After you visit the Germany Pavilion and head towards Italy make sure you stop and admire what is called the “Train Setup” just past the Pavilion. It’s a delightful little model of a German town with incredible detail. You will thoroughly enjoy it, particularly those of you who are model train enthusiasts. Everything is in perfect scale with one exception. On occasion, one of the local creatures (gecko) can be found sitting on or around one of the structures. It does look a bit odd but makes for a terrific photo – perhaps on our next visit I’ll be able to get a shot of one.
Is it a super duper attraction? No it isn’t but it is a nice little diversion and just one of the thousands you will find around Epcot, particularly in the World Showcase. Is it worth a special trip to Epcot to see? No it isn’t but it is one of those things that most of us seem to rush on by while trying to get to the “biggies”. We all need to rush a bit less and enjoy the detail that the Imagineers have placed virtually everywhere at Walt Disney World.
I hope you will all stop by this little display the next time you are strolling through Epcot’s World Showcase. It won’t take long to look it over and even snap a few photos. The little things like this add so much to a Walt Disney World Vacation. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!
