Animatronics On The Three Caballeros Replaced With Cutouts
It’s been a saga Disney friends. Ever since The Three Caballeros reopened after the COVID-19 shutdown there has seemingly been one problem after another! Animatronics have stopped work, face-planted mid-scene, have been missing, replaced with a plant, this list goes on and on! If you need a refresher on the saga of Donald, Panchito and Jose, here’s this awesome video from our friend Nick at MagicalNewsLive who happened to be at the right place at the right time:

And just when you think we couldn’t possibly top that, we have! We’re back at EPCOT today where the Three Caballeros have been replaced with…..Wait for it… CARDBOARD CUTOUTS!
During the scene where there had previously been all of the mechanical issues the three animatronic figures have been removed.
And as you can see from these images they have not been replaced with cutouts of each of the figures.
There is no longer any animatronics involved in the scene.
Though we are glad to see an alternative other than a potted plant, though who love this attraction will notice that this scene is a bit flat. Here’s a video we took;
As of going to print, there is no word yet on whether Disney hopes replace the figure or on the future of Grand Fiesta Tour in general. There has been much speculation over the years that EPCOT will go the Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure route with the Three Caballeros making the shift to a dark ride centered around Pixar’s Coco. Nothing official has been mentioned by Disney at this time.
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely. Readers are encouraged to keep checking back with us for further news and updates.
