Quiet place(s) for conference call at Epcot?

I have a 20 minute conference call I have to attend today in the middle of our time in Epcot. I'd like to avoid going outside the park or back to my hotel for such a short call. Any tips on the best quiet places to do a quick phone call in Epcot?

Around the building to the right of the entrance to Journey into Imagination.

I know you said you didn't want to leave the park, but if you leave through the International Gateway you could find many quiet spots. If you continued walking to the boardwalk there would be even more choices.

Morocco can be quiet, but probably not for 20 minutes.

This is a great spot. Men's room over there, too! Down by the Ellen's energy Adventure might be quiet as well. Nobody really goes down that way.

I quite agree with this as well. Aside from those that are heading over to use the restrooms behind the building, you won't find a soul there. Pick a bench and conference away!

I second the benches near Universe of Energy. I have done two conference calls there. Just a little soft back ground music and usually no one else around.

Definitely here.

Also, as long as there is no musical event, the garden behind the UK Pavilion.

Having done this a lot...,

Museum in Morocco. Or the courtyard next door to it
Benches by international gateway
Back by where the band plays in UK. Go all the way to the back to avoid maze noise

Food and Wine cuts into my other suggestions

Epcot is the best possible place for your call, since no matter where you are in the park you can find a relatively people free spot. That said, hopefully your fellow callers are aware you are at WDW. You dont notice the music when you are there, but the people on the other side of the call can hear it behind you no matter where you are.

Behind the store across from Duffy's meet & greet. That's where my DH went and there was a humorous moment when Duffy came out and wouldn't leave until DH gave him a hug. It was quiet though. ;-)

How about the red phone booth boxes in UK? Might be hot in there for 20 minutes, but at least you would have privacy. I heard the phones in there were unhooked (maybe they took the boxes away too? Not sure about that...)

Nothing worse than having to go into "Conference Call mode" while in a Disney park, lol. Have had to do those a couple of times while there. Hope you get back into the magic in no time! Have a great trip.
