New look for popular Morocco Pavilion social media photo spot

Morocco Pavilion reworked chimney
Posted: Tuesday April 27, 2021 8:50am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction walls were removed last week at EPCOT'S Morocco pavilion as Disney completes the small project to modify a social media photo spot.

Scaffolding and a work scrim have been removed around the construction area which contained a structure with a suggestive appearance when viewed from certain angles and poses.

The wall has now been modified to include a doorway and reshaped concrete.

Since taking over the pavilion from the former third party operating participant, Disney has been making small modifications, including a new menu at Spice Road Table, some cosmetic changes to the Gifts of Morocco store, and currently refurbishing the bathrooms.

Sadly not enough people know that’s how to experience world showcase, too busy staring at their TikTok boxes

There’s a great deal to see at the pavilion. You just have to open your eyes to it.

I’m confused as to why they have two closed dining venues and then set up a little random cart to sell snacks and drinks.

Something has to be done with this pavilion. There is nothing to see in it except some divey shops and a little fountain that makes me want to pee.

I always assumed it was a buttress. A visual clue to the period and building method of the structure. The door itself looks fine, perhaps even good. Its robust arch could retain its function as buttressing support. But just around the corner is the actual entrance door, only five feet away or thereabouts. Plus there is no corresponding door inside, reducing the feature to an outdoor broomstick cabinet.

It's a Mask-Free Zone.

What exactly is a "Relaxation Station"? There used to be benches and seating I am not quite getting what this is... Free water and shoulder massages? Cool towels? What?

Is the relaxation station going to be in Marrakech?

Right. I've been in the Morocco pavilion numerous times and I never once noticed the, um, architectural feature on that wall. I hardly ever went back there except for one time I dined in Restaurant Marrakesh for a Candlelight Processional ticket. So, do we really think most people are going to get riled up by a non-descript door that most will never notice or if they do hardly register?

I'm sorry, but the themed environment (or what you creatively, dismissively call "facility design") is a HUGE part of why people visit WDW. World Showcase Lagoon is popular largely because of the unique themed environment. If Disney messes up that environment with shortsighted facility design changes™️, then that's worth discussing on this board.
