Disney World is celebrating Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month this September and October.
You can find ways to celebrate during the “Together We are Magia” celebration in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. Here are some of the best ways to join in the celebration.
First, let’s see how you can celebrate Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month inside the parks!
Inside the Parks
At the Mexico pavilion, there are plenty of ways to celebrate, including the Mexico Folk Art Gallery and eating at the San Angel Inn restaurant. This restaurant will have a menu from the San Pascual Award-winning Chef Federico A. Lopez on October 1st through December 31st, 2021. Chef Lopez will feature regional Mexican dishes on this menu, including the Pescado a la Veracruzana and Viva Mexico Margarita. Close by, Choza de Margarita even has Elote and and Tacos de Cochinita.
You can also head to the America Gardens Theater across from the American Adventure pavilion to see the Mariachi Cobre band play songs from Coco. At this theater, the band Latin Ambition will be playing from October 1st through the 4th, 2021.
The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival has some great cultural dishes to try, like the Chimichurri-up Offense dish at Flavors from Fire or the Crispy Pig Ear Salad from the Swanky Saucy Swine booth.
Or you can get Street Corn Tacos, Chicken Street Tacos, and Pulled Pork Tacos at the quick-service Smiling Crocodile. Don’t forget dessert too! Nomad Lounge and Dino Diner are both serving delicious churros with cream and fruit dips.
Disney World Hotels
You don’t even have to go to the parks to celebrate, though. Resorts around Disney World will be playing movies inspired by Latin and Hispanic cultures during their Movies Under the Stars events. You can watch Coco, Elena and the Secret of Avalor, and more.
At Disney’s Coronado Springs, you can find Pork Tacos, Tres Leches, and Churros at the Three Bridges – Villa de Lago. At Disney’s Old Key West Resort, there’s Pork Ropa Vieja as a great dish. And, you can celebrate “Taco Tuesday” with Shrimp Tacos at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Fish Tacos at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Some of the best food for this celebration can be found at Disney Springs, where three Disney Cast Members are showing off their Hispanic and Latinx cultures with new dishes. There’s “Alex Cabrera’s Tres Leches at Amorette’s Patisserie, Jose Rodriguez’s Tripleta Burger at D-Luxe Burger, and Oscar Prieto’s Tostones at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.”
Besides those dishes, you can also stop by the visiting food truck Urban Cilantro Eatery. This spot will have burritos, rice bowls, urban tacos, salads, and quesadillas. And there are always the permanent Disney Springs restaurants like Jaleo by José Andrés and Frontera Cocina by Rick Bayless!
Once you’ve filled up on some delicious snacks, you can check out some artist spotlights at the Art of Disney or the crystal gifts from Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers. You can visit Pelé Soccer and Sosa Cigars as well, or see some Spanish artists’ handcrafted jewelry at UNOde50.
And don’t forget to see the live performances by La Calle — a Latin Pop band. Nicholas Marks, who is called the “Jimi Hendrix of Flamenco music,” will be playin in Disney Springs as well.
