World Showcase - Morocco

While the real Morocco is located on the westernmost tip of north Africa, bordering Algeria to the east and the Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara to the southeast, Epcot's Morocco pavilion is located between France and Japan. From across the World Showcase Lagoon, the Koutoubia Minaret (prayer tower) can be seen.

The showcase re-creates the architecture and atmosphere of this famed northern African kingdom. Three cities are represented: Casablanca, Fez, and Marrakesh. The landscape is dominated by plants of economic importance, a reflection of the integral role agriculture plays in this country.

Exotic and beautiful, the entrance of the Morocco pavilion is the Koutoubia Minaret, the famous prayer tower in Marrakesh, and is an introduction to this north African country. Feel free to walk into the old city portion of the pavilion, filled with stores that handicrafts, jewelry, brass pots, and clothing in a marketplace that might remind you of the marketplace scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark..

Join Moroccan cultural ambassadors on a 45-minute Treasures of Morocco tour to learn about their culture, lifestyles, and country. Dining options include Tangierine Cafe, a counter-service restaurant where you can get a good sampling of a number of delicious Mediterenean dishes, and Restaurnat Marrakesh, a fancier sit-down restaurant.
