THEME PARKS

To kick off this celebration, Los Amigos Invisibles will perform Sept. 16 and 17 at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE. The popular band from Venezuela will bring all the disco, funk, jazz, and Latin rhythm we love and adore.

Over at Magic Kingdom Park, the fiesta includes the “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade”­­­­ featuring Mirabel from Disney’s “Encanto,” Miguel from Disney and Pixar’s “Coco,” and other friends. This super-sized procession of characters winds its way through the park multiple times each day .

Music lovers should be sure to check out Mickey’s PhilharMagic at Magic Kingdom Park, which features a performance of the song “Un Poco Loco” from Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” and an animated scene based on the movie. At EPCOT you can hear the warm melodies of Mariachi Cobre and their world-famous traditional music from Jalisco, Mexico. And you can dance the day away at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with the Viva Gaia Street Band’s Caribbean-Latin rhythms.

If you admire Hispanic and Latin-American art, the Mexico Pavilion Folk Art Gallery at EPCOT is where you can honor El Día de los Muertos with a beautiful art exhibit created by prominent Mexican artists.
