First Look: Mariachi Cobre Presents the Story of Coco!

On Wednesday, March 6, the opening day of this year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Epcot’s Mexico pavilion debuted a new show featuring perennial favorites, Mariachi Cobre.

Mariachi Cobre Presents The Story of Coco is a retelling of the story of 2017’s engaging film “Coco,” which follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel as he is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, seeking his deceased great-great-grandfather.

  1. Is this program going to be there for the entire Flower and Garden show? We will be going the first weekend of June. My almost three-year old niece loves Coco and the music from the movie. She would love to see this program.
