Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles Opens in France Pavilion

Posted on
Boulangerie Patisserie les Halles has opened in Epcot's France pavilion, in the space adjacent to the movie theater exit. The new bakery, which replaces the former Boulangerie Patisserie in the pavilion, is much more spacious and offers a new, expanded menu. Offerings include pastries and other sweets, soups, sandwiches, salads and authentic French dishes such as quiche, Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese) and pissaladiere, a pizza-like dish from the South of France. The bakery opens at 9 a.m. every morning, before the official 11 a.m. World Showcase opening time. The Disney Dining Plan is accepted for many items at this location. The former patisserie is being remodeled and will soon reopen as an ice cream shop called Glacier.

I would never say that one World Showcase pavilion is more beautiful than another. Each is picturesque and captivating in its own way. But I would certainly be willing to use different adjectives to describe each pavilion. For example, I would call Morocco mysterious. Serene would work well to describe Japan. And one might use … Continue reading "Epcot’s France Pavilion – Part One"

The Music of “Impressions de France”

Posted on
From the first peaceful notes of a lone flute to the concluding triumph of a full symphony orchestra reinforced by pipe organ, "Impressions de France" at Epcot's France pavilion has thrilled generations of visitors as much for its music as for its visual panorama of western Europe's largest and most varied landscape. The 18-minute presentation is the oldest film still running in its original version at Walt Disney World. Displayed across five screens in a 200-degree arc - the normal field of vision of a (very comfortably) seated human - the presentation has played roughly 200,000 times by my calculations since Epcot's opening day on Oct. 1, 1982.
