In this case, it would be my age, not the pavilion’s. As an elementary school aged child, I remember not being impressed with the Morocco pavilion – not like I was with the Japan pavilion. To me, my first impressions of the Morocco pavilion were that there wasn’t a lot to look at and there was nothing there I liked to eat. Boy was I wrong! As I’ve matured I’ve learned to truly appreciate the intricate craftsmanship found at the Morocco pavilion, the beautiful working agricultural display, and the amazing secrets waiting to be discovered in the twisting alleys. I even have gone out of my comfort zone and tasted many new flavors at what is now one of my favorite eateries in Epcot, Restaurant  Marrakesh.  I hope that as you explore the Morocco pavilion, you allow yourself to have an adventure. Look down those alleys, open doors to find hidden exhibits, listen to the environment around you, and most of all get those taste buds ready for some delicious food!
