Morocco Pavilion central courtyard walled off - May 20 2021
Posted: Friday May 21, 2021 9:05pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The central courtyard of the Morocco pavilion at EPCOT is now behind rolling construction barriers.

The use of rolling bushes appears to suggest this will be a fairly quick job, possibly a repair to underground utilities. An area of the concrete has been dug up, and work lights are in position for overnight work.

Plastic protective wrapping is covering the front of the Tangierine Cafe.

Guests are still able to reach the back of the pavilion, although the two restaurants in that area remain closed.

Since Disney took over control of the pavilion from the third party operator back in October 2020, numerous cosmetic changes have been made to retail and signage,  along with removing the infamous photo spot. The area restrooms re also currently under refursbishment.

agree, was the last one left where you could walk up and get right in and enjoy a comfortable meal and not be rushed or packed in like all the other chow halls.

Yikes about the cast. I have wanted to try the bites but I've heard it's a ghost of its former self. Would love a new market back there... Something new that would financially be a success.

They do have a a sangria cart back there with some snacks, staffed by someone from American Adventure las time I was there. It felt kinda sad and lacklustre though.

It looks like it's getting really close. I love where the "masonry" is going. I just wish they would put a food market in that medina to pull some traffic and life back there...

Hopefully this refurbishment wraps up quickly and the shrub wall goes away because epcot is a mess today and people need more places to go

My friend and I loved it as it was. It was our top choice for an Epcot TS meal.

It would be nice if they fixed the Marrakesh table service. It has never been a fan favorite, so might as well tinker.

The food was good enough my boys waited until after the meal to notice Mo Rockin or the belly dancer.

I hope Marrakesh comes back in similar form to years past. The food was good and atmosphere/staff felt authentic. We need more of this in Epcot.

I missed Tangerine. Sitting there admiring and enjoying Mo Rockin and the beautiful belly dancer.

It looks like Tangerine Café will be returning for food and wine fest

You got me thinking about desert parties and cupcakes in the mist. Suddenly, MacArthur Park is playing in my head. Thanks a lot!
