Around the “Disney” World – China Pavilion

China is one of the pavilions located over at Epcot, in the World Showcase.  Located between Norway and Germany, China is home to Reflections of China, one of the Circle-Vision 360 shows that you will find at Epcot.  Reflections of China is one of the movies that I like to see, as it gives me a picture of China that you don’t often see very often.  That, in a nutshell, is what makes Epcot’s World Showcase such a great place to visit — for most of us, we aren’t going to be able to travel to China, or Japan, or Morocco, or even the UK, so being able to come to Epcot gives us some ideas on what life is like in those parts of the world.  But I digress.

In addition to Reflections of China, the China Pavilion is also home to two dining locations: the Nine Dragons Restaurant and the Lotus Blossom Cafe.  While I have heard mixed reviews about the Lotus Blossom Cafe, my friend Melissa found some reasons to check out Lotus Blossom over Nine Dragons.  If you have eaten at either of these locations, please feel free to comment and let us know what you thought of them.

For our family, China is a quick getaway — a place to relax, take in a movie, but not spend a whole lot of time at.  For those that love exploring every detail of the World Showcase, China has some wonderful art pieces to examine.  Explore the Temple of Heaven before seeing the movie.  Reflect a dreamy Disney day at the reflecting pool.  Do some shopping at the House of Good Fortune, or just take a break from all of the hustle and bustle of a busy Epcot day.  There is something for everyone at the China Pavilion.

    We stop at the shop and I always get a fan w/ my name written on it. It started as something inexpensive for a souvenir and now its tradition…just like sake in Japan.
