World Showcase Spotlight: Canada

We continue our tour of World Showcase and head to the other end of the lagoon for Canada!

The Canada Pavilion is home to one of the most popular restaurants on Walt Disney World property; Le Cellier Steakhouse.  The steakhouse is located in the cellar of the centerpiece of the Canada pavilion, the Hotel du Canada.  Le Cellier is a signature dining restaurant serving steaks, seafood, and regional cuisine inspired by the provinces of Canada.  Favorites include the “Le Cellier” Mushroom Filet Mignon and the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup.  Guests 21 years of age and older can enjoy Canadian wines and beers.  Click here to read a full review.  Reservations are strongly recommended at this restaurant and can be made 180 days in advance.

On your way to the entrance of Le Cellier, make sure to take a moment to take some pictures of the Victoria Gardens along with the quaint little cottage.  It’s a beautiful spot filled with many great photo opportunities. 

After you enjoy a meal at Le Cellier, make sure to take in a showing of “O Canada!”  “O Canada!” is an 18-minute show presented in Circle-Vision 360.  There are no chairs in the theater so you are required to stand but leaning posts are provided.  This allows you to turn to see the screen that goes 360 degrees around the room.  Martin Short hosts this panoramic tour of Canada from Quebec to Montreal and Niagara Falls to Vancouver.  Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila sings “Canada (You’re a Lifetime Journey)” as you’re surrounded by sweeping views of Canada’s pristine landscapes.  It’s really quite beautiful and makes me tear up a little every time…and I’m not even Canadian! 


The Canada pavilion has two shops; the Northwest Mercantile and The Trading Post.  The shops sell Canadian hockey gear, maple products, handmade jewelry, Canadian t-shirts, and other Canadian products.  There is also an outdoor kiosk that sells Off Kilter CDs, personalized leather items, Canadian flags, pins, mugs and other souvenirs.



If you love live entertainment, then you must see Off Kilter!  This kilt-wearing, Celtic rock band performs 30-minute sets throughout the day so you have several chances to catch them throughout your vacation.  They perform in kilts and play bagpipes. It’s quite the site to see!  Seating in their outdoor theater is limited but there is plenty of room to stand and enjoy the show.

The next time you visit Epcot, make sure to visit the Canada pavilion for some good food and some great photo opportunities!  What is your favorite part of the Canada pavilion?

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
