Epcot’s newest Mexican restaurant La Hacienda de San Angel to officially open on September 15

in Disney, Epcot, Food, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

La Hacienda de San Angel will hold its official grand opening on the evening of September 15.

The new Mexican restaurant at Epcot features a total of 12,000 square feet of space that includes a 250-seat table service area along the World Showcase Lagoon. The attached La Cantina de San Angel features a 150-seat quick-service restaurant serving traditional Mexican flavors.

The renovated location is likely to become a popular viewing spot for Epcot’s nightly Illuminations: Reflections of Earth fireworks show.

While September 15 is the official opening date for the restaurant, it’s likely that it will open sooner in a soft opening phase (but not guaranteed).

Check back here next week to InsideTheMagic.net for a report from the grand opening.

        A Google search tells me you’re correct. Close enough, I suppose. 😉

      They haven’t released the full menu yet, but last month an update on the progress of the restaurant included references to a variety of mini tacos (one flavor: chiles toreados y chorizitos), as well as skillets with cuts of meat, veggies, seafood, to make your own taco.

    Did they get rid of the restaurant inside the pyramid?
