Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros

We had a chance to visit Epcot today! Whoo Hooo

We went on the Gran Fiesta Tour starring the three caballeros. It is a very slow boat ride. It is a little dark but very cute! My kids loved it!

After boarding the boats, guests float around the Mayan pyramid in the back of the pavilion’s main room. Soon, guests enter a tunnel on the side of the pyramid, where Panchito Pistoles and José Carioca of The Three Caballeros introduce themselves, only to find out that Donald Duck, the third member of the group, has run off, prompting Panchito and José to set off on a frantic search for their missing friend. The next few scenes show Donald touring Mexico and José and Panchito on a magic sarape (a sort of Mexican flying poncho) looking for him.

The next scene has characters similar to ‘It’s a Small World’ with dancing animatronics but at a much slower pace.

The attraction combines traditional animation superimposed over live-action film clips shot in such stunning locales as Acapulco, Chichen Itza, Manzanillo and Mexico City. These vibrant sights, accompanied by lively music, showcase the people, culture, history and arts of Mexico.
