PHOTOS: Jose Carioca Audio-Animatronic Returns to Gran Fiesta Tour at the Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT

José Carioca has returned refreshed and refurbished after a very long siesta at the Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT. In a recent photo from Theme Park Alex, you can see the joyous green parrot back in his natural habitat—that is, playing on stage alongside Panchito and Donald.

Just over a week ago, the animatronic suffered an incident where it fell down in front of guest view. On July 21st, the same day it fell down, the Audio-Animatronic was hidden from sight by a display of flowers and sombreros before getting removed entirely. You can check out what it looked like aboard the Gran Fiesta Tour during Jose’s brief absence in our YouTube video below:
