The France pavilion is part of the World Showcase within Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort.
The France pavilion is themed to look like a Paris neighborhood with a pool and fountains and with a view of the Eiffel Tower
in the distance. Most of the shops on the streets are actual shops selling French goods such as Guerlain
perfumes. The pavilion features "Impressions de France"
, a panoramic movie which visits France's cities and historical structures. It also includes two French restaurants, the Bistro de Paris and Les Chefs de France, and a bakery, the Boulangerie Patisserie.
Belle, Beast, and Gaston from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", which was partly inspired by the version by French filmmaker Jean Cocteau, make appearances at the France Pavilion. Other characters with French backgrounds, such as those from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "The Aristocats" also appear frequently.
