    Hello. We have reservations at San Angel and would love to have a table beside the water ride. How should we go about making this request?

    Bienvenidos, Rachel! Thank you so much for stopping by to see us here at planDisney! We're talking about one of my absolute favorite restaurants in all of the Walt Disney World Resort today, so pull up a chair and let's enjoy some delicious tastes of Mexico at EPCOT!

    Tucked inside the pyramid of the Mexico pavilion is a true Disney dining gem, the San Angel Inn Restaurante. On my earliest visits to EPCOT, I remember floating past San Angel Inn on the boat ride and seeing Guests seated at candlelit tables just soaking in the atmosphere. I was so excited when I finally got to try it myself one day, and it did not disappoint! I've been in love with everything about this restaurant ever since, from the food to the ambience, and I'm so happy for you to experience it.

    Sitting at a coveted table near the water, with its gorgeous view of the jungle ruins and erupting volcano beyond, will definitely take your meal to the next level. To try for a waterside table, I recommend arriving a little early for your reservation and politely putting your request in with a Cast Member at the podium. As you might imagine, these tables are quite popular, so you'll want to let the Cast Member know you're willing to wait if necessary. But with a little luck and a lot of patience, hopefully your wait will pay off with a dining experience that is muy excelente!

    Rachel, while you're waiting for your table, there's plenty to explore in the Plaza de los Amigos, or the "Plaza of Friends." From traditional Mexican tapestries to sugar skulls to sombreros, jewelry, and more, you'll find so many colorful wares on display, you'll be tempted to buy one of everything! Also, if the line isn't too long at La Cava del Tequila, step inside to order one of the signature margaritas.

    You're going to love your time in the Mexico pavilion, Rachel! Fingers crossed you're able to enjoy your meal by the water! I wish you a magical Walt Disney World vacation, and I hope you'll come back and see us again real soon.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
