My Disney Favorites | La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot

October 10, 2013


I already have another Disney Favorite for you guys, and this one is my favorite of my favorites! If that makes any sense? But seriously, this is a good one. As I've grown older in my Disney loving years, I've learned a lot more things about the Disney Parks I never knew as a kid. For instance, when I turned 21, I realized how many amazing bars there are at Walt Disney World. Some are in the hotels and resorts, but the best bars and places to get any yummy alcoholic beverage is in the World Showcase at Epcot for sure. My favorite bar, or location that serves great drinks, is La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion. 


I heard about this place opening a few years back, and the first chance I got, I came and indulged in the best margaritas EVER. It was way beyond what I had expected! I used to enjoy the iced margaritas outside in the margarita kiosk in front of the Mexico Pavilion, and they are okay if you want an icee. La Cava del Tequila is tucked away inside the Mesoamerican pyramid, and as you enter the Mexican marketplace, it is down on the right. You can sit down inside and have chips and salsa, but I usually just stop by the bar and pick up one of their amazing margaritas... or two!


This is the Midnight Blue Margarita, pretty much just their version of a blue Curacao, and it is delicious! It used to come with a bright blue light inside as you can see above.


This is the Pineapple Margarita and it is great as well! 


My favorite margarita here is the one I'm holding above called the Cucumber Margarita. I know cucumbers and tequila may sound odd together, but it is ridiculously good! They literally crush cucumber and basil together in a mortar and pestle, add some premium silver tequila, orange liquor, caramelized pineapple juice, and agave nectar. One thing to remember too when getting any of these margaritas here is that they are very strong! This pic above was taken on my last trip this past July, and as you can see, I got two margaritas, the Midnight Blue and Cucumber. Hey, it was so dang hot outside, can you blame me? Needless to say, the rest of that day at Epcot was a little bit of a blur. So drink with caution!


Besides the margaritas, they serve a ton of different tequilas. The best way to sample a few of them is to get the Tequila Flight with the Sangrita. It comes with three different tequilas to sample, with a tomato based juice called the Sangrita as the last shot. So good!


Here's one of my best friends Erin and I with our Tequila Flight! 


And... here's the aftermath! By the way, if it is around or near the time of your birthday, ALWAYS make sure to wear your Disney Birthday Celebration pin! Every time I've worn mine here, they've given me a free shot. No lie!




Now in the Mexico marketplace right outside La Cava del Tequila, they sell some different tequilas like Jose Cuervo, Patron, and Sauza to name a few... in case you want to spice up your Pineapple Dole Whip or Lefou's Brew later at the Magic Kingdom? Just kidding.


Again, drink these margaritas responsibly and in moderation, or you'll end up taking goofy and embarrassing pics with your friends in sombreros!


Or... you'll be dancing in the marketplace with maracas. Nice. Anyways, I hope you have enjoyed this Disney favorite, and possibly had a few laughs at my expense. Please make sure to stop by this place when you are at the Mexico Pavilion, and get a cucumber margarita for me!
