At Disney California Adventure Park, “Coco” is the heart of the theming of Plaza de Familia, a limited-time festivity at Paradise Gardens. Guests are invited to share memories of loved ones at the interactive Memory Wall. A limited edition photo opportunity will be set up around the Mexican Árbol de la Vida (Tree of Life) for guests to take photos and remember their visit by. A new mask-making craft that depicts an alejibre (spirit guide) from the film “Coco” will also be available. Guests will also be able to take in a beautiful art exhibit called The World of Coco while enjoying a live Mariachi band and delicious Mexican food from Paradise Gardens Grill.
In addition to the Mariachi band, guests can also enjoy the A Musical Celebration of Coco show. The show features the Storytellers of Plaza de la Familia and the Grammy-award winning Mariachi Divas for a festive show of music and dance that tells the incredible story of young Miguel’s journey as seen in “Coco.” New this year, this charming troupe of singers and authentic Folklórico dancers is joined by Miguel, brought to life in a whimsical, hand-crafted style inspired by traditional Mexican folk art.
The Día de los Muertos magic also extends to Cars Land. An ofrenda (a remembrance altar) will be on display that pays tribute to Doc Hudson (aka, the Fabulous Hudson Hornet). Look for it at Ramone’s House of Body Art, just down Route 66!
Over at Disneyland Park, Zócalo Park in Frontierland will be decked out with an elaborate and colorful display in honor of Día de los Muertos. This immersive setting features beautiful marigolds and papel picado throughout the installation, along with a traditional ofrenda, calaveras (sugar skulls), an iconic figure of La Catrina and delicious food at the nearby Rancho del Zócalo.
These Día de los Muertos experiences will be offered beginning September 7 and run until November 2, 2018 at the Disneyland Resort.
