A fun ride, especially for young children or just to beat the heat of a Florida summer!

It is really cute. The boat goes faster than you can see all the different videos/actions in each scene. It has funny lines, and Donald is hilarious. I love the fireworks at the end. It a wonderfully classic Epcot ride.

This attraction is starting to feel old to me, and I feel like it would need renovation before I felt the need to go on it again.

Cute and always a nice break from the heat.

Needs modernization, but great since they added Donald to the mix years ago. Another great opportunity to sit down and relax in air conditioning on a hot day.

We ride this every trip. I love it. Never a long line. Hate to rate it well, because I don't want everyone to find it!

I righted every time. Could use some updating.

Think of this ride as the Mexican version of It's a Small World". Love riding past the 'erupting' volcano and the diners at San Angel Inn (a great place to eat!).

This ride is like a Mexico-specific Small World. It's got a fun song and is one of the only rides in World Showcase so its a must-do for my kids every trip.

So fun! Nice place to get out of the heat and sit for a bit. "They say we are birds of a feather"!

This is a simple ride, but always enjoy the fireworks at the end!

An upgrade over the original. Cute if you have time to spare or are awaiting a FP elsewhere. Beautiful, atmospheric interior of the pavilion.

How can you pass up on Donald Duck? Always a must-do for me.

A sentimental favorite because my kids liked it when they were younger, but really there's not much to it.

Ride like Small World. Fun and cool inside on a hot day.
