The Mexico Pavilion is a Mexican-themed pavilion that is part of the World Showcase within Epcot at the Walt Disney World in Bay Lake, Florida, United States. It is located next to the Norway pavilion.


The Mexico Pavilion resembles a Mesoamerican pyramid with steps leading to entrance doors. Visitors enter through a gallery display of Mexican artwork, the "Animales Fantásticos" art collection. The central indoor area of the pavilion is themed as an outdoor twilight-lit Mexican village and marketplace, Plaza de los Amigos. At the edge of the plaza, a restaurant, San Ángel Inn Restaurante, overlooks an indoor lagoon with a themed backdrop of another pyramid and a smoldering volcano in the distance with themed lighting and smoke effects. To the side of the plaza, a boarding area leads to a boat ride, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, which commences in the indoor lagoon area.

Due to the location and height of the outdoor structure of the pavilion, the nightly fireworks shows are controlled from a small technical office on top-of the building.
