United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot (Mary Poppins, Alice, fish and chips)

HomeUnited Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot
United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot (Mary Poppins, Alice, fish and chips)

One of the most unique elements of Epcot is the World Showcase, which is home to a total of 11 countries.

Exploring each of the pavilions is one of the best parts of the park, in addition to, of course, riding attractions, eating, and drinking around the world.

The countries have so much to look at, eat, drink, and buy. Plus, some even have special themed-entertainment and character meet and greets (like Alice and Mary Poppins)!

If you want to know more about the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot, we have you covered. 

Here we take a deep dive into the country that is popular and for good reason thanks to fish and chips, the pub (so many pints to choose from!), the chance to meet several Disney characters, the entertainment, and more.

Dining

In the United Kingdom pavilion, you’ll find 3 Quick Service options and 1 Table Service restaurant. All offer a variety of UK-inspired dishes and beverages.

Quick Service Restaurants

Rose & Crown Pub

Rose & Crown Pub is one of our favorite spots in the United Kingdom pavilion.

If you want authentic UK beer and other beverages, you’ll want to stop at the pub.

rose and crown pub - epcot - united kingdom pavilion

There is limited seating in here, which is great on a hot day. But, the tables fill up fast.

We recommend trying one of the pub blends, especially the Golden or as it is now known the “Golden Smith.”

golden beer pint - rose and crown pub - united kingdom pavilion

This was originally half Harp Lager and Half Bass ale, but the latter is no longer being produced on tap for the states. So, the pub blend is half Harp Lager and half Smithwick’s.

Don’t worry, you can still order it as a Golden and it still very much tastes like the original.

You can also order food from the bar (usually just fish and chips or a scotch egg).

There is even a vegan fish and chips option (above) that’s delicious!

Yorkshire County Fish Shop

Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a popular Quick Service spot. Sometimes the line builds here, but, thankfully, Mobile Order is available.

In addition to fish and chips, you can also just order a side of chips. These are some of the best fries in Disney World. And you get a decent amount for a good price!

Yorkshire also has select beers on tap.

UK Beer Cart

If you want to grab a quick beer as you’re passing through the pavilion, the UK Beer Cart is a good option.

Entertainment

If you’re looking for some fun entertainment, you should definitely check out Command Performance (formerly The Hooligans).

They perform daily inside the gazebo!

They are really good. They’re a local Orlando band playing British rock from the 1960s through the 1990s.

Characters

The United Kingdom pavilion is where you can meet, not 1, but 2 Disney characters!

Alice

First, there is Alice from Alice in Wonderland, who you can find in the front of the pavilion outside The Tea Caddy in the garden area.

Alice in Wonderland

You can meet her at different times throughout the day next.

Unfortunately, her meet and greet times are not posted in the My Disney Experience app.

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins also roams the United Kingdom pavilion.

Hedge Maze

There is a fun (and complimentary) hedge maze in front of the gazebo! It is a great way to keep little ones entertained while they burn off energy.

Kidcot Fun Stop

Like the 10 other country pavilions in the World Showcase, the United Kingdom has a Kidcot Fun Stop location.

Disney PhotoPass Photographer

If you want to take a nice photo in the United Kingdom pavilion, there may be a Disney PhotoPass photographer available.

They might not always be around, but if they are, you’ll be able to spot them either by the green umbrella they’re standing underneath or thanks to their photography equipment and Disney uniform.

You may even be able to have your photo taken on the steps in the garden area across from the gazebo!

united kingdom photopass - epcot

Remember: unless you have Memory Maker, Memory Maker Day One, or a PhotoPass entitlement with your Annual Pass, you will have to pay to download or print these photos.

If there is a PhotoPass photographer, be sure to also ask if they have any fun “Magic Shots”!

Picture Spot

While there isn’t a Disney PhotoPass photographer here, taking pictures outside The Tea Caddy and near where Alice and Mary Poppins meet make for a super cute photo-pop!

Another, yet unofficial, and also very popular picture spot is at the telephone booths! How can you not get a photo here?

Fun fact: You used to be able to actually call these. Yes, they were once working phones. We don’t think you can do that anymore, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to try! Here are the phone numbers courtesy of Orlando Informer (long distance rates may apply):

  • Right phone booth: (407) 827-9861
  • Left phone booth: (407) 827-9862
  • Center phone booth: (407) 827-9863

Best Harmonious Views

You can find some decent Harmonious view in the United Kingdom pavilion.

However, there are a lot of trees in some areas, so you’ll want to be careful where you stand.

You can also sit in the seating area located next to the Rose & Crown Dining Room. The views here are quite nice — and it’s a bonus to have a seat after a long day.

united kingdom harmonious views

There are also 2 nearby wheelchair accessible viewing sections — one towards the United Kingdom pavilion and the other near Port of Entry (shown below) for guests in wheelchairs and anyone in their party.

accessible harmonious viewing area in Canada

These areas will be roped off and are first-come, first-served. They can fill up fast, so you need to make sure you arrive at a decent time. 

You may also think the seating area next to Yorkshire County Fish Shop would make a great spot to watch Harmonious.

yorkshire county fish shop - harmonious views - united kingdom

While it is, more often than not this particular space is closed for private events. So keep that in mind!

FYI: There is also a Harmonious dining package available at Rose & Crown Dining Room that you can purchase if you want to sit and eat during the show.

Other reasons United Kingdom makes a great spot to watch Harmonious:

  • Most importantly, there are restrooms in the pavilion and inside Rose & Crown Pub
  • You can easily grab a snack and beverage at 3 Quick Service locations, even though the options are pretty much limited to fish and chips
  • Canada isn’t far away, if you want other food and beverage choices
  • There are several activities in the pavilion, like watching the band in the gazebo, the hedge maze, Kidcot Fun Stops, and more

Here’s what Harmonious’ view looks like from the United Kingdom pavilion:

Be sure to grab your viewing spot no less than 60 minutes before showtime. Space can fill up quickly. 

You can find that night’s Harmonious showtime in the My Disney Experience app.
