This lounge is partially a secret lounge due to its hidden location, tucked away from the bulk of the International Food and Wine Festival crowds. You can find the Florida Blue Lounge in the former Restaurant Marrakesh, located in the back of EPCOT’s Morroco Pavilion, within the World Showcase.
The Florida Blue Lounge Experience
The Florida Blue Lounge is an exclusive experience requiring advanced registration. You can register for your free Guest pass online at FloridaBlue.com/Magic. No purchase is necessary to retrieve a free Guest pass for the lounge; only one pass per party is needed.
Upon entry to the lounge, you can enjoy complimentary beverages, seating, and even a craft opportunity. Complimentary beverages include Water, Sparkling Water, Juice, Cold Brew Coffee, and Moroccan Mint Tea.
If you’re feeling creative, you can stop by the lounge’s Sculpt station to create a free craft. Florida Blue focuses on how creating art can help release endorphins and help Guests stay healthy. You can create a personal mosaic tile to take home with you as a unique Walt Disney World souvenir.
This lounge offers the perfect location for a quick break while traveling around the World Showcase, especially during a hot day. The lounge will only be open to Guests through the end of EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival, so make sure to stop by before November 18, 2023.
Dining in Morocco
While you’re visiting EPCOT’s Morocco Pavilion, make sure to stop by the other great dining locations nearby. For EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival, Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina is open, serving delicious Moroccan cuisine.
Settled on the shore of World Showcase Lagoon, dine at Spice Road Table, the pavilion’s table service dining location. This restaurant requires advanced dining reservations.
Morocco’s last dining location, Oasis Sips and Sweets is small but mighty. This restaurant offers delicious Moroccan pastries and the Frozen Citrus Pomegranate Slushy, a fan-favorite cocktail when spiked with Mandarin Vodka.
