Imagineers were careful to select architectural features so specific to each locale that by sight alone Guests would recognize which country they were entering. In designing each Pavilion, to be as authentic as possible, design teams consulted […]

The United Kingdom Pavilion is one of my favorite stops along Epcot’s World Showcase. It’s a prime location for viewing IllumiNations, especially with patio dining at the Rose & Crown.
