Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural / 3D / spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join us as we catch another Epcot International Holiday Storyteller in Epcot’s China Pavilion.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
This time of year gets so crazy with trips, church events, and end-of-school-year activities. I’m sorry this memory took so long to come out, but I’m excited to get back on my regular 2-week cadence once again. So let’s get into it.
The Chinese Pavilion is home to some of our favorite live shows. The acrobats are a must-see every trip, and the Lion Dance is on par with those other shows. I wish I had a video of this show, but I did capture multiple pictures, so I would recommend checking out the show notes if you want to see what is happening. But if you’re in Epcot when they are performing, stop and watch, you will not be disappointed.
So we’re continuing our adventures in Epcot on a beautiful Sunday in December of 2021. The sun is warm, and the sky is mostly clear. It’s a perfect Florida winter day, even if it’s a little too warm in the sun.
If you remember from Memory 272, we ran inside the Mexico Pavilion for a quick boat ride with the Three Caballeros. As we exited the pavilion, we turned left and went next door to the China Pavilion, and staked out a spot along the rope for the special Chinese Holiday Storyteller. As we wait for the show to begin, we cross 1PM, and I was able to get us in the virtual queue for the brand new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. And right after this, we have lunch ordered at the Regal Eagle Smokehouse, so this show fits in perfectly. In a few moments, the music will begin, and the dancing dragon makes its way to its elevated platform for the 10-minute show, which is beautifully narrated making the actions of the dragon so much clearer. As the show ends, we’ll take a quick picture and then make our way around to the American Pavilion to pick up the lunch we ordered through mobile ordering (but I’ll talk about that experience in the next memory).
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family for another International Holiday special show as the Chinese Lion wishes us Happy New Year.
