Get ready to embark on a dazzling culinary journey filled with vibrant Mexican flavors and heritage! Imagineers at the Downtown Disney District have conjured up three enchanting dining concepts – Paseo, Céntrico, and Tiendita – in collaboration with Michelin-starred Chef Carlos Gaytán and the Patina Restaurant Group.

Chef Gaytán, the first Mexican-born chef to earn the coveted Michelin star, is a true maestro of Mexican cuisine. His culinary skills have graced the kitchens of acclaimed restaurants and TV shows, including a thrilling appearance on BRAVO’s “Top Chef.” Now, he’s bringing his passion, expertise, and a touch of magic to Disneyland Resort!

“My love of cooking began with my family in Mexico,” Chef Gaytán explains. “Now, I get to share those traditions, those flavors, with all of you at Paseo, Céntrico, and Tiendita. It’s a dream come true to bring a bit of my homeland to this magical place.”

Embark on Three Unique Flavor Trails

  • Paseo: Prepare to be dazzled by Paseo’s enchanting ambiance! Lush details and rich textures transport you to the heart of Mexico. Chef Gaytán shares his most treasured recipes with a touch of modern elegance – exquisite dishes like cochinita pibil inspired by his mother, or the tender pulpo enamorado octopus. It’s fine dining with a soulful, Disney touch.
