Pixar’s Coco joins Mexico Pavilion at Epcot with new musical performance

You may have heard that Disney has been looking for ways to introduce more elements from Pixar’s popular animated feature “Coco” into its Mexico pavilion at Epcot. The rumors range from pretty wild to mild.

Starting March 6, a new way of telling the “Coco” story will come to the Mexico pavilion, thanks to the talents of puppeteers, Folklorico dancers, and Mariachi Cobre. Together they will retell the tender story and play the vibrant music of Miguel and his family.

It looks like this might be an update to the Mariachi Cobre “Coco” themed set from last spring:

Mariachi Cobre will also continue its regular shows around the Mexico pavilion sharing their passion for traditional mariachi music with guests.

It sounds like this show might be just for Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival. So don’t wait too long to go see it.

The danger with all these improvements is you don’t want to get too far away from celebrating the culture of the country pavilion. This ‘Presenta’ looks like just the right level for Mexico. What do you think?
