2. Outdoor Atmosphere
The interior of Les Halles looks like a French café at a train station, but the best part is the display windows filled with beautiful desserts. This is what everyone takes photos of. But if you venture outside you’ll find a few bistro tables and a much better view of the pavilion. There are only a few of these tables available, but they offer the best experience when eating at Les Halles. You will be fully immersed in the ambiance and beauty of the France pavilion as you sip on your cappuccino and nibble on your Napoleon.
1. Open Early
Most of the World Showcase doesn’t open until 11am, but Les Halles is open bright and early. Les Halles opens when the park opens, so a couple hours before the majority of the World Showcase. This makes Les Halles a great follow up stop after rushing over to Norway at rope drop to get in line for Frozen. Les Halles is also a nice alternative to the busy morning over in Future World as guests try to get on Test Track and Soarn’. If you’re looking for a slower, relaxing start to your day, head to France early in the morning. Some people might think meeting princesses over at Akershus is the way to go, but there truly is something magical in those pastry layers and cream.
