New Exhibit Showcasing Modern-Day Competitions Opens in Morocco Pavilion at Epcot
One of my favorite pavilions in all of the World Showcase at Epcot has just opened a new exhibit. “Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition” showcases two extraordinary modern day competitions – Marathon des Sables (Marathon of the Sand) and Rallye Aicha des Gazelles du Maroc (Rally of the Gazelles). In addition, the new exhibit profiles the rich history of ancient inhabitants of the Sahara, the Berbers.
Guests visiting the new exhibit in the Morocco Pavilion will be treated to immersive experiences such as a lifelike diorama of the Marathon of the Sands race gear and trophies from Moroccan competitors. There is even an interactive photo op that highlights Rally of Gazelles which is an all-woman, off-road dessert rally. Since each of these amazing races takes place in the Sahara Dessert, Guest visiting “Race Against the Sun: Ancient Techniques to Modern Competition” will be able to learn about original inhabitants, the Berbers, and how they mastered the challenge of living in the formidable environment.
To celebrate the opening of the new installation, Tangerine Cafe in the Morocco Pavilion invites Guests to sample “sellou,” a food highlighted in “Race Against the Sun” that marathoners eat for energy during the race. Consisting of almonds and sesame seeds among other ingredients. sellou is the perfect boost the runners need to achieve their goal.
“Race Against the Sun” in the Morocco Pavilion is just one of the many exciting enhancements coming to Epcot and Walt Disney World in the coming years! Make sure to keep it here with MickeyBlog.com for all the latest!
