Morocco

A replica of Marrakesh's Koutoubia Minaret watches over this exotic pavilion, its intricate tile work so authentic, both the tile and the artisans who set them were imported from Morocco. It only takes a few steps inside, beyond the Bab Boujouloud Gate from Fez, to feel like you've left Florida behind, especially when street musicians are performing in the courtyard.

Attractions

Visit the Gallery of Arts and History for a quick introduction to Moroccan crafts.

Mo'Rockin, an Arabic fusion rock band, often performs near the lagoon. Check your entertainment schedule.

Dining

For an adventure in eating try Restaurant Marrakesh, a table service restaurant featuring traditional Moroccan cuisine including roast lamb, chicken specialties -- and couscous, of course course. Reservations recommended.



The more casual Tangierine Cafe offers roasted chicken, sandwiches, and salads with the flavors of Tangier.

Shopping

There are no films or rides here, but there is shopping. At the back of the pavilion in the Marketplace in the Medina (The Old City) you can haggle over Moroccan clothing (like that Fez you've always wanted), carpets, brass items, baskets, and such. (Haggling probably won't do you much good at Disney prices, but you can try). Souk Al Magreb, on the lagoon side, offers more crafts and toys. You might also find some merchandise from Disney's Aladdin, and Aladdin himself, at the pavilion (they had to get a Disney character in here somewhere, you know).

Services

If all this makes you want to run off to the real thing, the Moroccan National Tourist Office stands ready here to plan and book your vacation package. They also offer a quick and informative tour about the features of the Morocco pavilion several times a day.

Where To?

From Morocco you can turn left (as you face World Showcase Lagoon) to visit France or right to visit Japan.
