San Angel Inn
San Angel Inn runs the San Angel Inn Restaurant, La Cava del Tequila, La Cantina and La Hacienda Restaurant in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot® World Showcase, continuing a rich and fascinating tradition of hospitality woven into the tapestry of Mexico itself.
The colorful origins of the original San Angel Inn in Mexico City can be traced back to 1692, when a beautiful hacienda was built near the town. For years this hacienda was a tranquil retreat for Spanish aristocracy in Colonial Mexico. After Mexican Independence it continued to host some of the country’s most famous figures from General Santa Ana to Pancho Villa. In 1915, the hacienda became a popular restaurant, and in 1962, the Debler family took it over and made the restaurant, San Angel Inn, one of the finest in Mexico. Known around the world, San Angel Inn is the recipient of numerous awards in fine dining.
At the San Angel Inn restaurant in Disney’s Mexico Pavilion in Epcot you will be dining in perpetual twilight. The subdued lighting provides an intimate setting in this romantic restaurant modeled after a 17th Century hacienda that features traditional Mexican cuisine for lunch and dinner, complimented by a great selection of traditional Margaritas, beer and wine. The restaurant blends the charm and distinction of old times with modern luxury. When seated in the rear of the restaurant, patrons can enjoy watching the boats of the Gran Fiesta Tour go by. Mexican tile floors and stucco walls add to the authentic atmosphere. While sipping your margarita and enjoying your meal, you’ll feel as if you are at a hacienda.
Lake Buena Vista is a city in Orange County, Florida, United States. It is mostly known for being the mailing address for Walt Disney World—although almost all of the resort facilities, including all four theme parks, are physically located in the adjacent city of Bay Lake.
The lake, which was called “Blake Lake” before its acquisition by Disney, was named for Buena Vista Street in Burbank, California, where Disney’s corporate headquarters are located. Several Walt Disney Company business entities had names containing “Buena Vista“, a Spanish phrase that means “good view”.
In 2015, guide maps for the Disney Springs shopping, dining, and entertainment district started promoting Village Lake, as “Lake Buena Vista”. The actual lake and the promoted lake are connected via a stream, which is crossed by a bridge linking Disney Springs’ Marketplace area
