I used to like the Canada Pavilion ok - seemed like there wasn't much there, but we always watched the Martin Short movie. BUT, when my husband and I went on a no-kids anniversary trip to Epcot, we went to watch the movie. There was still 15 minutes and we were the only 2 people waiting. There were 2 cast members there - 2 college age girls. My husband is a talker - so he walked over to them and said "Hi ladies! How are things in the great state of Canada!!" Obviously he was playing around with them and he knows Canada is not a state, but they tore into him and proceeded to chew him out and tell him that Canada is NOT a state and NOT a part of the US and so on and so on. He finally told them to chill out and take a break and we left without seeing the movie or anything else in there. Haven't been back to the Canada pavilion.

So you still have no clue as to just how incredibly insulting your husband's comment was?? If I'd been there I would have torn him a new one. That comment isn't funny- it shows disrespect and ignorance all at the same time.

We love the Canada Pavilion. We always walk through the shop, we have seen the show.

We also have yearly pictures we take there. In December we really enjoyed the Holiday storyteller. We also like the band next to it. We use to eat at Le Cellier every visit.

We enjoy World Showcase. We visit all the countries.

This is one of my favorite spots to sneak off to and spend a few minutes relaxing and cooling off!



Now, if there was just a walk-up cart where I could get some cheddar cheese soup and pretzel bread to-go, it would be perfect!

I think its one of the most beautiful pavillions. For us though, there just isn't enough there. I would love some more shops. It just seems kind of under-utilized.

We LOVE Canada. My kids always want to spend extra time in the shop and we HAVE to watch the movie every time. My dh and ds go to Canada hunting every year, so they get a bit of their "Canada fix" in Epcot before their trip. DS11 even chose this year's Mickey Ears in Canada during our trip a couple of weeks ago:

We like it. We always have a meal here, go round the back for a few pictures, sit on the benches for a while and visit the shoppe.

Several of my favorite WDW vids involve a stroll through this area, and I've spent many an afternoon stumbling back and forth between Off Kilter and the British Invasion performances. Does anyone know if La Fin Du Monde can be purchased other than at Le Cellier?

In the Canada pavilion? No. According to Beers and Ears, Brown Derby has it. One year it was sold at the international beer booth at the food & wine festival. Last year there was a Unibroue sold at a kiosk in Canada but only during the festival...I do not remember if it was Fin du Monde, but I doubt it since Le Cellier only has it in bottles.

They haven't said anything about Unibroue at the beer stand coming back for the festival. The actual Festival booth is said to be serving Moosehead.

Thanks, we'll be there Oct 11 through 17 and I'll look for it at F&W. We were last to F&W in 2009, we're over due.
