    Marta from FL Asked

    Hi, planing 30 yr anniversary dinner for either Sept. 25-26. We tried to book it at the Mexican restaurant in Epcot, (tables inside ride overlook the boat rides). It seems there are no times avail. Need assist. please... Marta 

    Bienvenida, Marta...we're glad you stopped by planDisney with your question! 

    The original San Angel Inn is a well-known restaurant in Mexico City that sits on a former monastery's grounds. Lucky for us, we don't even need a passport to visit EPCOT's San Angel Inn Restaurante! I start craving some Queso Fundido and an Avocado Margarita every time I sail by on the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. The dimly lit restaurant creates the perfect ambiance for a romantic anniversary meal. Where else can you sit across from your Prince Charming while a volcano erupts nearby?! Fun fact...if you look close enough, you might see a hidden Mickey materialize at times in the rising smoke!

    I understand how disappointing it feels when you can't get into a restaurant that you've been looking forward to experiencing. During these times of social distancing, restaurant capacity has been reduced, which may be why you are having trouble getting a reservation. When this happens to me, I enlist the help of an online reservation finder tool. If you do a Google search, several websites will pop up; my favorite is Touring Plans. Most will charge a small subscription fee. My other piece of advice is to check the Walt Disney World website often. I've been able to find some coveted last-minute reservations, especially if willing to dining at off-peak times; those "early bird" 4:00 PM dinner reservations are usually easier to get. If this doesn't work, and you have your heart set on Mexican food, try getting a reservation at La Hacienda de San Angel, located just across the path. It may not have the same atmosphere, but the food is delicious!

    I hope this helps, Marta! Don't forget to say hola to José Carioca for me!
