We’re continuing our voyage “around the world” through EPCOT’s World Showcase, which gives guests the chance to experience the culture, heritage, history, and cuisine of 11 different countries.
EPCOT’s Morocco Pavilion
Today we’re taking a closer look at the Morocco Pavilion. The expert artistry and design details throughout will make you feel as if you have traveled to Casablanca, Fez and Marrakesh.
When you first enter the pavilion, you will immediately notice the towering reproduction of the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakesh. Mosaic tileworks, paintings, lighting fixtures and fountains throughout the pavilion offer authentic details with unparalleled craftsmanship.
- Souk-al-Magreb marketplace offers handcrafted keepsakes, jewelry, toys, bags, hats, baskets and clothes.
- Marketplace in Medina has not yet reopened, but we hope to see it return soon. Here you can find baskets, clothing, hats and more souvenirs.
- Tangier Traders (also currently unavailable) offers daggers, mirrors, clothing and more.
- Casablanca Carpets (currently unavailable) offers beautiful carpets and textiles.
- Brass Bazaar (currently unavailable) offers brass collectibles and souvenirs.
Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina offers traditional Moroccan cuisine including Shawarma, Harissa Rotisserie Chicken and a Moroccan Kefta Wrap. During festivals, this location operates as a festival food booth. There is plenty of seating to be found both inside and out.
To satisfy your sweet tooth, visit Oasis Sweets & Sips where you can pick up assorted pastries or a refreshing beverage.
Toward the middle of the pavilion, guests can also visit Sangria Sips snack cart to grab a refreshing drink or snack. This area has a peaceful seating area, perfect for a little rest.
Spice Road Table offers a delectable taste of the Mediterranean with an unbeatable view of the World Showcase Lagoon. Dine on Mediterranean small plates paired with a specialty beverage while you take in the sights. For a special treat, book a Fireworks Dining Package to see the nighttime fireworks spectacular while you enjoy your dinner!
Restaurant Marrakesh has not yet reopened, but when it does we look forward to enjoying Moroccan specialties paired with lively entertainment.
