Our next stop in our Disney Dining Review series is going to be in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot. Again we will review and score the restaurant on 5 categories. So if you haven’t figured it out yet, we LOVE mexican! Mexican drinks, Mexican food, we love it all. So for Kyle’s birthday in 2013 we chose to have dinner inside the pyramid at San Angel Inn in Mexico!
Inside the pyramid it’s always a night under the stars!
San Angel is such a beautiful restaurant on the Disney property!

One of the absolute best things about the Disney World Resort is the variety and quality of the restaurants. When it comes to dining in Disney there are quite a few things to take into consideration. Atmosphere (how well themed is the restaurant), Ambiance (location and overall feel), Service, Menu Options, and of course the food. In our Disney Dining Reviews we are going to explain our experience and rate each one of these categories on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best 1 being the worst. I’m also going to be pretty harsh in my critiquing because Disney has such a high standard, so remember 10/10 is a major wow!

Artist Rendering of Everest while rumors were circulating before the announcement
needed more thrills. During an event to commemorate the 5 year anniversary of Animal Kingdom the 18th Disney Mountain was announced to add thrill to the young park. The 18th mountain would be Expedition Everest, a journey through the Forbidden Mountain where you encounter the mythical yeti much like the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland but on a MUCH grander scale. It would take another 3 years to actually build the ride and the 3 years prior to the announcement were spent researching and designing the 4th highest Summit in Florida and the tallest of the Disney Mountains.
