PHOTOS: Morocco Pavilion at EPCOT Reopens with Very Minimal Social Distancing Measures

The Morocco pavilion in EPCOT is home to shopping, dining, and exhibits. We walked around the pavilion to get a better idea of any new social distancing measures put in place.

The Morocco pavilion has some small spaces, so we were curious about how they accounted for social distancing.

The “Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition” exhibit opened late last year and showcases two modern-day competitions.

The exhibit mostly looks the same, and even the “Rally of the Gazelles” photo-op is still accessible.

Further into the pavilion is the Bazaar.

There weren’t very many social distancing measures added to the Bazaar area.

We only saw four of these small hand sanitizer bottles in the pavilion.

There was a social distancing marker almost directly in front of the register, but this would not ensure a six-foot distance from anyone. The registers are protected with plexiglass.

There were social distancing markers leading into this section of the pavilion.

Inside, directional arrows ensured guests went in one direction, and doors were marked for entrance or exit only.

There were no social distancing markers leading into Souk-Al-Magreb either.

Tangerine Cafe had social distancing markers leading inside, and one door was marked as an exit only. But, going in or out of these doors brings you close to other guests sitting outside.

The register inside also had plexiglass.

The attached Pastries and Coffee Bar had more social distancing markers on the floor.

Arrows directed guests towards the exit door.

Indoor seating was open, though no guests were inside.

What do you think of the relatively minimal social distancing measures in the Morocco pavilion? We’ll be keeping an eye for any changes to social distancing throughout the parks, so make sure to follow along with us at WDWNT.

  1. I’m surprised they’d open this section with so little control. An area of Epcot I’d avoid.
