United Kingdom

On one short street Disney's designers have managed to capture hundreds of years of British architecture, with style ranging from urban London to country cottage, and, amazingly, they've made it all work together. They've also managed to carve out one of Epcot's quieter spots -- once you've entered the small park at the rear of the pavilion, you might as well be a thousand miles away from Walt Disney World and in England itself.


Check the daily entertainment schedule for the happenings here. The World Showcase Players comedy group often shows up; the British Invasion, a retro-pop oldies band specializing in Beatles and other Brit group covers, is always worth a listen, and Pooh and Mary Poppins characters sometimes make live appearances in the garden.


Out on the World Showcase Lagoon Disney has recreated another English institution: the pub. The Rose and Crown Pub & Dining Room serves traditional pub faire -- from fish & chips and meat pies to roast beef and prime rib, on the terrace surrounding the building. There's plenty of beer and ale on tap inside as well, although, in deference to American tastes, it's served cold (you can, however, have your Guinness' processed in their special Ale Warmer if you prefer it at a more traditional temperature). Reservations recommended (especially near time for IllumiNations, as the Pub's dining patio is a great spot to catch the show).

Yorkshire County Fish Shop has a quick fix of Harry Ramsden's fish and chips for pick-up.


Some of Epcot's more interesting shops are here:

The Toy Soldier, for unusual playthings and a growing crowd of generic Disney Winnie the Pooh merchandise.

The Crown & Crest has heraldry items and a collection of Beatles memorabilia.

Sportsman Shoppe. Tennis (clothing from Wimbeldon) anyone? How about rugby shirts, or golf wear from Saint Andrews?

The Queen's Table, for Royal Doulton China.

Lords and Ladies, offers scented soaps and perfumes.

The Tea Caddy, for Twinings & Co, Ltd. teas and tea service related items.

Where To?

From The United Kingdom you can turn left (as you face World Showcase Lagoon) to visit Canada or right to visit France.
