As a kid, one of the joys of visiting my grandparents was knowing I would be offered a Werther’s butterscotch candy from the bowl beside my grandfather’s favorite chair. I’ve never lost that love of Werther’s and fully intend to have my own bowl to dole out to the grandkids when I reach that age.
Back in April, I saw a TV ad for Werther’s that seemed really familiar to me. It took me a few seconds to figure out why… it was filmed in the Germany pavilion at EPCOT. Unfortunately, I don’t have the ability to record off my DVR, but here’s a still shot from the TV.
I like that they didn’t even change the window displays. The toys are all still right there.
Keep your eyes open and if you do catch it on DVR, see if you can save it your PC and send it my way.
Update: Here’s a similar commercial. You can clearly see it’s the Germany Pavilion in the first few seconds of the commercial.
Have you seen this Werther's Original Candies ad? http://is.gd/4ECHz It uses the Germany Pavilion at EPCOT as a stand in for the real thing.

I’m an actor in the 2nd commercial you posted, and I can confirm that you are correct. This was funny to read :) thanks!
