DDW Pic 147. Morocco

Morocco
Morocco is a sometimes overlooked pavilion at Epcot, however I find it an interesting place to visit. I have enjoyed dinner at Restaurant Marrakesh on several occasions. The food is good and the belly dancers are entertaining. On our most recent trip, I ate at the Tangerine Cafe for the first time. We sat in the outdoor seating area behind the palm trees in this picture. It is a great place to relax and there is a very nice view of the World Showcase Lagoon. When you walk deeper into Morocco, you really feel like you have been transported to this North African country. You will find several different shops with authentic Moroccan clothing, jewelery, etc. If you listen carefully, you can also hear the recorded sounds of people talking in the apartments above the shops. An interesting fact about this pavilion is that the Tower of Terror, from Hollywood Studios, can be seen from a certain angle when looking across the lagoon at Morocco. For this reason, the top of the Tower was designed so that it blends in with the Moroccan architecture. This is another example of Disney's attention to detail.
