Not long ago, it was announced that Mickey’s PhilharMagic at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort will soon include a new scene featuring Disney and Pixar’s Coco!

Now, as we inch closer to the official debut of the new scene in Disney World’s version, a new permit has been filed for the location of the attraction.

For starters, in case you are not familiar, Mickey’s PhilharMagic is a classic attraction at both Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida and in Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. The incredible 3D adventure stars some of our favorite classic Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck as they get ready to put on an incredible orchestra. However, Donald decides to put on Mickey’s sorcerer hat and things get a little out of hand.

Donald ends up going through some of the most beloved Disney animated films as he finds himself stuck right in the middle of some Disney classic song scenes. These include “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast, “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” from The Lion King, “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, and more.

Now, as we mentioned earlier, Guests will be taken into a Pixar film for the first time ever as Mickey’s PhilharMagic at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort will soon include a new scene featuring Disney and Pixar’s Coco!

The new scene will take Guests into the iconic song, “Un Poco Loco”, and already debuted at Disneyland’s version on July 17. For those of you who are visiting Walt Disney World in the near future, the new version will debut later this year — in time for the 50th celebration, which will kick off on October 1.

Now, as we are less than one month away from the start of the 50th anniversary, Disney has filed a new permit for the location of Mickey’s PhilharMagic to provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction. Now, this could mean something as simple as repainting a small section of the building, but since we know Disney plans to update the show itself, they could also be thinking about redoing other aspects of the theater. This could mean fixing any seats that may be weathered, repainting certain aspects of the lobby or theater, or anything else that may need to be done that could help enhance the Guest experience once the new Coco scene debuts.

Walt Disney World describes this attraction as:

Put on your 3D “opera glasses” and take a seat in the Concert Hall in front of the 150-foot-wide, 180-degree seamless wraparound screen.

As the lights dim, we find Donald Duck fast asleep. When he dons Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat and decides to try his hand at conducting the concert, he’s suddenly plunged into a 3D dream world of classic Disney animated musical sequences.

Classic Songs

Experience “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast, “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” from The Lion King and “You Can Fly” from Peter Pan—plus many more—presented for the first time in stunning 3D.
