Description And Comments

A variety of period architecture attempts to capture Britain's city, town, and rural atmospheres. One street alone has a thatched-roof cottage, a four-story timber-and-plaster building, a pre-Georgian plaster building, a formal Palladian exterior of dressed stone, and a city square with a Hyde Park bandstand (whew!).

The pavilion is composed mostly of shops. The Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room is the only World Showcase full-service restaurant with dining on the water side of the promenade. For fast food try Yorkshire County Fish Shop.

Touring Tips

There are no attractions, hence minimal congestion; so tour anytime. Mary Poppins and/or Pooh can occasionally be found in the character greeting area; check the Times Guide for a schedule. Advance reservations aren't required to enjoy the pub section of the Rose & Crown, making it a nice place to stop for a midafternoon beer.

FROM WAREHOUSE TO PUBLIC HOUSE

For those of you still mourning the closing of Pleasure Island's clubs, here's some welcome news: Carol Stein, who used to pound the keys at PI's Comedy Warehouse, has taken over for the recently retired Pam Brody as pianist at the Rose & Crown Pub. So if you're longing to hear that classic ditty "Super Conscientious Friendly Disney World Employees" again, drop in for a pint and give Carol your request.
