Walt Disney World Review: La Cava Del Tequila

In honor of National Margarita Day, I figure it is time to review one of my treasured places in Walt Disney World.
February 22 is National Margarita Day


It is a small, dark place located in Epcot.  It is - La Cava Del Tequila!  This small, dark place is one of Walt Disney World's worst kept secret.
In this building is where you'll find the worst kept secret of Walt Disney World. 

There are two ways to get a margarita from La Cava, you can stand in the to-go line and take your margarita with you to shop in the Mexican Pavilion or take it outside as you walk around World Showcase.  The second option is to sit in La Cava.  We normally always opt for a table so we can enjoy the trio chip dip while having our margaritas.
The worst kept secret: how amazing the margaritas are at La Cava!

First things first - the margarita menu.  This is the menu as of January, 2016.


First the bad news: My favorite margarita - the San Angel - had been taken off the menu! Now, the good news! Thankfully, our server let us know that it could be made just with better tequila and thus a better San Angel margarita.  This is what everyone at the table decided to go with.

San Angel margaritas and the Trio Combo.

We also ordered the Trio Combo. The trio is "the perfect combination of guacamole, cheese dip and salsa served with chips."  And I have to agree, it is quite perfect.  I will warn you that since these are made in house the spiciness level of the guacamole and cheese dip can very - it can either be quite spicy or rather mild. The salsa is a smokey tomato salsa.

Given this spot's name, there is a very extensive tequila menu as well.
 


For those of you who aren't tequila drinkers, or margarita drinkers they do offer beer and sangria.

Now for margaritas I've tried in the past:

The JalapeƱo Margarita.  This can either be really spicy or the perfect drink with just a touch of heat.  This margarita is still on the menu at La Cava and is one of my all-time favorite margaritas.

This is their Wild Passion Fruit Margarita with mango foam.  This margarita is very sweet and taste as though you're drinking juice instead of a margarita.  The foam is interesting and fun.

This is the Maelstrom Margarita and now has a permanent place on the menu.  This is La Cava's tribute to a favorite ride of many - the Maelstrom - which was closed and to be reimagined as Frozen Ever After which is scheduled to open later this year. This margarita is also sweet but does have that tequila kick to it.
