Who doesn’t love “Coco”? We fell in love with this fan-favorite film ever since Disney and Pixar released it a couple of years back, and we have been so excited to see “Coco” performances throughout Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort ever since! This fall, guests at Disney California Adventure can enjoy A Musical Celebration of Coco all season long.
A Musical Celebration of Coco takes place daily at Plaza de la Familia, a limited-time festivity in Paradise Gardens in Disney California Adventure. The “Coco” performance features live music and dancing, as well as the Grammy winners Mariachi Divas! And of course, a musical performance celebrating “Coco” would not be complete without an appearance from the star of the film, Miguel!
Miguel has to be one of our favorite characters to encounter at the Disney Parks. He is just as joyful and energetic as he is in the film, and we love seeing him dance and sing along with guests of all ages as part of the live musical performance celebrating “Coco” and Dia de los Muertos.
The spirit and energy of A Musical Celebration of Coco truly is contagious, and guests can’t help but sing and dance along to their favorite songs from the movie. The live music is beautiful and the performers capture the spirit of Dia de los Muertos so well. Just take a look at the full performance in our video below:
For the first time ever, guests at Disney California Adventure can actually meet and greet Miguel himself at Plaza de la Familia every day after the live performances of the show! This is such a special experience for kids and kids at heart, as well as anyone who loves the film.
Additionally, there are several activities that guests can take part in as part of the Dia de los Muertos celebrations. You can take commemorative photos in front of the Tree of Life, or Arbol de la Vida, as well as add a loving note on the Memory Wall to honor your loved ones. Guests can also design their own paper spirit guides, or alebrijes, that look just like Pepita and Dante from the movie!
We had a blast watching A Musical Celebration of Coco in person at Disney California Adventure, and we know that this special performance is something that all guests at the Disneyland Resort will love to experience themselves.
