PHOTOS: Walls Block Off Back Portion of Morocco Pavilion in EPCOT, Suggestive Fan-Favorite Photo Spot May Finally Be Removed

Last October, Disney officially took over ownership of the Morocco Pavilion at EPCOT, which had been struggling financially. Since then, Disney has been changing elements of the pavilion, including updating Spice Road Table and adding props throughout. Now construction walls have been erected blocking off the back half of the pavilion.

Some scaffolding is visible just past the walls. Tables and chairs had previously been set out in some of the pavilion’s empty space.

All of the pavilion’s non-waterfront shops, as well as Restaurant Marrakesh, have remained closed during this time.

Restaurant Marrakesh is no longer accessible, which may indicate that changes are coming for the shuttered dining location.

We didn’t look over the walls (as you’re really not supposed to for your own safety), but that scaffolding is around a particular area of interest.

This suggestive chimney in the back of the pavilion has become a popular photo spot in recent times for all the wrong reasons, perhaps something Disney would like to bring an end to give their family-friendly business practices.

What are you hoping to see in the future of the Morocco Pavilion? Let us know in the comments.

“Suggestive” had to see what was so wrong about it and of course it’s only Twitter in an uproar by people making things up in their own head.

I don’t get it. Do people think the chimney is phallic or something?

I was just at Epcot on Monday with my wife and got our picture with the “special chimney” so I’m glad if it’s going we got our shots before it went. And in masks, so a very narrow window of opportunity.

I did really like the food in the restaurant. Hope it comes back

It would be nice to see another Country take over that space. When Epcot first opened they said that more Country’s were going to go in-between the ones that are there now.
