La Cava del Tequila is the perfect place for adults who are looking for a fun drinking experience at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Resort. Located inside the Mexico pavilion at EPCOT, La Cava del Tequila can be found at the bottom right side of the stairs after entering the building. It seems to be the ideal tucked away spot for adults to spend an hour or so sampling their favorite tequila, or trying one of the 70 available varieties of premium tequilas. La Cava del Tequila is one of the best spots to meet with a few friends while touring EPCOT, as well as to make some new ones. The festive atmosphere in La Cava del Tequila, along with the potent and flavorful tequila drinks, makes it perfect for adults looking for some Disney magic to have a good time.
The Tequila Tour
The tequila tour is what I have named the entire experience of stopping in La Cava del Tequila at Disney’s EPCOT Resort and later leaving to tour the World Showcase. The combination of sampling a few tequila shots or specialty margaritas and then touring the different countries around the World Showcase has become one of my favorite Disney adult activities. To begin your tour, you must first navigate through a seemingly endless list of available tequila shots and specialty margaritas. Mexican beers are also available for non-tequila drinkers. My advice is to ask the bartenders about any drink you are interested in trying. On occasion, a shot glass sample of a margarita may be offered to help you decide.
Those who are familiar with the traditional Disney for adults “drinking around the world” experience, the tequila tour is a must-try. The potency of the tequilas and margaritas at La Cava del Tequila takes the edge off of the Disney-priced drinks. Two or three of the drinks at La Cava del Tequila is more than enough to get anyone into a rather happy mood.
The Tequila Menu
The 70 varieties of tequila at La Cava del Tequila will please even the most expert tequila fan. There are no cheap tequilas to be found at La Cava del Tequila, and all of the drinks are made with premium brands, easing the potential hangover factor the next day. Specialty margaritas are among the favorite choices for visitors. The avocado margarita is both interesting and surprisingly good ($12.50). The blood orange and jalapeno margaritas are also worth a try. Flavored salts and sugars are used to decorate the rim of margarita glasses and a number of exotic fruits are infused into the different specialty margarita blends. Both frozen and regular margaritas are offered. The Tequila Sunrise ($8.75) is a good choice for those looking for a potent but fruity drink.
Flights of tequila are a great way to try different tequilas and many guests seemed to be enjoying this method of tequila tasting on my last visit. Sangrita is typically served with many of the single tequila shots. Whatever your tequila choice or preference, La Cava del Tequila is likely to have it on the menu.
There are also a number of appetizers to sample while tequila tasting at La Cava del Tequila. Basic tortilla chips and salsa are on the menu, along with several other Mexican treats.
The tequila tour at Disney’s La Cava del Tequila is a self-guided tour which should be taken with some caution. It is not unusual to feel the effects of the tequila immediately exiting the Mexico pavilion. Drinking should be done over time, ideally with a side of chips and salsa. Photo opportunities should not be missed when you leave La Cava del Tequila, as there are sombreros and little Mexican hats to try on in the marketplace right outside the bar.
