Random Scenes from EPCOT’s Mexico

Just a random collection of photographs today, taken in EPCOT’s Mexico pavilion. Mexico has long been a favorite of mine, ever since I discovered the frozen mango margaritas there! But there are other things that make Mexico special, too. Here are just a few:

ABOVE: It only LOOKS like a pineapple – these guys are making tequila! This is part of a mural that covers the wall in La Cava Del Tequila, the relatively new tequila bar inside the Mexico pavilion.

ABOVE: This lizard carving is a sample of folk art from Oaxaca (wah-HAH-ka), Mexico. I thought he was cute, but if he was real and on my lanai – not so much!

102420101202-WDW-EPCOT-MEXICO-dead-dudes

ABOVE: The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that occurs right after Halloween. This festival dates back to Aztec times (only back then, it was a month long!). People remember and honor their ancestors on this day, sometimes dressing up as a skeleton in clothing. They even visit the graves and make a picnic of the deceased’s favorite foods!

After I’m gone, please bring chocolate 😉

  1. I trust that your favorite tequila concoctions are made of the silver label variety…

    Lovely art at Disney, but that lizard looks and almost feel real. I’d rather not find out by actually getting near it…

  2. The lizards are harmless enough but they do tend to poop profusely, which is why I don’t like them on the lanai. I mean, who wants to track lizard poop all over? LOL 😉
