Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot - March 7, 2014

This is my 100th blog post!

The Mexico Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot has always had a dark boat ride since it opened in 1982.  It was first called El Río del Tiempo (The River of Time) and it featured a boat ride though various scenes in Mexico.  It had a lot of animatronic characters similar to those in the It's A Small World ride.  This version of the ride lasted from 1982 to 2007.

Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
In 2007, Disney changed the ride to the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. The ride is now themed with The Three Caballeros: Donald Duck, Jose Carioca, and Panchito Pistoles.  There are now projections of short scenes showing each of the characters.  Half of the animatronics from the original ride have been removed.  Below is video that I took from the ride from March 7, 2014.
