PHOTOS: New Permanent Festival Area Opens Between Morocco and France at EPCOT

A new courtyard with seating has opened around the Brazil booth, between the France and Morocco Pavilions, in EPCOT.

The Belgium booth has previously appeared in this area, so a sign was directing guests to its new home. It was supposed to be here, but the project wasn’t completed on time.

There are a few standing tables outside the courtyard and several more inside.

A paved pathway leads to the area, which is set apart from the rest of the walkway and will make a great place to sit or stand during festivals.

This space has been used for booths before, but it now seems to be a permanent installation. Given that Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure has taken over the rest of this World Showcase expansion pad, it makes sense that this will stay here and block the show building from guest view. The small space couldn’t be used for much else anyway.

  1. We were there a few weeks ago when the construction wall was still up. I was guessing they might be making this a permanent store for Remy’s merch. It makes more sense to have it here than all the way over near the UK.
