On today’s Let’s Ride! post we are going to visit the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros! It is located in the Mexico Pavilion in the World Showcase in Epcot inside of the pyramid.
Opened on April 6, 2007 it is a dark boat ride under 10 minutes long that takes guests on a trip through famous places in Mexico including Chichen Itza and Acapulco. The ride is based on the 1944 Disney animated movie The Three Caballeros and is a mix of animation, live action video on screens, and animatronic figures.
The wait for this ride is usually short, under 20 minutes, unless an infamous Florida thunderstorm comes along, then wait times can approach an hour. Guests float along on the Rio Grande following José Carioca and Panchito Pistoles who are looking for Donald Duck who has gone missing before their big show!
This ride is gentle and fun for all ages and each boat can fit approximately 14-16 people. So next time you are stopping in the Mexico Pavilion for a churro or margarita don’t forget to go inside the pyramid for a fun-filled boat ride with the Three Caballeros! Adios!
