We will work our way around the World Showcase, beginning with the Mexico Pavilion.

San Angel Inn Restaurante is a table-service dining location. Here, guests dine under a blue-lit twilight sky. This Mexican restaurant is modeled after a 17th-century hacienda at the base of Mayan ruins. Although tables are a bit tight, the feeling of eating outdoors is terrific.

La Hacienda de San Angel is a table service restaurant located across the path from the pyramid. It serves authentic Mexican cuisine from various Mexican regions. This restaurant boasts waterfront dining. However, this location isn’t open for lunch. Guests find various house-made salsas with all levels of heat here.

Mexico’s quick service is located on the waterfront adjacent to the Hacienda restaurant. At La Cantina de San Angel, look for tacos, empanadas, and churros. This is a great place to eat in air conditioning or open-air tables. If you time it right, you can watch Harmonious from your table.


The next pavilion you’ll come to after Mexico is the Norway Pavilion. Here, you’ll find princesses, authentic shopping, and more.

Guests greet Disney Princesses inside a wonderfully themed medieval castle with soaring archways and cathedral ceilings. Sometimes, this location is seen as the “other” princess meal in contrast to Cinderella’s Royal Table.

However, we enjoyed Akershus more than Cinderella’s Royal Table because the Princess interaction is so wonderful here. See why we love dinner at Akershus HERE and breakfast HERE.

Kringla Bakeri og Kafe

Savor traditional Norwegian specialties like kringla sweet pretzels, sweet lefse flatbread, or the famous school bread. Then, enjoy Viking adult coffee! Beer is also available. This quick service location offers covered seating in front of the ordering area.


If you enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine, then don’t miss the China Pavilion.

While waiting for the show in China’s courtyard, I grabbed a couple of egg rolls and Hibiscus tea. Both were amazing and reasonably priced! The egg roll consisted of pork and cabbage/veggies. It had a fantastic crunch and was very fresh.
