Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros

"Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros" features Donald Duck, José Carioca (the parrot), and Panchito (the Mexican charro rooster) from the 1944 Disney film "The Three Caballeros."
It's an excursion by tour boat through vibrant, eye-filling sights accompanied by lively music. The people, culture, history and arts of Mexico are showcased, and guests catch a glimpse of some of Mexico's most famous cities, resorts and beaches, including locations such as Mexico City, Chichen Itza and Acapulco.
The "Gran Fiesta Tour" combines new live-action film shot on location in Mexico with an overlay of hand-drawn animation of the Three Caballeros. The custom animation is inspired by the original 1944 classic film and uses the same color palettes, stylistic design and graphic elements.
As the story goes, the caballeros have reunited for a grand performance in Mexico City. But along the way, Donald Duck disappears to take in the sights of the country, leaving José and Panchito to search for their missing friend. Their journey is a festive and colorful celebration of the beauty and culture of Mexico that is fun for guests of all ages.
Reuniting with their wandering amigo, the friends end their adventure with a grand fiesta celebration at sunset in Mexico City. Guests arrive at the new concert bandstand in Mexico City just in time to see -- and hear -- the much-anticipated Three Caballeros reunion concert.

Tips & Fun Facts

Gran Fiesta Tour replaced El Rio Del Tiempo in April 2007. El Rio Del Tiempo first opened on October 21st, 1982, almost three weeks after the Mexico pavilion itself opened.
Fibre-optics are used on the ceiling during the final scene to create the firework effects.
The artifacts on display in the gallery section of the attraction are genuine Mexican artifacts on loan from various Mexican museums. They are often rotated with others to ensure preservation.

Notice the arrangement of three clay pots in the marketplace scene.
On the mural on the left side near the end of the boat ride is a picture of a boy holding two maracas slightly behind his head ...right where Mickey's ears belong.
