EPCOT - World Pavilions - Part 2/2

Japan Panvilion EPCOT World Showcase
The Japanese Pavilion


There are a number of rides and eleven world pavilions to explore in EPCOT that cover a distance of nearly 2 kilometres. Last week I covered Kidcot Funstops and EPCOT Passports,Germany, U.S.A, U.K, China, Norway and Mexico World Pavilions. This week I cover the rest - Morocco,  Canada, France, Japan and Italy.

Morocco
- The buildings are copies of Moroccan Cities including, Casablanca, Fez and Marrakesh. There is a great resting place behind red doors on left when you enter. The King of Morocco sent his royal craftsmen to do all the tiling, carving and painting. Morocco and the France pavilion were my favourites as the atmosphere was great, and there was a lot of very tempting shopping!

Canada - Entertainment is the Canadian Lumberjacks. 'O' Canada' is a 20 minute 360° degree film starring actor Martin Short where you must stand during duration (there are no seats). The Pavilion has reproductions of the Rocky Mountains, streams, gardens and a totem pole.

France - Impressions de France (18 minute film) is set in a traditional theatre, where its air-conditioned and has seats. There is rarely a wait to get in. The Bakery is delicious and I totally recommend as one of the best value for price places to eat in EPCOT (and indeed Walt Disney World). The Eiffel Tower is 1/10th the size of the original and is behind the building where the Movie is shown (Palais Cinema).

Japan - A lot of souvenirs to be found here including Pokémon. There are pretty ponds and garden displays, Japanese Torii gates and a Japanese castle. Taiko Drums play 5 times per day by a group called the Matsuriza. It is a very lively area.

Italy -The 83 foot tall belltower in Italy is modelled on the original found in St Marks Square in Venice. The angel at the top of the bell tower is covered in real gold leaf! There was also a lot of Italian statues and expensive Venetian Masks! Loved the Venetian Masks.

There is a scenic boat ride to take you across the World Showcase lagoon. It won’t save you much time getting from one side of the lagoon to the other though.

Overall, it was fun exploring the different ‘worlds’

Until next week,
