Tangierine Cafe refurbishment - June 8 2021
Posted: Wednesday June 9, 2021 8:11am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Morocco Pavilion'sTangierine Cafe will be reopening this summer as part of the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.

Beginning July 15, Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina will serve traditional Moroccan cuisine, like grilled kebabs and a falafel pita. This year's festival will see a handful of locations offering indoor Global Marketplace kiosks, including at the American Adventure and the Canada pavilion. With the event beginning in July, Disney appears to be conscious of afternoon storms impacting operations of outdoor kiosks and is looking to offer indoor venues where possible.

The quick service restaurant is currently under refurbishment with concrete work taking place in-front of the main entrance.

At the side of the building alongside the World Showcase promenade, signage is covered.

The original Tangierine Cafe closed in October 2020 as the pavilion's third party operator struggled in the wake of the COVID shutdown. Disney has since taken over operations of the Morocco Pavilion and is making a series of improvements.

Saw this in person the other day and it felt kinda weird that this is the only pavilion with such different pavement

Latest look at the progress at Morocco https://www.wdwmagic.com/dining/tangierine-cafe/gallery/23jun2021-tangierine-cafe-refurbishment---june-23-2021.htm Walls have been moved to give access to the Tanierine Cafe, but the Race Again The Sun is now blocked off. Also more of the new textured concrete has been completed on the main promenade.

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.
