We are so excited to learn about a new exhibit that is now open within the Morocco pavilion, located within Epcot’s World Showcase. It is located within the Gallery of Arts and History at the pavilion and is called, Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition. According to Disney Parks Blog, “Race Against the Sun showcases two incredible modern-day competitions – Marathon des Sables (Marathon of the Sands) and Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc (Rally of the Gazelles) – as well as the rich history of the ancient inhabitants of the Sahara, the Berbers.”
The exhibit features immersive components for guests to experience like a diorama of the Marathon of the Sands, complete with race gear and trophies. There is also an interactive photo opportunity, too!
To celebrate this new exhibit, guests can get a taste of participating in an intense desert competition. At Tangierine Café guests will discover “sellou,” a food highlighted in Race Against the Sun. Participants commonly eat this during their race. It is made with foods like almonds and sesame seeds to give runners the energy that they need.
Who else can’t wait to check out this new exhibit?
