If you are looking for a special, inspiring experience at the Disneyland Resort, look no further than Plaza de la Familia at Disney California Adventure park. This limited-time celebration honors the beloved Pixar film, “Coco,” and the everlasting bonds of family with live entertainment, arts and crafts activities and food!
Here’s what’s in store for your visit:
“A Musical Celebration of Coco” – A cast of storytellers entertain guests with beloved songs from the film performed by singing host Mateo and the Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Divas. Get transported to the land of the dead with appearances of authentic folklórico dancers and townspeople from “Coco” joined by the adventurous Miguel, who is brought to life in a whimsical style inspired by Mexican folk art!
Árbol de la Vida – The iconic Árbol de la Vida—or Tree of Life—is an iconic photo location where you can write down an emotional thought for your loved ones to display on the nearby wall of memories.
Photo Memories – New this year, take photos with Miguel when he appears between shows at a beautiful artistic mural entitled “Recuérdame” (“Remember Me”). Named after the iconic song from the film, the evocative mural depicts the themes touched on by the Storytellers of Plaza de la Familia in their show, and celebrates Miguel’s beloved family in Santa Cecilia and the Land of the Dead.
Food and Beverages – At Paradise Garden Grill, sample traditional Mexican dishes and sweets—from tacos, tamales and decadent desserts to Mexican hot chocolate and refreshing drinks. The delicious flavors make for a delightful feast!
There’s just two weeks left to celebrate the everlasting bonds of family at Plaza de la Familia. Join us now through Nov. 3 at the Disneyland Resort!
