Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia


Did you know:
The circular structure in EPCOT's China Pavilion is a smaller version of the Temple of Heaven located in Beijing, China, built between 1406-1420.  I saw billboards for it around Beijing and it was in every guide book, but without much free time, I never made it there.  I did, however, spend a few hours in The Forbidden City, built in the same dynasty and has very similar architecture!

  2. Glad your back! We really need to take more time to appreciate the China pavilion. We have spent minimal time there. I guess I will be adding that to our "must do" list for our next trip!

  3. I love how authentic everything is at Disney. It's even neater when you experience the "real thing" and see how much research must go into everything at Disney.

  4. Amazing architecture! I love how they spent the time and money to do replicate as much as they could!
