New Cantina de San Angel Construction Pics: Mid-January 2010

Construction is fully underway at Cantina de San Angel for its transformation into a brand new 400-seat, waterside restaurant that includes both table service and quick-service options. The restaurant, located across from the pyramid in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion, will go from 3,500 square feet to 12,000 square feet.

The Cantina is bundled up tightly and there’s very little to see, says Erin Foster, who was recently in Disney World and snapped some photos.

Fingers are crossed that the Cantina will be ready for action by the time the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival rolls around!

    Another reason I’m glad that my 2010 trip is later in the year! My older son a (Mr. Picky Eater) loves to get churros here – there used to be a cart selling them on the other side of World Showcase but we haven’t found it the last two times. As I have said before, I hope that the refurb miraculously improves the service. That place can be S-L-O-W!

    Ro — Cool, right? It’s like a jungle!

    Janna — Ooh…yes, good point on the improved service.
