La Cava de Tequila

Towards the back you can enjoy authentic Mexican food at the pavilion’s anchor restaurant San Angel Inn, nearby you can experience one of the most overlooked and underrated attractions in all of Epcot, Gran Fiesta Tour with the Three Caballeros. (This boat ride, which rarely has longer than a five-minute wait, is more than just a tribute to the 1944 live action/animated film. As you ride through the River of Time, you view scene after scene of Panchito and Jose Carioca, as they search for the final member of their trio: Donald Duck! You join the boys for a fun journey through some of the most amazing cities and sights in Mexico.) Believe it or not, when you have had your fill of eating, riding, and shopping there is STILL more to experience.
