Cinco De Mayo - Limited Time Magic - Three Caballeros May 5 - 11

I didn't see this posted yet but was on Facebook...
http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/let...-fiesta-epcot/

May 5, 2013 to May 11, 2013 This May, Walt Disney World Resort is throwing one festive party& and it's all set to go down at the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot! In honor of Cinco de Mayo and Día de los Niños, Epcot will be hosting "¡Fiesta!"a week-long celebration honoring the pride of Mexico, the personality of its people and the color of its culture.

From meeting classic characters to eating authentic Mexican foods and collecting magic merchandise, this is sure to be one fiesta you won't soon forget! Entertainment and character experiences are subject to change.

Meet The Three Caballeros Don't miss a rare opportunity to say "¡Saludos Amigos!" to three of the most famous Latin American lovebirds in history, The Three Caballeros! Panchito, Jose Carioca and, of course, el Pato Donald are getting the band back together and they're ready to pose for a picture or twostop by and meet these classic Characters while you have the chance! Move Your Feet to the Music Once you've had your fill of The Three Caballeros, get ready to groove to music from south of the border, and maybe even move your feet a little!

First, soak up the spirit of the occasion with an energetic set by delightful marionettes. Then, float through the romanticized beauty of Mexico's history with some folkloric dancing. Finally, work up an appetite with a little dancing of your own, set to the tunes of the world-renowned band, Mariachi Cobre!

Feast on Festive Mexican Eats Ready for an authentic Mexican food experience? San Angel Inn Restaurante and La Hacienda de San Angel will both be a huge part of the occasion and they're preparing a selection of fiesta-themed offerings to celebrate! Check out the listings below for the Cinco de Mayo-specific menu, complete with appetizers, entrees and even a dessert!
Appetizers Cream of Chile Poblano: Chile poblano, cilantro, onion, garlic and Mexican cream, garnished with tortilla strips, poblano peppers and cream ($7.50) Chalupas de Chicharron: Corn dough topped with roasted chipotle sauce, shredded chicken, pork rind in green tomatillo sauce, fresh cheese, sour cream and avocado ($11.50)

Entrees Chile en Nogada: Egg-battered stuffed poblano pepper with pork, almonds, raisins, apple, pineapple, cinnamon, roasted tomato and garlic, topped with a walnut cream sauce ($24.50) Enchiladas de Mole Poblano: Corn tortillas filled with marinated chicken, topped with mole poblano sauce, sesame seeds and Mexican cream ($23.50) Pollo Rostizado en Salsa de Mercado: Slow roasted French-chicken breast, topped with a roasted green tomato, pine nuts, garlic, onion and saffron sauce ($23.50)

Dessert Camotes en Leche Condensada: Sweet potato dessert topped condensed milk, garnished with almond brittle ($7.00) And for something fun to wash it all down with, stop by La Cava where you can sample an assortment of different drinks, including margarita-flavored Horchata and zesty Micheladas. You can even try the famous "Banderita"three separate shots that together form the colors of the Mexican flag!

Cinco de Mayo Ear Hats Before this fiesta has you ready for a siesta, pop into a shop at the Mexico Pavilion and purchase a Cinco de Mayo ear hat! Capturing the essence, color and iconic symbols of Mexico, there's quite simply no more festive way to commemorate the year of the ear!

Will it be a group photo or will there be separate lines for each character?

Cool! Chiles en nogada and mole poblano are 2 delicious authentic dishes native to central Mexico, although the chiles normally have pomegranate seeds as part of the dish....

Kenny the Pirate has a group photo (not current) of them on his website, so, hopefully the three of them will be together!

Now this is something I'd truly enjoying being a part of. I'd love if I could have a group picture with the Three Caballeros.

I agree that there have been some hits but snow in Canada? I was fortunate to be there when the DDs were into their boy band phase.

Just finished the meet and greet. It's one line for all three characters (Panchito started dancing with me!). They're signing autographs and they also are giving out commemorative cards. It was a really fun followup to all of yesterday's Star Wars festivities!
