Hola Amigos! It is I Anonymouse back with some Disney World Gossip.

The new trailer for Coco, Pixar’s next original film, was released just a few days ago and it inspired me for today’s post. The word around the Disney water coolers is that the Mexico Pavilion is going to be seeing some changes. It is looking like the Imagineers have their eyes on retheming the Grand Fiesta Tour attraction to a Coco based ride. It is unclear at this time if this will be a simple overlay or full re-imagining, but I am hearing that there is a target of mid-2020 for its debut.

Of course this is all dependent on how the movie does when released on November 22, 2017. Now that IPs are now longer off limits in EPCOT’s World Showcase (I’m looking at you Frozen Sisters) it’s not hard to believe that Disney is looking to make some changes. The Three Caballeros have starred in this attraction since 2007 but it rarely sees wait times over 20 minutes. After seeing the popularity shift in Norway, I’m sure Disney has the same high hopes for Mexico.

Coco Story line : Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself magically transported to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

Fun Fact : Did you know that only one of the Three Caballeros is actually from Mexico?
