    It would seem that there are a lot of us who love World Showcase, so I thought it might be nice to "take a trip" and visit each country and talk about what's there and what we like or dislike about it. I'll start a new thread every day or so for the next country on the trip.

    If you have photos that you have taken, then please share them as well.

    Ok, we'll go clockwise and start with:

    Mexico

    What a great idea!

    You know my only niggle with Mexico? It doesn't feel 'different' enough! Don't get me wrong, I love it like as I do all of World Showcase, but it doesn't feel exotic to me. To be fair, I always go round WS the other way, so I'm pretty knackered by the time I reach Mexico, so should probably spend more time there than I have done.

    The flip side of this is last time I was there, an outside performer was singing a song with his guitar and a huge crowd had amassed to listen to him. The song must have been really popular, as everyone was joining in and dancing. The atmosphere was great and I had to stop just to soak it up.

    I like wandering around inside looking at all the different items that are on sale. It's also a nice place to go out of the sun and heat. I went on the ride once and I haven't been on it again maybe I should try it again one day.

    I love that Donald is dressed in his sombrero and as he is tucked away a lot of people don't realise he is there.

    I haven't tried any food there yet, not because I don't like the look of it but because we always hold out until France.

    Dean my lovely other half felt cheated as he doesn't class Mexican Donald as the 'real' Donald! I agree though, there is not a lot of atmosphere I found. Inside the temple was ok, you could easily walk past if you didn't see other people walking inside and out.

    I love Mexico! There is so much colour and vibrancy in there. The art and artifact exhibits are very interesting. The last time we were there they had artists showing their craft. Fascinating.
    Then inside, the marketplace is beautiful. Very atmospheric with lots of little treasures to find.
    Outside, who can resist moving to the Mariachi band!

    great idea! We used to always eat in the San Angel Restaurant, I loved the Queso Fundido and of course the Margaritas. They're huge, i drank 2 with dinner once and was quite wobbly on the way out of the park

    Over the years, I have developed quite an appreciation for WS Mexico. I love wandering through the mercado, especially during those pesky afternoon showers that always seem to pop up! I actually genuinely enjoy El Rio del Tiempo, it reminds me of a few of the beach vacations we've taken over the years, and I find the music festive

    Everyone in our family LOVES the sombreros!

    And, this past September, we enjoyed an AMAZING Tequila Pairing Lunch at La Hacienda!

    And yes, I do LOVE La Cava del Tequila

    Right then, I'd like to be there right now...who's with me!?

    We too love to eat at the San Angel Inn.

    It's usually one of our must do's on any trip!
