Best Tequila Spots at Walt Disney World

In honor of Tequila Day, here’s a look at my fave Animal Kingdom tequila bev – the Green Shimmering Margarita.

Made with Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Ancho Reyes Liqueur, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup, and Pineapple Juice, this drink has just the right amount of spice and nails the sweet to strong ratio. It’s easy to drink, surprisingly strong, and oh so refreshing. You can grab one at Dawa Bar or Nomad Lounge.

Other great tequila spots on WDW property? The most obvious of course is Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion where La Cava del Tequila, Choza de Margarita, and San Angel Inn serve up a wide array of quality varietals. The Margarita flight at San Angel Inn is a solid treat if you are a tequila lover who appreciates margs served with spice.

Additional yummy options? Check out the Margarita Flight at the Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios, Frontera Cocina and Dockside Margaritas at Disney Springs, and Trader Sam’s and the pool bar at the Poly.
