Serveur Amusant show in Epcot's France

I have heard many times from friends and clients that they are not sure that Epcot will appeal to their kids.  That it has too much emphasis on education.  And that they skip most of the world showcase because only two of the countries have rides.  But I want to make it one of my missions to convince you that Epcot and in particular the world showcase is not to be missed.  I've told you about things to do in one of our favorite countries - Japan (trying on Kimonos and seeing Miyuki), about the beauty of Canada, and today I want to tell you about one of the shows in France - Serveur Amusant.

The show happens in front of Les Chefs de France restaurant - be sure to get a times guide when you first enter the park so that you can see all the times it's performed during the day - and find one that will work for your touring plan.

In this show, two waiters (who never speak) do a balancing act with bottles of champagne and chairs.  It's pretty amazing to see.

We start with a table and the handing off of the bottles:


Then the bottles are placed, and he begins to stack the chairs:


And perhaps an acrobatic feat is thrown in as well:


Then, the stack of chairs gets higher and higher:


And then, the Pièce de résistance:


Amazing and completely entertaining for the entire family.

So...how about you?  Have you seen Serveur Amusant?  Do you have a favorite world showcase show?

  1. Saw them for the first time last summer while we were waiting to check-in for our Les Chefs reservation. Very entertaining!

    And you'll be happy to know that I've shown H the booth menus for this year's F&W. She's really looking forward to going next year and trying some of the foods... I could hardly believe it!

  4. Epcot has been and will continue to be my favorite park! I'm so glad you introduced me to Miyuki last year. I still tell friends about her and can't wait to show my girls her amazing skills in October. 61 days!!!
