Hello everyone, and welcome to today’s #DisneyWorldCountdown post!  Today is Day 81 in our countdown, and for today’s post we are featuring a restaurant that we’ve never eaten at before — but one that is on our reservation list for this year!  I’m talking about La Hacienda de San Angel, located near the Mexico Pavilion on the shores of the World Showcase Lagoon.  This restaurant, from all I hear, is a great one because it provides excellent access to view Illuminations during your meal.  Our dinner is set for 6:30 PM the day we eat there, so I’m thinking we’ll be done with dinner prior to Illuminations starting, but that’s okay too, we’ll still be able to enjoy what I hope is a great meal!

The restaurant doesn’t look like it would be big enough to allow for people to come back for a good viewing spot for the fireworks, so I don’t think we would be able to come back for Illuminations and see it from the restaurant (like you can do at the California Grill, for example, for Wishes).  Can anyone confirm that for me if you know?  If you do know, please let me know via the comments, and thanks!

Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to eat, but believe it or not, I have never eaten at a Mexican restaurant at the Walt Disney World Resort.  This restaurant is one that I’m really looking forward to eating at, and I can’t wait to give you a dining review after we eat there!

Thanks for stopping by everyone, now go out and make it a great Disney Day!
