The Morocco Pavilion is another sight-seeing adventure. There are no high ticket rides or attractions here but the beauty and originality make up for that. This pavilion is beautiful and built to replicate the Moroccan cities of Fez, Casablanca and Marrakesh. The Moroccan king sent his royal craftsmen to lay the tile and paintings in the pavilion. Each building here is of religious significance.
There is an educational tour, lasting about 45 minutes, that provides information on Moroccan history, culture and people. The Treasures of Morocco also leads you to the Fez House and food market. The Fez house represents a typical Moroccan home and is located next to the Gallery of Arts and History which displays the music and technology of Morocco.
Dining in the Morocco Pavilion can be a real treat with several choices. Restaurant Marrakesh offers Moroccan salads, lamb, couscous, Mogador Fish Tagina and Moroccan baklava for dessert. This is a unique dining experience that does accept the dining plan. The Tangerine Cafe is a quick series restaurant that serves up Mediterranean wraps and sandwiches, specialty drinks and coffees.
There is a lot of shopping available in the Morocco Pavilion. The Berber Oasis, the Brass Bazaar, Casablanca Carpets and Tangier Traders are just a few of the shops where you can find jewelry, leather, crafts, clothing, baskets and handmade boots.
There is a Kidcot fun stop located in the Morocco Pavilion. Jasmine, Aladdin and Genie are found greeting visitors and posing for photos on most days, check times guides for appearance times and locations. Take time to visit this one of a kind pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. It is the only one sponsored by a government instead of a business.
Shannan is a mom that was born and raised in rural Tennessee. She tells us: “I live with my husband and 3 of our 5 children. Travis is 24 and is father to my grandbabies, Emma and baby Judson. I can’t wait to start sharing Disney with them. Dusty is 22, Clay 12, Zachary 10 and Erin is 8. I clean houses to make money to fund my magical trips. I went to Disney the first time as a teen and couldn’t wait to start introducing my own children to the magic. We took our 3 youngest in 2004 and that started it all. We have been 3 times since then and have our first Christmas trip planned for this December. Usually my parents accompany us on the trip and I have to research and plan for things that will suit various ages in our party of 7. Each time I go, I try new experiences in lodging and dining so I can share it with friends and family that seek my advice on trip planning! Disney is definitely my first choice in vacation destinations. Hopefully there is a Disney surf and turf vacation in our future!“
