This holiday season, guests of Epcot will get a taste of the magic and music of Disney-Pixar’s film “Coco,” which is now playing in theaters.
From now until January 6, 2018, El Mariachi Coco de Santa Cecilia, a new musical group inspired by the film, will entertain guests at the Mexico pavilion. Named for the town of Santa Cecilia seen in the film, El Mariachi Coco de Santa Cecilia perform songs from the movie, including the beautiful “Remember Me” and the heartwarming “The World Es Mi Familia.”
Later this season, Mexico Folk Art Gallery, which currently houses a spectacular collection of “Dia De Muertos” artwork, also will feature an interactive exhibit and festive dioramas showcasing scenes from the film.
In addition to this new musical experience, guests visiting the Mexico pavilion during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays can also enjoy “Las Posadas,” with its colorful dancers and performers from Mariachi Cobre celebrating the holiday customs of Mexico.
