...No-Worries, but it sure did seemed like an E-Ticket Ride experiece to me though.
That would definitely be an exotic place indeed... I mean, where else can you see Koalas, Kangaroos, and Bearded Dragons in the wild? Not to mention Ayers Rock being a phenomenal point of interest.
I'd like the idea of Sinbad from Tokyo DisneySea.
While on the subject of Australia, they could connect Australia with the South Pacific with Surfing maybe?

Though its already very Western slanted. We need more of the middle east/Africa. Probably more middle Western like Jordan
How about a pavilion from a South American nation like Brazil? It could have some sort of Amazon themed flume ride.
I voted for India, because I have long thought about how exciting and beautiful a Magic Carpet Ride could be. Think of the escape from the Cave of Wonders... Flying over the moonlit sands of the desert, and the Nile. Flying over the Taj Mahal, the Pyramids... all with that wonderful song from Aladdin playing, or not... Or, Adventures of Sinbad with the music of Sheherazade playing. And other possible adventures on a ride like that. Might be expensive to do it right, and big enough... like really, really huge. But I like the India, Aladdin or Sinbad, and Taj Mahal idea much more than the others.
I've been to a few Middle Eastern countries (which aren't really represented in World Showcase) but I can't really think of how it would be setup. (FYI - Morocco is technically in Africa, although they do represent the Arabic culture well.)
Brazil would be a good representation for South America.
Also, way back in 2000, the corporate relations guy (in charge of large corporate accounts with countries) told me that conversations were ongoing with both Egypt and Russia -- HOWEVER, at that time, both countries balked at the price tag of paying for a pavilion. I guess they have to pay for the pavilion themselves. But that was 8 years ago...I'm not sure that Russia will be the best political choice right now, with the whole invading Georgia thing going on.
My vote would definitely be....anything new.
