Travelling the World at EPCOT

One of the best parts to EPCOT for me is the world showcase. We’re not going to make it all the way around the World Showcase today on our virtual trip to EPCOT. This will part one of the World Showcase. So, let’s head to Canada…

Welcome to Canada! Or at least Canada EPCOT style. I love the waterfalls at the Canada Pavilion!

Here is the attraction of the Canada Pavilion. It’s a circle vision film entitled O’ Canada. This is a fun film with Martin Short as the main MC. This is one of those times where the virtual tour fails to live up to the actual experience. I loved seeing this film in person. To be surrounded by the images is very cool.

One of the more popular spots to dine at EPCOT is Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion. So, I thought it would be fun to throw in a little bit of the ambiance from inside here. Of course, it’s nowhere nearly as fun as actually eating here. Make sure to make your reservations in advance.

Next up is the United Kingdom Pavilion. I think this video captures the pavilion pretty well.

The attraction of the United Kingdom Pavilion is the EPCOT World Showcase Players. Here is King Arthur and the Holy Grail. The show is super funny.

Just like that, we’re off to France. EPCOT makes world travelling really easy. I love the fountain in the France Pavilion! It’s the perfect place to get a picture with your spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend. Brooke and I have some great pics from the fountain from our honeymoon. I highly recommend this spot!

Much like Canada, the attraction of France is a film. This on is entitled Impressions de France. I love the music in this film. The cool thing about the world showcase at EPCOT is that they do a pretty good job at capturing the country you are in. This film does France very well. The music…the scenery. It’s all so beautiful. If you haven’t taken in this film on a visit to EPCOT, I recommend watching this film. It might change your mind.

Next up around the World Showcase is Morocco. Much like the United Kingdom, this pavilion is more about the experience than having attractions. Walking around the Morocco Pavilion is really fun. Once inside, it really takes you away from the theme park vibe.

The attraction, if you will, in Morocco is this live performance of music like you might hear in Morocco. Yes, we’re giving you some culture on this virtual trip to Disney. Can you handle it? What’s fun about the virtual experience is that you can take it all in. I mean, without lines, you can get to take in some of the smaller things that you might skip in favor of the larger attractions. B’net Al Houwariyate is one performance I have skipped. It is very interesting, though. You should check it out.

The Japan Pavilion is one of my favorites. It’s so beautiful. I love the koi pond.

Japan doesn’t have an attraction. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t little things to keep you entertained. Even in the Mitsukoshi Store, they have this pick a pearl ceremony. This is not your average shopping experience. It’s kind of fun to take it in. Especially knowing that you won’t be tempted to purchase anything.

At the Teppan Edo, you get a show with your food. Brooke and I dined here on our honeymoon and loved it! Who knew dining could be so fun?

The Matsuriza Drummers are pretty good!

And we’re back to the USofA! Check out the Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps.

If you go to EPCOT, you absolutely MUST see the Voices of Liberty. Even if you don’t plan on taking in the film at the America Pavilion. This group is simply amazing!

Like so many others, the Voices of Liberty have their own take on Let it Go from Frozen. I couldn’t resist including it on our virtual tour.

Once the Voices of Liberty finish, you can go into the theater and see The American Adventure show.

I know some folks might not want to hear Christmas music before Thanksgiving. However, if you’re not one of them, here are the Voices of Liberty singing Christmas songs.

If you want some more Christmas music, I’ll close this virtual trip to EPCOT with the EPCOT version of the Candlelight Processional. I haven’t made it through the entire performance yet. It’s just so much different from the Disneyland Candlelight Processional. However, since we’re at EPCOT, I thought I’d include it here. This is the entire show (not an easy thing to find for the EPCOT show) with Edward James Olmos as the guest narrator. Enjoy.

  1. Reblogged this on DoomBuggy Runner and commented:
    As Greg, from WhyIRunDisney.com is running the inaugural Avengers Half Marathon this morning at Disneyland. I am going to reblog his continued efforts at virtual tours of Walt Disney World. This episode remains in Epcot, and ventures over to the World Showcase. This is probably my most favorite area of Disney. Unfortunately, Maelstrom is now gone, but it is still an exciting area to go, especially Illuminations!

  2. I love the world showcase at Epcot. The Voices of Liberty in UofA are amazing! Such harmony! Also, during the Christmas holidays each country has a storyteller who tells the story of their version of Christmas, quite interesting.
