China in World Showcase, Epcot park in Walt Disney World

Walk through the large Paifang gate. These type of gates were used in China to mark entry into a new division, and this one is a replica of one in Beijing's summer palace. The courtyard is dominated by a recreation of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing; it was used by the emperors to pray for a good harvest. The 12 columns supporting the roof represent the 12 months of the Chinese year, and the four columns in the center represent the four seasons.

The courtyard is bordered by shops selling Chinese merchandise, and two Chinese restaurants. The pavilion is decorated with ponds, crossed by bridges. The Chinese garden is one of the most peaceful spots in Epcot.

Reflections of China is a Circle-Vision 360, 13-minute travel movie of China's most well-known sights, from Shanghai and Inner Mongolia, to the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China.

Chinese acrobats perform frequently in the pavilion.

Nine Dragons is a full-service gourmet Chinese restaurant featuring traditional Chinese fare, such as two-course Peking duck.
