My opinion of the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot..
- This pavilion offers a great family-friendly boat ride called the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros. (NO height requirement)
- You have some food options too, including the San Angel Inn Restaurante that sits right next to the boat ride attraction.
- The pavilion has a Mexico City open air marketplace vibe which is very neat and enjoyable to walk through. (see photo below)
- Definitely swing into this pyramid shaped building as you’re wondering through the World Showcase Pavilions.

Getting to the Mexico Pavilion
This pavilion is closest to the World Showcase section of the park.
With this being the case, you can try and enter Epcot through the International Gateway entrance where you’ll be able to quickly walk over to the World Showcase.
This entrance is very close to the France Pavilion where you’ll find one of my favorite quick service restaurants, Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie.
Using this entrance is best if you’re using the Disney Skyliner at night or during the day, or are taking the Friendship Boat over to Epcot.
You can also enter Epcot through the main entrance.
This is where transportation to Epcot by the Disney Monorail, guest parking, and bus transportation will drop you off.
Once you pass the Spaceship Earth ride, Connections Eatery, and Test Track ride, the Mexico Pavilion will be on your left.
The actual pavilion operates on the same hours as Epcot park. However some of the restaurants inside of the pavilion may not open until a little later.

Disney dining tips from Jenna Loves Magic
Remember: for any sit-down dinner or character meal, I recommend to definitely book 60 days out, or whenever your Disney dining dates open.
If you’re staying on site, you can book dining reservations earlier as a perk.
Don’t have reservations? Check regularly during your trip, on the app, or walk up to the restaurant early in the day and request a day-of reservation. Disney reservations are often dropped day-of since sometimes people “hoard them”.
I once was a walk-up and was told there would be a 90 minute wait for a table at Steakhouse 71.
Not a problem, since it’s an interesting hotel to walk around and they have an arcade.
Anyways, within 5 minutes my reservation was ready because someone canceled. So you never know.

Enjoy exploring the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot.
Hope that answers all your questions about the Mexico Pavilion.
