I started sharing vintage images from the Marketing Resource Center almost one year ago today here on the Disney Parks Blog. My very first post was a construction photo of Mexico Pavilion in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
I thought it would be fitting to share a look at the Mexico Pavilion again, as Cinco de Mayo approaches this weekend. Here’s a look at the Mexico Pavilion prior to opening in May 1982.
While the area has seen a few changes over the years (El Gran Fiesta Boat Tour, La Hacienda de San Angel), the same pyramid has greeted guests entering the World Showcase since opening day.
