EPCOT is a feast for the eyes, but Spice Road Table in the Morocco pavilion is a feast in many ways. The recent updates to this classic Walt Disney World restaurant ensure that the pavilion stays beautiful and refreshed. Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley recently took to Instagram to demonstrate the work put into this modern Marrakesh.
Riddley joined EPCOT Art Director, Michael Wells, to tour the recent changes to Spice Road Table. The reason for changes is because Disney acquired the businesses previously run by Marrakesh Moroccan Restaurant, LLC inside the pavilion. With the new management, Disney decided an update was in order.
Spice Road Table provides delicious Mediterranean flavors alongside some of the best waterfront views in EPCOT. The interior is now just as beautiful with bold colors and patterns, as well as authentic props. Metal hand-painted signs were imported from Morocco with Arabic and French descriptions on them. The verisimilitude of the atmosphere comes from the Disney team’s effort to reproduce complex textures, patterns, and forms, something that is synonymous with Moroccan culture. Be sure to make a reservation at Spice Road Table to experience the ambiance for yourself!
Many other changes are occurring at the Morocco pavilion and across EPCOT. Currently, the fountain is being refurbished and is blocked by large planters. Guests can still access the back of the pavilion via a small passageway to the left. Have you seen some of the changes taking place in EPCOT’s Morocco? What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
