Epcot’s Canada Pavilion

Located between the United Kingdom Pavilion and the main entrance to World Showcase guests are able to experience Epcot’s Canada Pavilion.   Turning right as you enter World Showcase from Future World, you approach the Canada Pavilion which showcases the Rockies, Furriers and Trappers, and Indians. The most prominent landmark you see is Hotel du Canada, patterned after the French Gothic design of the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa.

There is so much beauty to enjoy in the Canada Pavilion including the beautiful Victoria Gardens, the Rocky Mountain Waterfalls, and the Totem poles.

The Pavilion showcases a variety of the cultures you would find when visiting, including Native Indian villages, a French-flavored chateau and the Scottish influence of the Maritimes.  Beautiful gardens, the Rocky Mountains, and a refreshing 30-foot waterfall are all part of the landscape of Canada!

Guests can also find a signature dining experience, an amazing Circle Vision Canadien film, and serene spots to stop and take a break from the bustle of Epcot.
