Morocco Pavilion roof refurbishment - March 2024
Posted: Monday March 25, 2024 10:37am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Although it appeared that the lengthy refurbishment of EPCOT's Morocco pavilion was wrapped up last year, a large section of the pavilion is now behind refurbishment walls.

The large center section, including the fountain and archway, is blocked.

Guests can still access all of the buildings throughout the Morocco pavilion via a narrow walkway on either side of the central walls.

The company who were running it when Covid caused the parks to shut went bust.

The company who operated went bust? I thought it was the country backing out, but that seems not to make sense since the Morocco Pavilion is the most authentic built by them which they would be proud of to continue. If it's all to do with one of the run companies can't Morocco have another run it?

well, some other country star had a pretty big hit covering 'Lawyers, Guns, and Money' so I imagine it makes sense to tap into his works ;)

Eh… that seems to be a very one-sided way of telling that haha. Ideally, Disney would see the value in having the countries represented well. Compare the shops of China and Japan to Canada for example.

We know that before the pandemic, the Morocco pavilion was leased to outside tenants and Disney kicked them out for not paying the rent when they were forced to close because of the pandemic. I we loved their counter service. We thought it was the best counter service in EPCOT and we loved the sit down there too. Anyway, I wonder if the construction is a sign there are new tenants or got the original tenants back?

Was thinking of the Terri Clark song.

You’re absolutely right. As someone who hails from the other end of the Mediterranean and grew up eating food very similar to Greek, I can confirm that Moroccan cuisine is very different, which is hardly surprising given the distance involved (there are as many miles between Greece and Morocco as there are between the UK and Russia).

Can't believe I was there Tuesday a week ago. We ate at Spice Road Table because a friend of mine loves Mediterranean food. We loved it!

My wife was going to make homemade lasagna this weekend but she has since lamented. Poor Poor Pitiful Me. Hmm Maybe there's a song in that...Who Knows :p
