcot. I haven’t been to either of those countries so I would like to see them represented at Epcot.



  12. Brad S says:

    Hi Rick – I was just at WDW a few weeks ago and the Jungle Cruise is one of my favorite attractions. There are some differences in the Disneyland one and the WDW attraction. They are both great, I will say the last time we were at WDW there was a woman that was the captain of our boat, I believe Pam, and she was so funny. I wish I could ride the attraction again with her, the sarcasm was pricess!

    I agree I would like to see Greece or Egypt with some sort of ride like in Norway, that is a fun adventure.


  13. John Broadwater says:

    the country that I would love to see is Australia. I think It would be very interesting. Had an R&R there once a long time ago.great show.thanks again.


  14. Rick another great show as always. I have not seen the piranha scene before, so that was interesting first view. You know the backside of water looks like the first side too …LOL


  15. Kevin Nelson says:

    Thanks so much Rick, I loved the piranah scene! We just got back from WDW over the Mother’s Day weekend, we had an AWESOME time and even got chosen as “family of the day” in Epcot, what a once in a lifetime thrill, great memories for my family and I! I would like to see Russia, Ireland and Australia represented in Epcot, maybe someday! Thanks Rick for brighting my day, it’s Monday at work after spending all of my time with my family in WDW, so I’m a little depressed this morning! I’m going to keep smiling and so are you, because we love WDW!


  16. Larry Banks says:

    Ride at DisneyLand looks shorter than the one at Disney World.

    India ,Russia or Greece. They all could bring a great Restuarant, as well as great themes for the buildings.

    If they ever do add another country, they need to make sure that some type of ride is included in its Pavilion!


  17. Ramon Santiago says:

    Hey Rick,
    Great Video. Love to see the new videos each week.
    OK, which country at Epcot. Everyone has mentioned some great ones. But knowing the weather in Florida in the Summer, I think Antartica would be a great place to visit. Nice Cold Attraction.. LOL.. Actually, I think Russia or Spain would be neat to visit.

    Keep up the great work, and thanks again.


  18. Debbie Bolen says:

    Loved the video again this week! I didn’t think the piranhas were in WDW – loved those. Maybe some day I’ll have a chance to visit Disneyland and see it in person.
    During the Millennium Celebration, Jerusalem had a ride thru their history and present which as awesome – I wish they would bring that back – it was a very enlightening ride. The Millennium Village had several small countries within the hall which were great and very informative.

    Have you been able to ride the balloon in Downtown Disney yet? I’d love to see a video on that….sorry can’t remember the real name of it.
