It’s easy to develop a soft spot for the bland, 8-minute boat float that, for its cheesiness, has been nicknamed “Rio de Queso.” As you pass movie screens, jiggling dolls, and dancing Day of the Dead skeletons, you quickly realize you’re enjoying the product of Mexican tourist board input. Along the way, expect animated appearances by the 1940s characters the Three Caballeros—never mind that only Panchito Pistoles the rooster is Mexican (José Carioca the parrot is Brazilian, and Donald Duck is American).

At the ride’s climax, they appear together in “live” form—these figures are actually part of Disney history. They were originally made for the Mickey Mouse Revue, a show that opened with the Magic Kingdom in 1971 and later spent 26 years in Tokyo Disneyland. The experience is sweet, and it’s a worthy siesta break.
