    Will La Cave de Tequila be open during the deluxe evening extended hours?

    Welcome to planDisney, Linda! It's wonderful to see you here, and thank you for thinking of us as a Disney vacation planning resource.

    La Cava del Tequila is one of my favorite spots for a specialty margarita, so I understand completely why you'd be interested to know if it is open for a late-night cocktail during the EPCOT Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! This is such a wonderful benefit for those registered Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, and other eligible hotels to enjoy some additional time in the theme parks on select nights. 

    I did a little bit of research and found that the operating hours for La Cava del Tequila end at 9:00 PM on most of the nights when EPCOT is scheduled to host Extended Evening Theme Park Hours over the next few weeks. This leads me to believe that it would not be open during that time. What a bummer! 

    But, Linda, you've inspired me to go on a side quest to see if we can't find a proper margarita available during the late-night hours. While most other dining locations in the Mexico Pavilion are also scheduled to close at 9:00 PM, I found that La Cantina de San Angel lists an additional hour - from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM - exclusively for Extended Evening Hours. While I'm not sure if they will have a more limited menu available during that time, I am hopeful that you'll find something that hits the spot! You might also consider Le Vins de Chefs de France which also lists additional operating hours during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, so you could toast with a glass of champagne or premium wine! Schedules are always subject to change, so I'd encourage you to check the My Disney Experience app or the Hours & Events Calendar for any updates to operating hours as your visit approaches. 

    I hope this gives you some options, Linda, and I know you're going to have the best time exploring EPCOT during the Extended Evening Hours. Don't forget that Guests have an additional opportunity to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at 6:00 PM on those select nights with Extended Evening Hours. That's one more chance to rewind time and space and save the galaxy, set to the grooviest soundtrack on Earth!

    If we can lend any further recommendations to make your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort even more magical, please come back and visit us again, here at planDisney. It would be a pleasure to see you again, Linda!

    Magically yours,
