France

Upon entering the France Pavilion in World Showcase, you can’t miss the Eiffel Tower in the background.  Continuing into the pavilion you cross over a bridge that is a replica of the original Pont des Arts that was in France.  You will step into a time of art, beauty and vibrant life and it will feel like you are actually in France.  Featuring a wonderful film, some excellent food, stores to browse, and characters to greet, you will see just what France has to offer.

Attractions:

Impressions de France – An 18 minute (or so) long movie will give you a great tour of France.  A 200° view, across 5 screens will take you to various places such as Cannes, French Alps, Versailles and the Eiffel Tower itself.  The music to this film is wonderful and showcases various famous French composers!  You do get to sit while seeing this film and there is a chance that this may come across as boring to small children.  Overall, it’s worth a viewing!

Entertainment:

Serveur Amusant – This act features two waiters preforming acrobatics using a table and chairs for their tricks and your amusement.  They perform at various times daily.

Character Meet and Greet – France is home to Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, as well as Princess Aurora.  All can be found in the gardens during the day for autographs and photos.

Shopping:

Givenchy – Only place in the US where you can get the entire line of Givenchy makeup.

Guerlain Paris – Inside you will find various makeups and perfumes for the ladies.  Names like Shalimar and Insolence can be found here.
