Morocco, the 8th pavillion on the clockwise tour around the World
Showcase, distinguishes itself mainly as a result of the carefully
themed bazaars, stalls, and alleyways that turn this pavillion

with carpets at Casablanca Carpets, leather goods and straw

brass ornaments at the Brass Bazaar.

distinct sections. The Ville Nouvelle )New City) features
the Royal Gallery and Tourist Information Office, whereas the
Medina (Old City) hosts the bustling market and tiled landmarks.

Marrakesh Prayer Tower were actually imported from Morocco,
and hand assembled to add to the realism of the pavillion, which
even by Disney's standards is very high indeed.
The Restaurant Marrakesh offers guests a complete Moroccan
dining experience, complete with exotic belly dancers, but tends
to be a little expensive by comparison with other restaurants
at around $50 - $60 for a meal for two. Having said that though,
the atmosphere and entertainment is always excellent, and could
justify the additional cost.
