Coco fans will rejoice this fall, as Disney California Adventure — specifically Paradise Gardens Park — will celebrate Plaza de la Familia once again!
Guests will witness heartfelt performances and feast on authentic Mexican dishes as Disney celebrates Dia de los Muertos with live entertainment and interactive experiences with Miguel himself at the Disneyland Resort.
Per a press release from Disney:
Plaza de la Familia adds to the fun with an immersive, limited-time celebration at Disney California Adventure inspired by the tradition of Dia de los Muertos. Guests will enjoy a spirited extravaganza, including live entertainment, delicious food, interactive experiences and special merchandise.
Guests will experience the return of Plaza de la Familia in Paradise Gardens from Sept. 3-Nov. 2, 2021. This immersive limited-time celebration honors the spirit of Dia de los Muertos, with entertainment, festive foods, crafts and interactive experiences. Among the activities to enjoy are “A Musical Celebration of Coco,” an entertaining street show honoring Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” and the everlasting bonds of family. Guests at this seasonal festivity also will be treated to Mariachi music at Paradise Gardens Bandstand; The World of Coco, an evocative art exhibit; a photo opportunity with a hand-animated figure of Miguel from “Coco” as well as the iconic Arbol de la Vida (Tree of Life) photo location and memory wall.
With this announcement, we can speculate that the amazing Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Divas will return and the popular Coco souvenir mug will be available to purchase once again!
This annual event couldn’t take place last year due to the pandemic-related closure of the Disneyland Resort, but we are happy that it is returning in 2021. Want to know more details about this specific celebration? The official Disney website shared:
