Many have asked when Epcot will add new pavilions to its World Showcase. Suggestions and wish lists have been made. Rumors have flown. Now it looks as though there may be some truth to one rumor. Puerto Rico is sponsoring a Food and Wine Festival kiosk at Epcot this year, and according to Puerto Rican newspaper, Metro, is committed to three years of kiosk sponsorship.

Metro also says that a group of investors, led by Michael Poma, President of Metro’s Puerto Rico International Events, are making a concerted effort to increase the presence of Puerto Rico. Several Puerto Rican companies have partnered with Poma to ensure that Puerto Rico becomes a permanent World Showcase pavilion. Construction on a Puerto Rico pavilion would begin in 2017, and potentially not be completed until 2027.

What do you think?  Is Puerto Rico a good addition to the World Showcase?

  1. I agree that the 10 year projected timeframe seems… excessive. My guess (and my hope) would be that some portions of the pavilion would open at various points in that 10 year period, and that the entire pavilion just wouldn’t be operational until the end of that period of time. Though it’s also possible that they’re projecting for longer than they truly need. <—-Yeah, even I'm not to sure about that. Ever dealt with contractors? 😉

  2. ANY addition to World Showcase would be welcome. I’d love to see Puerto Rico represented. But 10 years? I guess the same folks building us the parking garage at Disney Springs will be working on this project as well.
