Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at Epcot

Meet The Three Caballeros

Don’t miss a rare opportunity to say “¡Saludos Amigos!” to three of the most famous Latin American lovebirds in history, The Three Caballeros!

Panchito, Jose Carioca and, of course, el Pato Donald are getting the band back together and they’re ready to pose for a picture or two—stop by and meet these classic Characters while you have the chance!

Move Your Feet to the Music
Once you’ve had your fill of The Three Caballeros, get ready to groove to music from south of the border, and maybe even move your feet a little!

First, soak up the spirit of the occasion with an energetic set by delightful marionettes. Then, float through the romanticized beauty of Mexico’s history with some folkloric dancing. Finally, work up an appetite with a little dancing of your own, set to the tunes of the world-renowned band, Mariachi Cobre!

Feast on Festive Mexican Eats
Ready for an authentic Mexican food experience? San Angel Inn Restaurante and La Hacienda de San Angel will both be a huge part of the occasion and they’re preparing a selection of fiesta-themed offerings to celebrate!
