When it comes to Walt Disney World, each theme park is entirely unique. But between Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT, nothing in the world could hold a candle to the latter Disney Park.

EPCOT is entirely unique due to its focus on educational entertainment and its fantastic array of attractions. From the World Showcase to World Celebration to World Nature to World Discovery, EPCOT has something for everyone.

That said, not every ride can be as exciting as Mission: SPACE, Soarin’ Around the World, or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Some rides are calmer and less popular but are still just as beloved. We’re talking, of course, about the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros.

This musical dark boat ride is similar to Magic Kingdom’s “it’s a small world” attraction, taking Guests on a tour down the Rio Grande as they search for Donald Duck.

This attraction is a staple of the Mexico Pavillion and is widely beloved by Guests who appreciate its adorable antics.
