Norway gets kicked out of World Showcase…?

Today I read the Norwegian newspaper «Kapital» that Disney is considering throwing Norway out of World Showcase in Epcot to replace the pavilion with a Scandinavian pavilion instead.

This is terrifying, and it really could happen. It would be totally understandable if Disney decided to offer exhibition place to Sweden and Denmark. Norway has abandoned the pavilion, the reply I got from the PMs office was that this was a matter for the department of trade, but they just rejected a contribution application….

Im really disappointed  about Norway at the moment, and we cant take it for granted that our pavilion with over 11 million visitors every year will stay there forever if we dont do anything to keep it updated… But luckily the Kapital also says that the ministry of trade is reconsidering the application now, so lets hope that some sense come out of that…
