Across the 11 different country pavilions in EPCOT’s World Showcase neighborhood, you can experience the culture, heritage, history and cuisine of each represented nation.
EPCOT’s United Kingdom Pavilion
Today we’re taking a closer look at the United Kingdom Pavilion. Located between the Canada and France pavilions, you will find quaint cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings inspired by different periods and design styles from United Kingdom history.
As you further explore the pavilion, you will find beautiful English gardens and a hedge maze. Classic red telephone booths also make for a fun photo opportunity. (These phones used to be connected to real telephone lines, but have since been disconnected.)
- The Crown and Crest is the perfect place to find classic United Kingdom souvenirs, Guinness merchandise, Rose & Crown merchandise or your family coat of arms.
- The Toy Soldier offers keepsakes, toys, plush and apparel. This is usually a great place to find Winnie the Pooh merchandise!
- Lords and Ladies offers English perfumes, soaps, creams and accessories.
- The Queen’s Table is your one-stop shop for homeware such as dishes, towels, teapots, cups and more.
- The Tea Caddy offers an extensive selection of Twinings tea, tea accessories, sweets, snacks, shortbread cookies and royal memorabilia.
Just outside the Rose & Crown Pub, you will find the UK Beer Cart offering Harp Lager Draft, Magners Pear Cider, Bombardier Amber Draft and bottled water.
Yorkshire County Fish Shop offers the popular fish and chips, snacks, beverages and beers. This is a great place to grab a quick bite to enjoy at the tables overlooking the World Showcase Lagoon.
Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room offers traditional British fare in a family-friendly pub setting. In the dining room, enjoy classic favorites like fish and chips, bangers and mash or Shepherd’s Pie. In the lounge, you’ll find a full-service pub offering popular British cocktails, blends, whisky and cognacs. The Rose & Crown Dining Room also offers a Fireworks Dining Package, which gives diners the chance to see EPCOT’s nighttime spectacular while they enjoy their meal on the restaurant’s outdoor patio overlooking World Showcase Lagoon. Fireworks dining packages must be reserved in advance.
The beautiful gazebo in the center of the hedge maze hosts live entertainment throughout the year. You can hear British rock songs from the 1960s-1990s performed by the band Command Performance. During EPCOT’s “Festival of the Holidays,” Father Christmas also makes appearances here.
In the Rose & Crown Pub, you can catch some live musical entertainment from their resident musician.
The United Kingdom Pavilion is also home to some rare character meet-and-greets. Alice meets in the UK gardens, and Mary Poppins can be found in the courtyard (by the hedge mazes). Make sure to check the My Disney Experience app for appearance times.
There is also a Kidcot Fun Stop located in the Toy Soldier shop where kids can pick up a fun activity card/memento.
