Mexico Pavilion

A pre-Colombian pyramid surrounded by lush landscaping fashioned after a Yucatan jungle is your first introduction to the Mexican pavilion. As you enter the Plaza de Los Amigos, you first notice the darkened interior. It's always twilight in Mexico, the perfect backdrop for the smoking volcano and the grand Mayan pyramid in the background. There are colorful carts and shops offering Mexican

jewelry, Kahlua, pottery, clothing and leather goods. There's often a strolling mariachi band making this visit an authentic taste of Mexico.

Regional Mexican dishes featuring beef, chicken and seafood served in traditional Mexican sauces and spices are served for both lunch and dinner at the San Angel Inn Restaurant. In accordance with the twilight scene of the plaza, the restaurant that overlooks the plaza and the boat ride is very dark and romantic with lanterns on the tables providing the light.

TIPS: Donald Duck, clad in the traditional Mexican sombrero and serape, can often be seen here signing autographs. Donald is not often seen in the parks, and is usually easily accessible when signing autographs in Mexico. 

To say “hello” in Spanish, say “hola” (OH-lah). Kids love greeting the Cast Members in their native language.
