Salt or No Salt? It’s National Margarita Day!

Today is National Margarita Day, so the Disney Parks Blog has shared some ways to celebrate the occasion at both Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort!


The first stop is the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot where there a couple options…as there should be.

Inside the pyramid, head to La Cava del Tequila! The lounge setting is perfect for a hand-crafted Wild Passion Fruit Margarita, plus some chips and guacamole.

Outside at the recently opened Choza de Margarita, try the Guava Pink Peppercorn Margarita with a side of Empanadas de Barbacoa. The Guava Margarita features Zignum Reposada Tequila, guava nectar, grapefruit liqueur, lime juice, bitters, and pink peppercorns. In addition to some signature margaritas, you can also grab a classic lime, strawberry or mango frozen margarita…or try the Fiesta Margarita, which includes all three.

Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Pongu Pongu in Pandora-The World of Avatar, serves the Mo’ara Margarita that is infused with strawberry and blood orange flavors, then topped with strawberry boba balls and served with a glowing Unadelta Seed.


At Disney Springs, step up to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar for Pancho’s Margarita, made with Don Julio Reposado Tequila, Grand Marnier and fresh sweet and sour. If the light outside is just right, you might want to try the Sunset Margarita at Dockside Margaritas. This cocktail is made with Don Julio Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, sweet and sour, and orange juice. Dockside also serves classic strawberry or lime frozen margaritas that go great with their Loaded Nachos.


If you’re touring the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, make a stop at BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas at Disney’s BoardWalk. Joe serves up fun cocktails like the Marvelous Watermelon Margarita made with Patron Silver Tequila, watermelon, fresh lime juice, and sweet and sour, or the Frozen Grand Margarita with Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila and Grand Marnier.


At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort you can choose between the Barefoot Pool Bar or Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.

At Sam’s, sip on the hand-crafted Rosita’s Margarita, made with Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Orange Curacao, fresh lime juice, Falernum, and organic agave nectar. The Pool Bar is serving the new Rose Gold Margarita, with Lunazul Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, sour mix, granadine and flavors of mango, guava and ginger, served in a glass with a gold sugar rim.


On the other coast, Disney California Adventure is the place to be for margaritas!

Rita’s Baja Blenders on the Pacific Wharf pours classic strawberry or lemon-lime frozen margaritas.

For something a little different, head up to the Alfresco Tasting Terrace above the Wine Country Trattoria for a Habanero Margarita, Blood Orange Margarita or Watermelon Margarita, then enjoy the view with a Classic Bruschetta or Charcuterie Board.

In Downtown Disney, you can’t go wrong with Tortilla Jo’s, where the menu includes 15 different specialty margaritas, including the Pineapple-Cilantro Margarita or the Fresno-Mezcal Margarita. Be sure to enjoy them with the fresh guacamole made table-side.


Whether you choose salt, no salt, on-the-rocks, frozen, or even a non-alcoholic cocktail, enjoy National Margarita Day in the Disney Parks!
