The interior of the Mexican pavilion's Mayan pyramid looks like a night-time scene in a Mexican marketplace. The interior takes inspiration from the Blue Bayou in Disneyland, including the boat ride that goes though the pavilion. Gran Fiesta Tour replaced the El Rio de Tiempo ride in 2007, and is now themed to Disney's Three Caballeros (Donald Duck, Jose Carioca, and Panchito), showing the sights and sounds of Mexico.

I really enjoyed the ride. The Caballeros were well placed. 8/10. - David L.

Don't expect PotC, and you'll be happy. - E G

A cute ride. nothing special, but a nice distraction. - Sean Huckel

Weird ride - Andrew Dougherty

It's lighthearted. I love the way the animation has been set into what was a rather tired ride, making it more fun and lively. It makes me think a visit to Mexico would be a good idea. - Martin Rees
