Tequila bar opening at Epcot, but attraction in Japan closes

Sentinel Staff Writer

The World Showcase section of Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park is in the midst of some small but noteworthy comings and goings.

A week from today, the resort expects to launch the soft opening of La Cava del Tequila, a 46-seat lounge inside the Mexico pavilion. Disney says the space will chronicle the history of Mexico's most famous export.

Oh, and it will also sell some 70 varieties of tequila. The drinks will be offered both straight and in margaritas; Mexican appetizers will also be for sale.

But even as one attraction arrives, another is departing. The Tin Toy Stories exhibit in the Japan pavilion has closed.

Considered something of a hidden jewel in Epcot, the oft-overlooked exhibit displayed more than 350 antique Japanese tin toys, a colorful collection that included characters ranging from Mickey Mouse to Godzilla.
