The Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros is located inside the Mexico Pavilion and offers you a nice, relaxing boat ride. It's sort of like a scaled down version of It's A Small World without a theme song that will be stuck in your head for days. It also often doesn't have any lines and is a great way to rest your feet for a bit and cool off at the same time.

Since this is Disney they has to wrap a story around it which goes like this: Donald disappeared and Jose and Panchito need to find him. Sort of a Mexican Finding Nemo.

Oh, right, who are Jose and Panchito? They're The Three Caballeros of course! Who or what are The Three Caballeros? Well, that was a movie that was released way back in 1944 (premiered in Mexico City no less, see the tie in here?). It's okay if you don't know the movie or the characters beyond Donald, the theming works just fine, though it also worked just fine when it originally opened without them.

This is a good ride though. No thrills, no drops, but it's fun and relaxing and you can often walk right on it. When the kids are annoying you during or after a meal at San Angel Inn Restaurante, send them on the ride which is located right next to the restaurant and then order up the dessert and / or tequila!
