(in World Showcase, that is!)
Last month, I shared 3 Things that I Love About Future World at Epcot, and said that I’d likely focus on each country in World Showcase individually. I absolutely ADORE World Showcase, and spending quality time in each of the countries is something that I very much enjoy. So, over the next several months, I’ll be focusing my lists on World Showcase Pavilions (on the first Thursday of each month). I hope you’ll follow along and share some of your favorites. Maybe we’ll find some “hidden Disney gems” along the way!
#1 – Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
I’ve always enjoyed this ride. In fact, I was one of those who loved the original – El Rio Del Tiemps – and was resistant of the change. However, I’ve learned to embrace change at Disney (especially now that we seem to go more often). I think I enjoy this ride because parts of it remind me of another favorite – It’s a Small World. And because it’s one of very few actual rides in World Showcase. It’s often the first stop for my family.
#2 – Sombreros
I used to be one of “those moms” . . . you know the ones – we refuse to allow our kids to try on hats because they might come home with lice. (As an aside, I’ll interject here that lice really is one of my biggest fears! Ewww!!!) However, over the course of the years and through some tragic life experiences, I’ve learned to relax a bit. And now I’ll actually let my kids try on hats for photo opps at Disney. (I’m still learning, though – we don’t try on hats just anywhere!)
One of my kids’ favorite places to try on hats is in Mexico. There’s just something really tempting about those HUGE Sombreros. I can’t quite imagine actually buying one and dragging it home with us, though. (Here’s a picture of them from our trip in January 2012 – man, how they have all changed!)
#3 – Churros
A few years ago, a friend of Gracie’s insisted that she try the Churros. So, Gracie was on a mission to accept the challenge. We picked up some Churros in Mexico to see if she thought they were worth all the hype. The truth is, she did not. But the rest of us thought they were insanely good. Especially with the caramel sauce to dip them in! (In the past 3 years, she’s grown to taller than me, gotten her hair cut off, gotten braces and contacts! Stop the roller-coaster, people!)
What do YOU love about the Mexico Pavilion?
Do we share any of the same favorites?
