You enter the China Pavilion through a distinct triple arched ceremonial gate patterned after the Temple of Heaven in Beijing.
This pavilion appears to be divided in two. The left side is more commercial while the right is more picturesque.
The China pavilion deserves a close look. It is quite pretty and the intricacy of the carvings is amazing. If you're looking for a spot where you can enjoy a few minutes of peace, this is it. There are footbridges, bamboo groves, a small waterfall, and ponds which provide the perfect getaway from the crowds.
Throughout the day you'll often find Mulan available for meet and greets.
Also be sure to check out the showcase of Shanghai Disney.
Reflections of China
Reflections of China is a 360º Circle-Vision film shown in the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest. This movie features footage of China including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City of Beijing, the Gobi Desert, Inner Mongolia, the Yangtze River and the tropical rain forests of Hainan Island. Reflections of China was updated in 2017 with a a brand new digital camera system to create a seamless new film that is displayed on nine separate screens. Wondrous China, a completely seamless Circle-Vision 360° film, debuted in the China pavilion in 2020.
There is no seating in this theatre, only rails for guests to lean against so that they can fully experience the Circle-Vision effect. Not overly thrilling, but rarely busy so if you're looking for a place to either cool off, dry off or escape crowds, this is an option to keep in mind.
House of Good Fortune is one of the largest shopping destinations in the World Showcase. It has a wide variety of merchandise from silk clothing, lacquer and mother-of-pearl inlay furniture, Yixing teapots and jade carvings, to stuffed pandas, incense, candles, and paper fans. Beijing Cloisonne Ware is one of the specialty items found here, as well as, Chinese lanterns, Oriental carpets, and Jingdezhen Chinaware. In the jewelry section of the store you will find gorgeous coral, jade, and crystal pieces. After walking through the entire shop you exit into an open air market that offers books on meditation, calligraphy and the Chinese language. You will also find children toys and a Kidcot fun stop.
Nine Dragons restaurant is one of the few restaurants in the World Showcase where you'll often find availability. (Kind of a hint that it's not a top choice, but it's not totally awful either.) The Lotus Blossom Café is
a quick service restaurant.
FUN FACTS: To say "hello" in Chinese, say "Ni hao" (nee HOW).
