we LOVED marrakesh! my kids both really enjoyed it - my 4 year old is still showing off her belly dancing skills!
there was a belly dancer and musician (whatever kind they are, i can’t remember, sorry) - and they were in the middle of the floor. there are tables all around, and it seemed you’d have a decent view anywhere, but she invited kids to come up and dance with her…so cute!!
here is the link to my (unfinished, sorry) trip report with our food pics!
As I think I’ve stated in another thread, I’ve never personally eaten there. However, my MIL and FIL have and loved it. My FIL especially LOVED the belly dancers! Now every time he’s in Epcot, he makes a special effort to see the belly dancers when they’re outside dancing with the band that plays in Morroco.
I’ve never had a bad meal there. I know there are some others here who have, but my experiences at Marrakesh have always been positive. I love their food, and their service is some of the best at WDW (at least it was when I was there).
We are glad you posted this thread too. We’ve been thinking about trying Marrakesh for something different. We have never eaten there but have been wondering what the food and atmosphere is like. I think we might try it when we are there in October. For those that have been there, will the kids like the food or is it too “different”?
I like Marrakesh a lot but my husband does NOT like it at all, so it’s a mixed bag for us. I think last time we went we did that family style dinner where they basically give you a little taste of everything. I REALLY liked the lemon chicken and their couscous was SO good. The best part was trying all the yummy little Moroccan pastries they bring to your table. Daniel thought everything was kinda bland and unimpressive but I really liked it. The atmosphere is cool & the belly dancing shows are fun to watch!
Hi Cavey! Good to see you. We always try to encourage the kids to try something different, especially when eating at the different countries at Epcot (steer them away from chicken nuggets and french fries). There is always the “safer” selections on the kids menu if we had to do that.
