As EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts comes to a close, we are already looking ahead to EPCOT’s next event, the International Flower & Garden Festival, set to begin March 4. And out of everything we are looking to expect from the festival, from the elegant topiaries to the rocking concert series, it appears that we will see the return of a Pixar favorite: Mariachi Cobre Presents…The Story of Coco.

Originally introduced in 2019 and returning once again for a small Dia de Los Muertos celebration, The Story of Coco, is a unique puppet show that performs the songs from Pixar’s beloved musical from “Poco Loco” to “Remember Me.” Talented puppeteers, musicians and Folklorico dancers perform mariachi music and tell the story of Miguel Rivera and his journey to and from the land of the dead. Guests will see Miguel strumming his guitar and singing along (with the assistance of his puppeteer of course).

At this time, it is being widely reported that The Story of Coco will return this spring. However, while we hope to see Miguel return to EPCOT and the World Showcase, we are also waiting on official confirmation from Walt Disney World. We will update this article as soon as we get that confirmation.

There are few celebrations of Springtime that are as amazing as the EPCOT flower and garden festival. The Walt Disney World park becomes taken over by all things floral. Fabulous Disney-themed topiary sculptures are scattered throughout the park, guests can take walks through enchanted gardens and taste what the outdoor kitchens have to offer. Guests can also cut loose any day of the week during the festival’s Garden Rocks™ Concert Series.
