Showcase station

The rather nondescript buildings that host Epcot’s Port of Entry and Disney Traders shops are often overlooked. Most of the goods available for purchase can be found elsewhere around the park, and a majority of the time guests are hustling to make their ADR somewhere along the promenade or they simply do not take the time to explore. While the interiors take the theme of a transit hub and present it in a masterful way, the unremarkable exteriors have always been a hindrance to the shops.Recently, however, artwork has sprung up along the large windows of the shops. These stylized travel posters present an image of every country with a pavilion in World Showcase, along with a couple holiday messages as well. Today, we’ll take a stroll around the buildings and see just what kind of tempting eye-candy Epcot has created to entice shoppers.

I noticed these when we were at WDW in November. I loved the simplicity of the designs reminiscent of posters from the WPA era. I thought they provide a nice nod to the landmarks of World Showcase.
