The Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in Epcot is located inside the pyramid in the Mexico Pavillion in Epcot. The ride features the characters from Disney’s 1944 The Three Caballeros. You board a boat that navigates between the Mayan pyramid and the San Angel Inn restaurant and on into the Three Caballeros story. The 3 of them were scheduled to perform at a fiesta, but of course Donald has gone missing. Throughout the ride, Panchito and Jose try to locate Donald so that they can perform together in Mexico city at end of the ride.

Our Touring Strategy: If we see the ride is long, we will spend time browsing the shops. We have never had to wait longer than 2-3 minutes for this ride, no matter what time of the day we have visited!
