Disney Food Blog exclusively broke the official news that Morocco was introducing a new small plates restaurant way back in 2012!

We’ve watched the progress with eager eyes and can’t wait to try out the new spot, which we KNOW will be a great location for catching the IllumiNations fireworks!

Here’s a little photo tour of the new location, straight from Epcot today! You can see that construction walls are still up, so Disney’s going to be burning the midnight oil for the next two days getting this spot up and running… .

Here’s a super fun addition: the Juice Bar!! We’re so excited to be able to sidle up for some chef-created ice cream!! The rest of the menu is pretty much a repeat of what used to be available at the previous drinks and desserts bar at Morocco.

In addition to the newly integrated juice bar, you’ll still find retail space here where you can snag your tagines!

And after you get your ice cream, head in for a Henna Tattoo!

Of course, the decor and features here are expected to be just as grand as they are throughout the rest of the Morocco pavilion. Just check out this cool light fixture!

    Any idea when ADR’s will be available?

  2. Kelly says:

    Any idea as to whether Spice Road Table will be a counter service type of eatery or table service? Thanks for the updates and info!

  3. catherine says:

    It’s a small plates place, my bet’s on it being like Tutto Gusto. No reservations, walk in only, no dining plan.

  4. Steve says:

    We’re going down later this month. I will definitely send some pics and comments.

  5. Shea says:

    When this was first announced it was talked about as being a spot to watch Illuminations so I would assume that would mean that they indeed would take reservations. Otherwise people would come take up all their tables and never order any food.

    Is this replacing tangerine cafe?

  7. James D. says:

    This is awesome news! Now I only have to wait 2 weeks until I can get there to try it out!

  8. John says:

    Can’t wait to see the menu and (more importantly) the wine list. They won’t be able to top Tutto Gusto (and the fabulous Benito), but I do like the idea of a casual middle eastern spot. And I’ve already seen in numerous places that it (thankfully) won’t do ADRs. This is a casual stop in place like Tutto Gusto and Le Cava de Tequila.

  9. AJ says:

    Amy — Nope; Tangierine Cafe is still the counter service spot in Morocco.

  10. AJ says:

    Shea — This has long been a problem for Cantina de San Angel!

  11. AJ says:

    Steve — Thanks so much! Safe travels!

  12. Me says:

    They could have the dreaded QS CM who prohibits guests without food to sit at the tables. Just from 8:00 onward.

  13. catherine says:

    I think if they have problems with lingering guests it might be possible to institute a minimum purchase for a table instead of taking reservations. If it’s classified as a lounge like Tutto Gusto is, there won’t be reservations.

  14. Connie says:

    Disney Dining has no record of this restaurant and its Saturday opening. We’re at WDW now and have called Dining a few times and they have no idea what we’re talking about. Hope they figure it out soon. I want to go on Sunday night.

  15. I’m excited to see this and that juice bar! This looks great!

  16. Paul in CT says:

    AJ, thanks for the great news! We’re looking forward to hearing the menu. I bet you will be there before we will. We will have to try it in April.

  17. Essie says:

    I’m always excited to check out new places. It will be awhile before I can do this, but maybe the lines will be more manageable by then.

  18. Elizabeth says:

    Great timing, We will be there on Monday! We will check it out if it’s not too crowded. I love small plates and more exotic choices. Hopefully they will have some authentic fare. The morocco booth at the flower and garden festival was one of our favorites.

    Spice Road Table will be opening it’s doors this Saturday the 10th of January. So far they are not on Disney’s reservation system as well as they will not be part of the dinning plan (DDP, DLUX…) the place is gorgeous and the food is from a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best I will give it an 11. Great small Mediterranean Small Plates, great atmosphere and the best fireworks view at EPCOT.

    We were in Epcot on Saturday for the opening. So beautiful. Only had time for a quick stop, so I’m looking forward to a leisurely evening meal to enjoy the restaurant at night. I had the Harissa Chicken Roll. SO good! It had the perfect level of heat for me. Already makng plans to revisit Spice Road Table.

  21. Connie says:

    I can’t say enough good things about this new restaurant. We were there on Sunday night. They are definitely working out the kinks (a few light bulbs out on the hanging lanterns I. The outdoor area and the sound for illuminations was not pumped in). But the food and drink were great! I was suprised that the inside was so empty during illuminations. Only 2 tables were taken. I hope that people will not be scared off by the middle eastern cuisine. It was really delicious. There were influences from not only morocco but also Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, etc. the decor was shipped from morocco. And the server me ruined that many of the wine offering me are only offered there and nowhere else in WDW or USA. All in all, it was a wonderful time and I can’t wait to go back (hopefully when they take Tables in Wonderland).
    Note: we had both samplers ( the lamb slider and Harissa chicken roll were the best. Calamari was perfect. ), grape leaves, garlic shrimp, lemon custard and almond cake. And for drinks, the red sangria (awesome), Casablanca beer (morocco) and almaza beer (Lebanon).
