EVERYTHING ON THE MENU REVIEW: Choza de Margarita IS OPEN in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion!

Wow, are we EVER glad to say “Welcome!” to Choza de Margarita — here at long last!!!

Choza de Margarita (originally announced as Choza Tequila) is the brand new outdoor margarita bar opening TODAY right next to Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion. Once upon a time, we could all pick up a margarita — or two ;) — at the small, thatched roof Mexico Margarita Stand during a World Showcase stroll. But when the neighboring Norway Pavilion expanded to add new Frozen-themed attractions, we were saddened to learn that the humble little kiosk would be closed to accommodate construction in that area.

The operative word in that sentence, of course, is “WERE.”

Because CHOZA IS OPEN!!!

Atmosphere

Choza de Margarita is located directly adjacent to the Pavilion’s pyramid. And its design details are fitting to its location. If you remember the ol’ Margarita Stand, then you’ll recall the little thatched roof placed atop a kiosk that held just a couple of Cast Members at any given time.

Well, the thatched roofing still sets the scene at Choza de Margarita, but this new spot can definitely hold more than a few people at once! [Read more…]

MARGARITAS.

Thanks to the La Cava del Tequila Twitter account AND the new Choza de Margarita Twitter account, we’ve been able to sneak a peek at a few of the offerings on the way.  [Read more…]
