Dining at Epcot Mexico

Dining at Epcot Mexico

The Mayan Temple

We made reservations for dinner at Epcot-Mexico. We got there at 6pm after spending a rainy afternoon at the Animal Kingdom. You’ll find San Angel Inn by heading into the Aztec Temple, which serves as the centerpiece for Mexico. The atmosphere inside the Mexico pavilion is wonderful.

We decided we needed to taste some tequilas (“the essence of Mexico”) before dinner. We stopped in at La Cava del Tequila – a tequila bar with a vast collection of over 100 tequilas, specialty margaritas and light Mexican appetizers.

The Crème de Tequila went down smoothly and was our favorite. It had a creamy base with a hint of cinnamon and sugar. The place is a little hole in the wall that’s easy to miss. It is on the right hand side of the Mercado, past the splashing fountain.

Our dinner was at San Angel Inn, a restaurant modeled on a 17th-century hacienda, located at the base of Mayan ruins. You dine in perpetual twilight at this Mexican restaurant, with a quiet river flowing to the west below the restaurant — very similar to Blue Bayou restaurant in Disneyland.

Wonderful dining atmosphere.

Our friend, Ann, requested a waterside table for us and we had a wonderful table with great views of the Mayan temple. We loved watching the little boats on the ‘Three Caballeros’ ride float on by as we enjoyed our Mexican food. The active volcano in the distance glowed orange in the twilight. It was a wonderful night.

We’ve written a book about our year working at Disney World in the Disney College Program: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale. It’s filled with advice about the DCP program and how to get the most out of your internship.

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and wrote about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney. We give advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship at Disney, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
