Choza Tequila Coming to Walt Disney World at Epcot

Choza Tequila is planned to open outside the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase in early 2017.  This will be an outdoor tequileria serving margaritas and other authentic Mexican dishes.  Frozen margaritas, traditional margaritas, empanadas, fresh guacamole, tacos and more will be served at the location.  The location is opening in addition to the existing location, La Cave del Tequila, which maintains long lines consistently.

An actual open date hasn’t been announced, just that it is expected to open in early 2017. We will keep you posted as we have an official opening date and menu to share.  We are really excited for this location, and can’t wait to see frozen margaritas make their way back to the pavilion.

Check out 7 Things You Will Love About Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion in Walt Disney World by Cassie Below

7. Beautiful Music

A live Mariachi band plays on the Promenade or in the Table Service restaurant inside in the pyramid. Enjoy the classic Mexican songs that make you feel like celebrating. Violins, guitars and trumpets will get your toes tapping!

6. Beautiful artwork

Step inside and look at the cases spotlighting the Spirits in Wood or ‘Animales Fantasticos” carvings. Going further into the pavilion, walking downstairs into the marketplace you may see one of the talented artists carving or painting a Spirit in Wood. You will find the artist station next to the beautiful blue fountain.

5. Best themed shopping

Some of the best shopping is Plaza de Los Amigos, during a perpetual sunset inside the Mexican pavilion. You will find a colorful marketplace with little shops, carts, stands, as you would expect when traveling to a Mexican plaza. Shop for authentic souvenirs made in Mexico, apparel, jewelry, housewares, spices, snacks, candy, tequila and Kahlua items. Decorative Margarita glasses, pottery, outerwear, sombreros, piñatas, and Day of the Dead items are very popular in this shopping plaza.

4. Multiple dining options

La Hacienda de San Angel is the newest restaurant in Mexico, which is a table service restaurant offering great views of the World Showcase Lagoon and IllumiNations. The food is delicious and it is open for lunch and dinner. Inside the pavilion is San Angel Inn Restaurant, which overlooks the boat ride and the marketplace plaza. La Cantina de San Angel in the counter service restaurant serving meals and snacks as well as cold beverages. La Cava del Tequila is a cozy full bar with an extensive offering of Mexican tequilas. You can learn a bit about the history of Tequila inside La Cava and sign up for Tequila tastings. What is not to love about the warm comfort food and cold beverages of Mexico?

3. Great views of IllumiNations

You can choose a table in the covered seating area of La Cantina de San Angel to have a bite to eat, maybe a nice beverage and certainly a great view of IllumiNations each night. You will have to get there early though because it is an extremely popular spot.

2. It is one of the gateway countries into the World Showcase

This means it is the welcoming country if you enter the left hand side with Future World at your back. You cross the arched bridge and hear the music drawing you into Mexico. Stop by the beverage counter and begin your drink tour of Epcot. Get a photo with Donald dressed in a sombrero and serape!

1. An entertaining boat ride

This is a quiet cruise known as El Rio Del Tiempo. This ride tells the story of The Three Caballeros, Donald Duck, Jose Carioca and Panchito who are scheduled to perform this evening in Mexico City. Donald, being Donald, gets off track, enjoying some of the sights of Mexico. His friends go out to find him.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
