    How much time should I allow to visit all the countries in the World Showcase at Epcot?

    Hi, Brandy!  This is a really tough question.  Some countries have attractions, such as Maelstrom in Norway, that may have a wait time before you can ride.  Other countries have movies you might want to enjoy.  Most of what is at each of the countries involves shopping and eating, but each country also has a show of some sort.  

    If you wanted to enjoy the shows in each country, I would allow at least 15 - 20 minutes for that alone.  The countries that have movies might add another 10 - 20 minutes.  Then you will probably want to browse shops.  You'll find items imported from the various countries, along with some souvenirs, and depending on your interests, you could walk through in just a few minutes, or you might spend longer browsing.  I could spend an hour just looking at things at the shop in Japan, but zip right through another shop.

    I would tell you to budget at least 30 or 40 minutes in each of the countries.  That way, if you want to stay longer at one but breeze through another, it would all balance out by the end of the day.

    I hope that helps!  Have a wonderful trip!
