Coco is a beloved movie by many and we are so excited that Disney keeps finding new ways to incorporate Coco into attractions at the parks.
Where to See Coco at Disney World
If you are a fan of Miguel or the Animated Film Coco, you will find various character interactions and experiences at Disney World.
Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom
This small parade features some of the most beloved Disney characters like the Toys from Toy Story, Bruno from Encanto and Miguel from Coco!
The parade starts in Frontierland and runs through to Main Street USA daily.
Mickey’s Philharmagic in Magic Kingdom
If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Philharmagic (the 4D film attraction) in Fantasyland, a new scene from Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” was added in 2021.
The scene features memorable characters along with a new musical number “Un Poco Loco.”
“Remember Me!” – La Celebración del Día de Muertos at EPCOT Mexico Pavilion
If you have seen Coco, you know the movie centers around Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration that involves showing respect to the ancestors who have crossed over.
At Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion, you will find Remember Me!’ La Celebración del Día de Muertos, various Coco souvenirs, and hopefully, one day, we will see a Coco ride.
Inside the Grand Mayan Pyramid, you will find beautiful authentic Mexican art along with interactive displays featuring characters from Coco.
At the center of the room are two displays. The largest is the Dia de los Muertos Bridal Couple who symbolize the love that remains long after death.
On the other side of the Bridal Couple is a Dia de los Muertos sculpture of a dog & cat which symbolizes the friendship and eternal love for our animals.
As you walk through the room, you will find different scenes from the movie Coco.
One is the beautiful Ofrenda scene where Miguel begins to learn about his ancestors.
Take your time to look at everything carefully as these pieces are beautifully done!
Make sure you don’t miss the interactive Mirror de los Muertos. If you look carefully, you may find yourself transported into the Land of the Dead!
If you are looking for Coco souvenirs, there are two places where you will find the best Coco souvenirs.
Panchito’s at Coronado Springs
This shop inside the Coronado Springs resort seems to have some of the best Coco souvenirs in Walt Disney World.
You will find Coco inspired Minnie ears, Loungfly bags and t-shirts.
Is there a Coco Ride at Epcot?
While there is not yet a Coco ride at EPCOT, our guess is that one will be coming.
Currently, the ride inside the Mayan pyramid is the Gran Fiesta Tour boat ride featuring the Three Caballeros.
This ride is outdated and is based mainly on scenes from South America, not Mexico.
A Coco ride would be a wonderful addition and once we hear something other than a rumor, we will let you know.
Mariachi Cobre Presents…the Story of Coco
Guests visiting the Mexico pavilion during the Flower and Garden Festival can also experience a musical puppet show featuring Miguel by Mariachi Cobre musicians & the Folklórico dancers.
The dancers perform to the music of the film (played by Mariachi Cobre), and Miguel himself appears in the form of a whimsical, hand-crafted puppet.
if you are someone who really wants to experience Coco at Disney World, make sure that you visit Magic Kingdom & EPCOT since those are the two parks where characters and experiences are most prevalent.
