Help The Three Caballeros find Donald Duck in time for their grand musical concert in Mexico City! It seems the sights of the city have distracted Donald and now Panchito the Mexican rooster and Jose Carioca the Brazilian parrot have to locate him.
You’ll start the search for Donald by floating around the Mayan pyramid and then travel through a tunnel to meet Panchito and Jose. While riding your boat through Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, you’ll see traditional animation of Donald, Panchito and Jose superimposed over live-action clips shot in locales such as Acapulco, Chichen Itza, Manzanillo and Mexico City. Your favorite duck will be seen enjoying the sites of Mexico and doing his own tour by cliff diving, scuba diving, boating, parasailing and more! In between these shots, you’ll float by colorful dolls and vibrant scenes (similar to it’s a small world).
Jose and Panchito will finally retrieve their third band member and head into Mexico City to start the fiesta complete with fireworks and music! Before arriving at the unloading area, notice the mural map inspired by the one that appears in the Disney film “The Three Caballeros.”
There’s a consistently short line, so save Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros for when there’s a break in your schedule or in between scheduled shows in World Showcase. With a feel similar to 'it's a small world', it's colorful, relaxing and quite entertaining. Located in the back of the Mexico Pavilion, Gran Fiesta Tour is easily overlooked, but with a reliably short line, so why not? Adults enjoy reminiscing the film, and kids have fun watching the search for Donald Duck.
The Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros is an 8-minute gentle boat ride in the Mexico Pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot. This attraction is based on the 1944 Disney film, The Three Caballeros, and is fun for guests of all ages. The boats have bench seating with no lap restraints. Guests must transfer from their motorized scooter or ECV to an available wheelchair to experience the attraction. Audio Description devices that provide supplemental audio for guests are available at Guest Relations. Handheld Captioning devices, which display text segments at this attraction, are also available at Guest Relations.

The ride offers fascinating vignettes of pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial and modern Mexican life. Eat on the patio of the delightful San Angel Inn Restaurant while enjoying watching other guests on this ride. The architecture for the pyramid-shaped Mexico Pavilion that houses the Gran Fiesta Tour attraction is inspired by the third-century A.D. Meso-American structures. Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros replaced the El Rio Del Tiempo attraction.
