    I used to live near this hotel. There are details like the front doors, light fixtures, and even the entrance arch that are copied right from this building and used on the Epcot version. As you say, especially from this angle, it's clearly the inspiration for epcot just like our info guide from imagineering states :)

    I thoroughly enjoy the Martin Short movie. The French group Bodh'aktan was great, but I miss Off Kilter. I liked Alberta Bound as well.

    I'd love to see them open something in the upper level, but I think with Joffery's and Starbucks, Timmy' is likely out of the question. A Beavertail's shop would be great.

    A couple years ago you were dining at Le Cellier, I was too shy to come say hello but I asked your server to bring you a chocolate "moose"!

    And we have asked about the possibility of Tim Hortons but there told could never happen as all coffee at table service locations must be joffreys and tea must be twining due to contracts.

    I remember the Moose! Thanks! :cool:

    If I recall correctly, you'd served me on a previous visit and are also from Kanata [or at least Ottawa]? I might be mixing some memories LOL, I am getting older... ;)

    I've never visited WDW without at least one dinner at Le Cellier [I think I'm around 80+ trips now]! I'm almost always treated like visiting Royalty when they spot my various Canadian flags. Always an excellent meal and the friendliest service ANYWHERE! :inlove:

    Spent my Honeymoon there. Looks like the same time of year as well. Had one of those turret rooms (the grey one that looks like a rocket with one window on the right side of the picture. A long, long time ago (45 years ago last January)

    When the cost of a meal at Le Cellier (I know I butchered the spelling) began to average $40-50, we stopped going to Canadian section. The only thing Canada has been good for are sitting on the steps during Illuminations.

    I'm thinking the design is a bit of both.

    The steakhouse was massively popular. Then they went to 2 credits and that was their demise

    - There is a Poutine stand in Disney Springs, with reasonable but obscenely overpriced Poutine. It should've been in EPCOT.

    - Martin Short is cheap celeb diarrhea. ('When you don't know what to do, throw in a celeb') But otherwise the movie is good. Great song, even the new version.

    - This is America. People won't walk upstairs, and they only spend on what is directly in front of them. This is why nowadays the upstairs of Canada is closed, and the entire WS walkway build up with stands, restaurants and bars. EPCOT, how the mighty has fallen... :'(

    Demise? Hardly. You still can't get a walk-up any time of year as far as I can tell.

    Going to Signature only seriously impacted DDP guests, the restaurant actually became a much better option for people who pay OOP.

    That's a bit harsh. At the time they were commissioned to do those attractions those stars were A list. Not anymore, but, they were at the top of their games at that point. Marty has been in many Disney related things, including movies. He is also Canadian. Imagine that a Canadian doing a Canadian show. Whoda thunk it!;):)

    How about the Robin Williams academy awards rendition of Blame Canada, thrown in to the Canada movie. ;)

    It's a coffee order :). Triple Triple is three sugars and three creams. Double Double is two of each. Apparently Quad Quad is also now a thing...
