I love the Canada pavilion just as much as I love Canada.
Love the movie, enjoy Off Kilter, relive my honeymoon by walking around the hotel back end.
I like Le Cellier--I remember when it was a buffet cafeteria style restaurant in the mid 80s.

When we lived in Montana, we took a road trip to Vancouver Island and Victoria. We visited the Buchart Gardens. So when we go to WDW and visit "Canada" we love to go to the Victoria Gardens to remind us of our wonderful trip to Victoria. And I love the film, even though I get motion sick watching the 360 video.

I love Off Kilter! Definitely my favorite band at Epcot. The waterfall area is very nice too. I do think they need another attraction besides the Martin Short thing.

Canada is my favorite WS country. We watch the movie TWICE every trip because we enjoy it so much (Martin Short is a hoot and the mountains are beautiful!) The shop has fun stuff to look at and the grounds are beautiful. I also love LeCellier.

Yes,there was a shop called La Boutique Des Provinces that sold a variety of items with Anne of Green Gables theme, plus decoupage, pewter, and other items crafted by Canadian artists.

The Hotel area hasn't been the same since they closed it.

I always found it too cliché, but that's because I'm a canadian.

When you say the hotel, are you talking about the chateau frontenac at the back? (it's been a long time since I've gone, I don't recall everything).
I admit I haven't seen the movie, and don't plan to see it either.

But I'm glad people seems to like it. It's always been a running joke over here than the Canadian Pavillon seems a bit lame, underused, compared to the others.

I didn't know back then that we had the best restaurent in WDW

The "rocks" blend in perfectly with the Canada theme and the first time I saw the lights and speakers coming out of them,I did several double-takes!

I've always thought it would be the perfect spot to put a skating rink! Wouldn't it be cool to rent skates and skate in Disney World?

The Canada movie is probably the best in the WS. The scenery is amazing! Plus Canada pavilion gets a thumbs up in my book just because they gave us modern ice hockey and other than American football, hockey rules !

I love the Canada. I live in the Detroit suburbs and work in Detroit with my office overlooking the Detroit River so I have a great view of Canada. I love Smarties and am always so happy when I can get them at Canada in WDW!

We did that on our honeymoon and loved it! Some day we plan to go back.

We also love the Canada pavilion. And as another poster said, their shop is great.

Being Canadian my honest opinion of the WS pavilion is that it is a poor representation of what Canada really is and what it has to offer. There is way more to Canada then maple syrup and totem poles and I wish they would update it, I spoke with a Australian outside of Canada’s pavilion once and there where amazed that we did not live in igloos

There's no bar, you can't get into the restaurant unless you reserve in the previous decade, and they serve Moosehead outside the restaurant and not Unibroue...Canada's not my favorite.

I only wish they would sell the Cheddar Cheese soup out on the walkway instead of just in the restaurant.

I heard they once had a Unibroue cart outside. They need to bring that back.
