Mouse Flicks: 'Gran Fiesta Tour'

by Mike Morizio, contributing writer

Take a ride on ‘Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros,’ and reminisce on the original ‘El Rio Del Tiempo.’

    While I like the 3 caballeros I prefer the old Rio del Tiempo format....more relaxing and "autentico" of Mexico, imo. Not every attraction has to be "disneyfied".

    I'm pretty sure most people agree with you, John. My wife certainly does.

    I'm happy to see the ride updated with HD video, and while I'm okay with the inclusion of the Three Cabalerros, I don't think the ride should be all about Donald.

    Perhaps they could have served as humorous tour guides?

    I really like the update. The first time I rode in 2002, I was sorely disappointed. Thought it was terrible. Now it's fun and festive, just like the Mexico I like to visit. Plus, and this is a big plus, my kids LOVE it. After our 2010 trip, it was the ride they talked about the most. They called it the Donald Boat Ride. I'm glad it's the way it is now. Don't change a thing. Unless they make the screens 3D!

    3D? Now there's an idea!

    As much as I loved the old mexico ride I can understand that generally EPCOT has very little in the way of "Disney" attractions for the kids so this is something that they can really enjoy while the parents enjoy experiencing the cultures of World Showcase. I certainly think another few attractions wouldn't go a-miss in World Showcase.
