In this episode of WEDway Radio Matt and Nate return to Epcot and discover the details of an original World Showcase pavilion; Germany.  Although it doesn't have a ride or an attraction there isn't anything lacking about this particular pavilion.  From the Fairy-Tale setting, to the Statue of St. George, to the replica Kaufhaus, to the amazing attraction that managed to made it off the drawing board but was never built, Germany is an amazing place.
