Mexico in World Showcase, Epcot park in Walt Disney World

The Mexican pavilion is dominated by a pyramid, loosely modeled after the pre-Columbian pyramid in Teotihuacan known as the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, dating back to 150-200 CE. The nightly fireworks show "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth" is controlled from a small office atop the building.

The head of the mythical serpent creature Quetzalcoatl has been included in this replica along the entrance stairs.

Visitors enter through a display of Mexican artwork, the "Animales Fantasticos" art collection.

Inside the pyramid is a night time square with stars twinkling above (Plaza de los Amigos), Spanish-era colonial buildings, a restaurant, and a market selling Mexican items.

At the edge of the plaza, a restaurant, San Angel Inn, overlooks an indoor lagoon. San Angel Inn is the sibling to Mexico City's restaurant of the same name, which dates back to 1692.

To the side of the plaza, a boarding area leads to a boat ride, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros.
