In honor of Cinco de Mayo and Día de los Niños, Epcot is hosting “¡Fiesta!”—a week-long celebration honoring the pride of Mexico, the personality of its people, and the color and food of its culture.


The three amigos tsums tsims!

From meeting classic characters to eating authentic Mexican foods and collecting magic merchandise including special Mickey Ears, this is sure to be one fiesta you won’t soon forget!


At La Cava, where all the drinks are delicious!!

Be sure to stop in and sample some the wonderful tequilas available at  La Cava del Tequila, especially the Flight of Tequilas!



We’ve always liked the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, nowadays even more after sampling the La Cava del Tequila Flight featuring the delicious Crème de Tequila!  Ole!

These sombreos are actually a big seller!

Tequila: The True Spirit of Mexico

“The soul of Tequila is the essence of Mexico; to drink it is to absorb stories and be initiated into a world of legends.”

And, who could forget the guest climbing the temple steps at last fall’s Food & Wine Festival after a few too many tequilas???

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, 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.
