France is the ninth country in our clockwise tour around the
World Showcase, and sits in between Morocco
and The United Kingdom.
As might be expected, the France skyline is dominated by a replica
of the Eiffel Tower, however the streets which are (again
as expected) kept spotlessly clean by Disney staff, are a long
way from the streets of Paris itself.
The French pavillion is themed to resemble a pre-WW1 France,
complete with buskers, mime acts and stret theatre.
As with many of the pavillions, France features a movie about
the country. Titled Impressions de France it's well worth
seeing at least once. The film shows many of the "attractions"
of France, accompanied by music from Debussy, Offenbach and Satie.
Note that the filmshow tends to get quite crowded from mid morning
on but it's a nice air-conditioned setting to get away from the
heat for a short while.
France it famous for it's food, and the pavillion does justice
to the reputation, with a total of four restaurants.
The Bistro de Paris is an award winning full-service restaurant,
featuring top quality French cuisine created by genuine French
chefs daily. It's full-service environment and quality of presentation
being reflected in a fairly high price per person.
Contrary to the name, the Chefs De France
provides a more intimite Bistro experience than the Bistro De
Paris, but it is an excellent restaurant, and one that shouldn't
Au Petit Cafe and the Boulangerie Patisserie are
both pavement cafes offering various snacks and pastries for a
more affordable price.
Next on the clockwise tour is The United Kingdom.
