Mexico

When you get out of the hot Florida sun and go inside the pyramid, you're entering a whole new world -- often to a lively tune from their talented mariachi band. Indoors is an outdoor Mexican plaza, living in eternal twilight.

Attractions

To your left as you face the rear of the pyramid is one of World Showcase's few rides. In Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, Mexico's Panchito (a rooster) and the Brazilian José Carioca (a parrot) are in search of their old friend, America's irascible Donald Duck, who is lost somewhere in Mexico. Our slow moving boat ride takes us on a tour of Mexican highlights to find him in what is essentially a remaking of the pavilion's El Rio Del Tiempo: The River of Time attraction. It's a Mexican "its a small world" meeting Disney's 1944 feature The Three Caballeros with a few cute gags.



And don't miss the Mexican cultural exhibit on your way out.

Dining

At the rear of the pyramid is Mexico's one table service restaurant, the San Angel Inn, operated by the Mexico City restaurant of the same name. Here more authentic Mexican specialties may be enjoyed. (Reservations recommended). A new tequila bar is scheduled to open adjacent to the restaurant in Summer 2008.

The Cantina de San Angel, with tables right on the lagoon, is a fast food stand serving Mexican specialties. The tired and thirsty will also find margaritas and beer to wash it all down. The Cantina gets a new menu, and an expanded seating area is slated to open here, in Summer 2008.

Shopping

Shop for Mexican crafts and fashions in the shops off of the Plaza De Los Amigos, where you can pick up that piņata or sombrero you've always wanted.

La Familia Fashions offers accessories including hand crafted silver jewelry.

El Rancho Del Norte, outside the pyramid on the lagoon side, has more Mexican gifts and souvenirs.

Where To?

From Mexico you can turn left (as you face World Showcase Lagoon) to visit Norway or right to visit Showcase Plaza.
