A Ride on The Gran Fiesta Tour (Starring the Three Caballeros)

Today we are going to look at Epcot’s Gran Fiesta Tour attraction. Located inside the indoor portion of the Mexico pavilion, Gran Fiesta Tour definitely a bit underrated in our opinion. The attraction is a slow moving boat ride with a combination of physical sets, projection screens and “Small World” like dolls / animatronics. It’s┬ánot going to blow anybody away, but its still a solid … Continue reading A Ride on The Gran Fiesta Tour (Starring the Three Caballeros)
