The Spirit of Norway at Epcot

When I visit Epcot's World Showcase, I always enjoy a stop in the Norway pavilion. There you can learn about Norway's mythology, past, present and future by enjoying a dragon boat ride through the Maelstrom. Norway is the home to my favorite snack in Walt Disney World (School Bread at the Kringla Bakeri og Kafe) and the home to Vikings. The mighty Viking below stands outside the Stave Church where an exhibit of famous Vikings and their history resides.

I know many people walk right through the theater at the end of the Maelstrom ride. If you have never seen the movie or have not seen it in a long time, take the six minutes to view the beauty of Norway and its people.

CJ:

Great pics. My wife and I always stop in the bakery for some soft pretzel thing with maple icing and almond slivers. And a cold Carlsberg.

Scott replies: CJ, that would be the Kringla Sweet Pretzel which my daughters love to get while I am downing my school bread.
