Restaurant Marrakesh isn’t the most beloved or talked about restaurant on Disney property, but there are some really amazing things about it! Marrakesh is a great way to learn a bit more about this culture and enjoy fantastic food while you’re at it! Here are 8 things you’ll love about Restaurant Marrakesh.
1. Unique Dining
When you have a meal at Restaurant Marrakesh, don’t expect foods or flavors that you’ve experienced before. This food is completely unique to Morocco. From couscous dishes to bastilla to hummus to kebabs to meshoui, this menu has it all. And if you don’t know what some of these are, the knowledgeable cast members will enlighten you. Or you’ll just have to taste them to find out!
I love that every sense comes alive in this restaurant. Throughout your meal you’ll be serenaded by live Moroccan musicians. They play for short blocks, and come and go several times. This music isn’t disruptive and adds a wonderful soundtrack to your meal. They also usually play for the Marrakesh dancers…
…These dancers really cool! This is an element of the Marrakesh dining experience that is most unusual. But I think that adds to the uniqueness of the restaurant. These are belly dancers that come out when the musicians do. Their dancing is authentic and beautiful, and it really helps to get immersed in the culture.

Restaurant Marrakesh, along with the entire Morocco pavilion, is gorgeous. The main dining area is a completely open room. There are ornate rugs mixed with tile flooring throughout that carry the room from one section to another. Massive mosaic columns stretch from floor to ceiling, which compliment the stunning glass lanterns that hang above you.
5. Concert Packages
A really cool feature of Restaurant Marrakesh is its partnership with Festival concerts. Most of the time, when there is a concert series during an Epcot Festival, like Food and Wine or Flower and Garden or Candlelight Processional, restaurants around World Showcase will host special concert packages. Basically a meal and a ticket combined. An awesome deal!
6. Dining Plan
Another nice perk of Marrakesh is that is accepts the Disney Dining Plan! Guests on a Disney vacation want to enjoy a nice meal but also get a deal – this is the way to do it. Restaurant Marrakesh is not ridiculously expensive, but it is a nice sit down meal. The dining plan helps. And it’s available for lunch and dinner!
Like everything in World Showcase, and specifically the Morocco pavilion, Marrakesh is completely authentic. Being in this restaurant and pavilion doesn’t feel like being on a set, it feels like being in the country itself. From the look of the restaurant, the flavors of the food, the sounds of the entertainment, this is Morocco.
Having a great sit down restaurant in the Park is always awesome. Now, you’re not in short supply of that in Epcot, but you still have a great choice in Marrakesh. I love that this restaurant is in the Morocco pavilion because that area is so, so gorgeous. Eating here allows you some built in time to peruse the pavilion and get lost in an Arabian Night!
