Cinco de Mayo at the Mexico Pavilion in Disney’s Epcot Theme Park

If you’re in Disney World for Cinco De Mayo, do not pass go and do not collect $200. Head directly to the Tequila Bar at the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot to dance to the Mariachi Band with your family.

At La Hacienda De San Angel, feast on Queso Fundido (a delectable dish of warmed cheese with pablano peppers and chorizo) and/or grilled red snapper. This is a great place for watching the nightly fireworks, too!

Adobe Gila’s on International Drive at Pointe Orlando

Wondering what the best day on the calendar year would be to visit Pointe Orlando on International Drive? Well that’d be Cinco de Mayo. Enjoy a fabulous Mexican dish (and a drink or two) at Adobe Gila’s. On Cinco de Mayo, the area outside of the bar is more than just an entrance. It’s one great big street party featuring live music. All night long.

Cinco de Mayo in Thornton Park

Check out the Mucho de Mayo Party happening at Mucho Tequila and Tacos Restaurant in Downtown Orlando’s Thornton Park. While you’re nearby, you might want to duck into Tijuana Flats for a $2 Mexican beer.
