One of the biggest draws of EPCOT is its colorful World Showcase, where guests can travel around the world in a day!
But some big changes are happening over at the Morocco Pavilion: Disney will take over operations of the pavilion from its current operating participants. And this is set to happen by the end of the year.
Today, we noticed that much of the Morocco Pavilion has been shut down in anticipation of this big change. Certain parts of the pavilion are blocked off by planters.
Gifts of Morocco has temporarily closed its doors.
The Art of Henna, where guests can get henna tattoos, is also closed.
However, some parts of the pavilion are open, including Race Against the Sun and Kidcot.
Morocco Coffee & Pastries is also open. However, the menu is limited to bottled drinks, frozen daiquiris, and mint tea.
These closures are likely temporary, though, and Disney is making plans before the pavilion’s reopening. Although Disney is assuming all operational control over all food and beverage and merchandise locations, The Moroccan Embassy and Morocco Tourism Board are still involved with the pavilion.
Spice Road Table halted all dining reservations as of today, so we expect it to reopen later with the rest of the pavilion. We’ll be sure to keep you updated!
