Wait Until You See This Restaurant Change at EPCOT’s Mexico Pavilion

We think you might agree with us when we say one of the best parts of EPCOT is World Showcase.

Mexico Pavilion

Who doesn’t love being able to walk around the world and visit countries without ever needing to leave EPCOT? You can enjoy food from around the world, buy merchandise from each pavilion’s country, and even learn more about specific cultures. One of the most popular pavilions is the Mexico Pavilion, and we have to tell you about a big change that’s happened there.

If you’ve ever dined at San Angel Inn Restaurante in the Mexico Pavilion, you’ve probably felt a little crowded in the dining room. The restaurant previously had a set-up with tables and chairs that were so close together that it could often be uncomfortable. This was not a good place for a quiet dinner or somewhere introverts felt comfortable.

Seating was very cramped

Well, we’ve got some good news. The seating situation at San Angel Inn Restaurante has completely changed. It’s now set up to where each table is a sort of half booth with chairs on one side and the tables have dividers between them so you end up with a little more privacy while you eat. Here’s what the new seating looks like:

As you can see, even the design of the chairs has also changed a little. It’s the divider walls that make all the difference, though — and they have a Mexican-inspired pattern on them.

Less crowded

So if you’ve ever felt uncomfortable dining at San Angel Inn Restaurante, this could make you feel a little more at ease. This also goes for those who haven’t dined here because the restaurant felt too crowded — it certainly feels a little less cramped than it used to be.

Seating against the wall

While you’re inside the Mexico Pavilion, be sure to hop on a boat for a ride with Gran Fiesta Tour with the Three Caballeros. You’ll sail by the San Angel Inn Restaurante dining room and into the wonders of Mexico, all while enjoying the hijinks of Donald Duck and his Caballeros friends. (Did you know that “caballero” means “gentlemen” in English?).

The Mexico Pavilion is also a great place to shop for handmade goods created in Mexico, perfect for souvenirs to take home or even as gifts. When you’re tired of shopping, you can stop into La Cava del Tequila for a margarita (but we’ll warn you: there’s almost always a line there).

If you are interested in eating your way around World Showcase, we’ve got some great suggestions here. Of course, you can always drink your way around World Showcase, too.

  1. Great! This is good to know. When I was little, this was my dream restaurant but my family couldn’t afford to eat there. I ate there once as a solo adult but that was probably tne years ago. Time to enjoy it again perhaps on my September trip.
