The Epcot Outpost

The Outpost section of Epcot.

The Epcot Outpost is located between Germany and China in the World Showcase. Technically, it is not a country but if it were, it would be Africa. This small area has a refreshment stand, a shop and even live entertainment for guests to enjoy.

Outpost Entertainment

OrisRisi- is a pair of African storytellers. This man and woman team tells folktales that they heard as children in Nigeria. The storytelling includes the playing of the drums which most people find hypnotic. Children especially love the drums.

This duo is very entertaining, as they should be. He is a music researcher and a folklorist and she grew up hearing the stories that they share with park guests. The two of them together are very animated and very good storytellers. Be sure to check a times guide for specific performance times.
