    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.

    Attractions

    Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros

    This attraction features Donald Duck, Jose Carioca, and Panchito from Disney's 1944 animated film The Three Caballeros. The storyline has Donald disappearing enroute to the Three Caballeros performance in Mexico City. His friends Jose and Panchito go off in search of their missing pal.

    FUN FACT: Three Audio-Animatronic figures of Donald Duck, Jose Carioca, and Panchito were added to the attraction's finale in December 2015. The figures were part of the Mickey Mouse Revue at the Magic Kingdom from 1971-1980 and then were moved to Tokyo Disneyland for 26 years. They came back to the U.S. for D23's Destination D event in 2011 and then made their way into the Epcot attraction.

     

    Mariachi Cobre performs 25-minute sets as a traditional Mariachi band, and has become a staple of entertainment in Epcot’s World Showcase.

    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 minimal light.
