Ohhh We Have The Stars To Guide Us…

It’s funny how you can ride a ride several times, and not realize how fun it can really be until you ride it with that someone special.  I have been on Epcot’s Mexcian theme ride “Gran Fiesta Tour” many, many times, but I really never enjoyed it as much as when they rethemed it with “The Three Cabelleros.”  Why? Well, it’s that catchy tune they sing.  We have had it on an old Disney CD for years, but not until this last year did it play more often in my car.  It’s the silliest song, but I tell you, you sing that at the top of your lungs, and it’s nothing but smiles and fun. (Or they will think you just have gone crazy).    During my last visit to WDW, I got to ride this with somone and we sang it loud and proud together- a memory I will cherish forever!  Enjoy the pics I took of this fun ride!

“The Three Caballeros”

We’re three caballeros
Three gay caballeros
They say we are birds of a feather
We’re happy amigos
No matter where he goes
The one, two, and three goes
We’re always together

We’re three happy chappies
With snappy serapes
You’ll find us beneath our sombreros
We’re brave and we’ll stay so
We’re bright as a peso
Who says so? We say so!
The three caballeros

Ahhhh!
We have the stars to guide us
Guitars here beside us
To play as we go
We sing and we samba
We shout ‘aye caramba!
What means aya caramba?
Oh yes, I don’t know

Through fair or stormy weather
We stand close together
Like books on the shelf
And pals though we may be
When some latin baby
Says yes, no, or maybe
Each man is for himself!

  1. Oh, my word… I LOVED this post! Everyone makes fun of me for loving this ride so much :). To be honest, I think I love it because it’s one of the attractions I can actively remember from when I went as a kid for the first time (pre-Three Caballeros” :). How I adore when it takes you by the volcano and you see all the lights twinkling from San Angel Inn. Nice to see someone give this one a shout out :)! Thanks, Amy!!

  2. While I generally avoid the purist sentiments, I have to admit that the original el rio del tiempo ride was much preferred. Regardless, the whole pavilion remains one of the highlights for us…even before we actually lived in Mexico! It’s as close as we WDW folks can get to the Blue Bayou experience at Disneyland.
