Disney is honoring Hispanic Heritage Month with a spotlight on Epcot’s Mariachi Cobre. Many Epcot visitors enjoy seeing Mariachi Cobre each year as the band entertains those who travel through World Showcase. The music found at Disney World is truly one of the highlights of a Disney vacation. It’s fantastic to see the live musical talent of these iconic Disney entertainers!
Mariachi Cobre has been entertaining Walt Disney
World guests since 1982. Their voices and instruments are the reason so many enjoy seeing them entertain in the Mexico Pavilion. They perform warm melodies and world-famous folk music from Jalisco, Mexico. In addition to their traditional songs, the band also plays music from Pixar’s Coco in special seasonal offerings. The vibrant dancers and storytellers who accompany them enhance the experience for those who watch their show!
One of the long-standing members of the band, Esteban Carrillo, gives his story on the history of the 38 years of Mariachi Cobre.
You can attend Mariachi Cobre’s daily musical performances while visiting Epcot. The group performs several times per day at the America Gardens Theater in World Showcase.
