It’s finally open! I’m so thrilled that the Cava is ready to serve (and even more thrilled that I get to share with you all the info about my tequila tasting at the Food and Wine Festival later this Fall!). This will be a welcome addition to the beautiful Mexico pavilion — especially for us foodies. Be sure to pick up your sombrero on the way out.

Here’s Disney’s official press release about La Cava del Tequila in Epcot’s Mexico. Enjoy!

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Tasty tequilas and mouthwatering margaritas are on tap at La Cava del Tequila, a new offering for Epcot guests to explore the heritage and tradition of tequila-making in Mexico.

Tucked away in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, La Cava del Tequila beckons guests with more than 70 types of authentic tequila, ranging from the simplest to the rarest of them all, aged to perfection and made from the finest distilled spirits from the agave plant. Tequilas range in price from $8 to $50 for a specialty tequila.

Amid warm décor, art work and original artifacts all celebrating the Mexican heritage, a “Tequila Ambassador” is on hand to educate Walt Disney World guests on the history of tequila-making.

Also on the drink menu: Exotic and uniquely blended margaritas, introducing a variety of flavored salts, spices and tropical fresh fruits masterfully prepared by experienced mixologists.

A variety of quick tastes, tapas style, will be available, including freshly made guacamole and ceviche as well as mahi mahi tostadas with diced mango and avocado and blue crab tostados with chipotle mayo and Valentina sauce.

The 30-seat La Cava del Tequila is open from noon until Epcot park closing time. It is connected to the famous San Angel Inn as part of the Mexico pavilion, a popular stop for Walt Disney World guests.

    so this tequila bar is a permanent addition? I guess I was just thinking that it was for the Food and Wine Festival!! Thanks for posting!

  2. GrimGhost says:

    I missed by three days! I can’t wait to get back and try it out.

  3. AJ says:

    @Heidi: Yep! It looks beautiful, doesn’t it?

    @GrimGhost: Oh no! When do you go back? I’ll have tons of photos/reviews on the blog by late Sept, but it’s never the same than when you’re there in person.

    One Tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor!

  5. Pass the guacamole…I’m ready!

  6. Amy says:

    This place looks great. I wish it would have been open when I was there, but I guess it gives me another good reason to go back.

  7. AJ says:

    Ha ha! Stephanie that’s hilarious (and likely true…)!

    I’m with YOU, Amanda!

    Amy — tequila is always a good reason to go back!

  8. Big Bad Wolf says:

    AJ: Any info on how the rare tequila tastes (since you got tickets) would be much appreciated! My taste buds are just crying out for some new tequila flavors!!!

  9. AJ says:

    I’ll do my best! I wish my taste buds could type!

  10. Jessica says:

    Do you know how to sign up for the Tequila tasting during the food & wine festival?

  11. AJ says:

    Jessica: You can call 407-WDW-FEST to see if there are any tastings during the time you’ll be in WDW. I know that several of them are sold out, so call soon!

  12. Ryan says:

    Went in September… All of their taquila drinks are unbelievable! Its truly a treasure! $12.50 a drink, but the size of 2.

  13. Big Bad Wolf says:

    $12.50 for a mixed drink? That is a little outrageous… but then again, I could swear that a mixed drink over at the Polynesian cost me about $7.50 or better when I was there in 2005. A bit steep for both… but hey, you are at Disney World… where else would you rather be?

    Anyone know what the price range is on shots of the expensive tequila? In NJ, I think shots can go for anywhere from $3 to $5.

  14. Aj says:

    Shots for the expensive stuff (“Specialty and Rare Tequila) runs from around $24 – 55. The menu says half shots are available. The blanco tequila shots run from $7 and the anejos run from $10

  15. Jess says:

    The margaritas are $12.50, but they are worth every penny. This is the only place on Disney property that I have found that doesn’t water down their mixed drinks. Their house tequila is Sauza and their ritas are by far the best around!! I used to love the backscratchers at the Tambu Lounge at the Poly, but the last few times we have stayed there and had them they have been water down with fruit juice. Very disappointed.

  16. Cortney says:

    I would like the recipe for the Mexican sangria that they only serve in the la cava de tequila.

  17. AJ says:

    Hi Cortney — because Disney Food Blog is an unofficial website, we cannot provide you with recipes that aren’t publicly available. Here’s a primer on .

  18. Kara Blount says:

    Do we need a reservation for lunch? Or can we just pop in and wait a while to eat? We will be there around Halloween. Thanks

  19. AJ says:

    Hi Kara — You can’t really eat lunch here. For lunch, head to San Angel Inn or La Hacienda de San Angel in the Epcot pavilion. Both spots take reservations. :-)

  20. Joy says:

    I’ve heard conflicting responses on this, does La Cava del Tequila actually sell bottles of tequila, or only do tastings?
