A little bit of Provence in Walt Disney World

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

IMG_1733-WDW-EPCOT-France-Provencal-dry-goods:) There are two parts to to the EPCOT theme park in Walt Disney World. The front of the park is known as “Future World”; there’s lots of stuff there related to the sciences and new technological advances. The other part of EPCOT is known as the “World Showcase”. Pavilions are arranged around a lagoon. Visiting these pavilions is known as “doing the country walk. If you go left coming from Future World to walk around the lagoon, you will start with Mexico. But if you go right, you start with Canada, cruise through the United Kingdom, cross the International Gateway and then you are in France.

This is pretty much my favorite pavilion to visit on the country walk. Great food and wine can be had here, not to mention the almighty Grand Marnier slushie! Look, we’ve arrived at the little shop that sells wine by the glass or by the bottle, and also French cook books, kitchen utensils and dry goods. Let’s go inside!

Unfortunately, this stuff doesn’t really go with anything in my house. My yellows are more Tuscan, and my blues are more cobalt I do still love looking at these Provençal patterns. There is something about them that speaks of the aroma of fresh bread and the sound of the rooster crowing. Oh, and the entire shop smells like lavender! Can you imagine going to Provence and driving past those fields brimming with orderly rows of bushy, blooming lavendar – with the windows down? Heaven!

    I love the combination of blue and yellow in these linens. They do remind me of France.

    Another Triple!! Very Good. Should your travels take you to the West Coast around Pacific Grove (Near Monterey), there is a wonderful restaurant called Fandangos set near a scenic parking lot. You won’t care the French provencial food and great wines mesh with the country feel of the interior. http://www.fandangorestaurant.com/
