Restaurant Marrakesh recently filed for a Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP loan for $ 1-2 million in closing lights and COVID-19 effects on location. The loan lists a total of 260 jobs maintained through the funds raised. While Restaurant Marrakesh remains closed at this time, the Morocco Pavilion has reopened with a Spice Road Table and a full range of shops. Tangierine Cafe was temporarily closed in early August.
Throughout the closure, the Morocco Pavilion put together a job listing for the merchandise hosts as well as the hosts at their fast service location. Morocco Pavilion in particular is one of the pavilions to be chosen that operates independently from Disney.
