Next up in my pictorial blog series "Walking Tour of Epcot's Pavilions" is the country of Canada. Today we are going to take a walk through the beautiful Canada pavilion, explore the shops, the wonderful restaurant that is there and the always beautiful gardens. In additions we'll stop and watch a movie and enjoy some wonderful entertainment.
So, come along and take the walk with me.
Very different from the other countries, the main entrance to the shops and movie is up the steps.
The handicap entrance up to the shops is to the right of the stairs.
On the main sidewalk there are a couple of kiosk where you can buy Canadian related merchandise.
Also, you can purchase popcorn, snack, drink and Canadian draft beer at this stand.
You will see a number of these beautiful totem poles in the pavilion.
Here's the entrance to the Trading Post shop.
The other shop in the pavilion is called Northwest Mercantile.
Both shops are connected inside. So you don't have to go outside to get from one to the other. Here are some pictures from inside both of the shops.
Further up is the Hotel du Canada. The hotel sits on top of the Le Cellier restaurant and is not an area for guests.
Ever wonder what the plaque on the hotel reads? Well, wonder no more.
Like the hotel, the buildings across from it are also not guest areas. However, is it a great spot to get away from the crowds and relax.
Here's looking back at the hotel from the walkway down to the O'Canada movie.
The back of the hotel is a great place to see the waterfall and rock formations. It's a pretty neat pplace!
The handicap entrance to the O'Canada movie is located next to the Le Cellier restaurant.
The entrance to the O'Canada movie looks like you are going into a cave.
The movie theater is a stand up, 360 movie in the round. Martin Short is the host of this very entertaining movie. It's definately worth seeing.
As with all the countries, there is a Kidcot location that is very popular.
The Victoria Gardens are really beautiful! I really enjoy taking the walk through the gardens to enjoy the sights and smells.
Le Cellier is one of the most popular restaurants in Epcot. You have to be pretty quick to get reservations to this restaurant. However, if you do, you will be treated to a fabulous meal. My wife and I have eaten there on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed.
A couple more pictures of the pavilion and gardens.
OK, I know you stuck you head in one of those holes and had your picture taken; didn't you?
You can find the very popular Off Kilter performing on the stage to the left of the pavilion. They always draw a big crowd and their music can be heard just about all throughout the World Showcase.
I hope you enjoyed your walk with me. I enjoyed having you come along!
Well, that’s all for now. As my good friend says “see ya real soon”….DizneyMike
