Epcot’s France Pavilion

When entering Epcot’s World Showcase after England, there is a bridge. You cross the bridge into Epcot’s France Pavilion.

French music is heard as you enter the French territory. The romance of France is showcased in this World Showcase Country in Epcot.

 

Disney’s France

Disney’s France Pavilion is themed to look like a Parisienne neighborhood with a pool and fountains and with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Most of the shops in this Disney attraction are actual shops selling French goods.

This Epcot attraction mirrors France’s cities and historical structures. It also includes two French restaurants, Monsieur Paul (formerly the Bistro de Paris) and Les Chefs de France as well as the eateries Les Halles Boulangerie and Patisserie and L’artisan des Glace ice-cream parlor.

Les Chefs de France

Epcot’s Chef de France was opened by French gastronomic legends Roger Vergé, Gaston Lenôtre and Paul Bocuse. Les Chefs de France opened at Epcot’s inception in 1982.

 

Ratatouille

In 2009, Disney introduced its smallest animatronic ever, Remy from the Disney animated feature Ratatouille! Remy appears at Les Chef de France several times daily. The Disney character from Ratatouille is brought around by a handler to appear at diners’ tables.

 

Croque-Monsieur

 

Croque Monsieur

A croque monsieur is a baked or fried boiled ham and cheese sandwich. The dish originated in French cafés and bars as a quick snack.

The Croque Monsieur is a favorite in Epcot’s France Pavilion. It was served in the Les Chefs de France restaurant, however, it is no longer on the menu.

You can, however, find it in Les Halles Boulangerie and Patisserie. I was lucky to have had it in Chef de France dining establishment. The chef there provided me with this Epcot recipe!
