A new Mexican restaurant is coming to Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Resort Area next year, allowing Guests usually entering World Showcase through the International Gateway to still take the proverbial “left turn” before they even enter the Park!

We at Disney Fanatic have learned that Rosa Mexicano will open its first Orlando Area location at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, which will feature over 100 varieties of tequila and other agave-based spirits and its famous frozen pomegranate margarita.

According to the Press Release,

The restaurant, helmed by Manuel Trevino, Vice President of Culinary, will feature dramatic design elements familiar to fans of the brand, to transport guests on a unique culinary journey. The 5,500-square-foot restaurant will offer various seating areas with capacity of about 300 guests, including a 30-person bar and a beautiful private dining room for 50. 

“Rosa Mexicano’s arrival to Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin is a truly exciting moment of our expansion. The opening reflects our founding chef Josefina Howard’s vision of introducing Mexican culinary traditions and authentic Mexican heritage to the world,” said Jim Dunn, CEO of Rosa Mexicano. “Once the restaurant opens, we will offer the Orlando market a fresh take on Mexican food, authentic Mexican heritage, culinary techniques and lively dining.”

Disney World Guests who have not had the privilege of experiencing this restaurant at its locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Maryland will be able to get their first taste at the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic on November 11 and November 12.

“Rosa Mexicano is the perfect partner to enhance our current dining options,” said Sean Verney, Area General Manager of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. “We pride ourselves on offering the best quality restaurant experiences for our hotel guests as well as local Orlando residents, and Rosa Mexicano delivers on that promise. We’re excited to be home to their first Florida location starting in early 2023.”
