Dawn Bach, thank you for such a wonderful note! Have a wonderful trip; I know you and your daughter will have a ball!
And I did mean the 16th, Tom Higbee. LOL!
Quick note: I will be at the AllEars’ New York events this weekend and I’m hoping I’ll meet some of you! It’s my birthday weekend and what a great way to celebrate it: special times with friends. 🙂
This was Challenge #181:
You can see this is the entrance arch to the Gran Fiesta Tour ride, starring Donald Duck, Panchito Pistoles, and JosÃ© Carioca of The Three Caballeros. It’s my favorite ride in Epcot in my favorite World Showcase pavilion, Mexico!
Here’s a couple fun details to look for in the ride, if you don’t about them already. In the scene where Donald is taking pictures while wearing a few sombreros, the Aracuan Bird briefly pops up inside the hats! The Aracuan Bird is his nemesis from “The Three Caballeros” and “Disney’s House of Mouse” when Panchito and Jose would appear on the show. (Coincidentally, I first fell in love with Panchito and Jose on the House of Mouse!) Also look around the rocks in the scene where Donald is diving with the baby octopus: you’ll see his sailor’s jacket and drink on the rocks where he left them to go swimming!
A number of Worlders said this same picture is in the queue in Mickey’s Philharmagic. I can see where they would be there, and I sort of remember it myself. I’ll double check it and add everyone’s name to the monthly winners list if it’s true, so you will be in the monthly drawing too. I’ll let you know next week.

Let’s stay in the parks for another week:
Do you know? Do you have a guess? Please send in your answer, before the end of the day on Thursday, June 23rd, by clicking on the blue box below. Please do not post answers using the Feedback Form link at the bottom of this post. Remember to be specific with your answer – just naming a park will not get you into the drawing.
See you next week, Worlders!
Everyone who sends in a correct answer to a Where in the World Challenge this month will be entered in a drawing at the end of the month for some special AllEars® goodies and a cool Disney book!
