DDW Pic 585. Gran Fiesta Tour
Gran Fiesta Tour
Today we say happy 6th birthday to the Gran Fiesta Tour attraction in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot. Although the "boat ride" has been there since opening day in 1982, the ride was enhanced and renamed on April 6th, 2007. Prior to that date, the Gran Fiesta Tour was called El Rio Del Tiempo. It was a journey through various scenes from Mexico's history. After 25 years, Disney decided to make the attraction a little more entertaining by adding the characters from the 1944 film, The Three Caballeros. These characters include Panchito, Jose Carioca, and the world famous Donald Duck.
