Disney World After Dark: Norway

We continue our Disney World After Dark with a quick stop in Norway.

The Norway pavilion joined World Showcase on May 6, 1988. Sponsored by a consortium of Norwegian corporations, the cobbled village square of the pavilion showcases architectural styles of towns like Bergen, Setesdal, and Oslo, including the Stave Church (which houses a gallery) and a castle (which houses a restaurant) modeled after Akershus, a 14th-century fortress in Oslo Harbor. The Norway also containes beautifully crafted rock and stone work, some of the finest ever fabricated by the Disney Imagineers.

from Since the World Began by Jeff Kurtti, pg. 106

Enjoy Norway after dark.
