Overview of Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
This is more of a minor attraction, though it may be a pleasant and restful option on a warm day. It’s a very calm and physically easy indoor boat ride that shows you Panchito and Jose Carioca searching Mexico for Donald Duck before the big Three Caballeros reunion concert. You’ll also get to learn about Mexico. There’s feature-quality Disney animation, animatronics dolls, and a few special effects like simulated fireworks and a bit of mist. You’ll ride past a Mayan temple with a volcano in the distance, and the San Angel Inn restaurant.
Queue & seating information for Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
There’s an indoor queue inside the main building.
Wheelchair/ECV information: The boat seats are quite low to transfer into. You can use the seat as a step. Some boats are wheelchair accessible. If you’re in a wheelchair and you choose to transfer to a seat, you can bring your wheelchair close to the boat for transfer. It will then be moved out of the way. The accessible boat has a ramp to drive the wheelchair on to the front of the boat. There are seats for 6 guests, plus one wheelchair. Boarding will be at the same place as you exit.
More details about the experience of Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros
When the boat leaves the landing it slides slightly downhill over some bumpy rollers. From there the ride is smooth, except that the boat bumps the sides of the tracks as it moves along. Still, it’s mild and even the most sensitive people will usually be okay with it. When you arrive back at the docking station, your boat goes slightly uphill and briefly rides over bumpy rollers again. Your boat will most likely hit the boat in front of it, and it may be hit from behind repetitively before you’re allowed to disembark.
This is a water ride, and it smells musty to us in some areas. There are brief periods that are fairly dark. There are small flickering lights around some of the dolls. The simulated fireworks appeared to be made of lights on the ceiling.
