With fall fast approaching, Disneyland announced new experiences coming to both parks to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. At Disney’s California Adventure park, “Coco” will be celebrated at the Plaza de la Familia. This limited-time festivity will be taking over the Paradise Gardens.
Over at the Memory Wall, families can use the interactive exhibit to make memories of their own. Or join your family in taking photos over at the beautiful Mexican Árbol de la Vida, or the Tree of Life, photo location. Children can also join in on a new mask-making craft to make their very own alejibre. Families can learn about the art of the Pixar film with The World of ‘Coco.’ The bandstand will be alight with mariachi music and you can find delicious Mexican treats over at the Paradise Gardens Grill.
Several times daily, the uplifting show A Musical Celebration of Coco tells the story of young Miguel’s journey as seen in “Coco.” It brings together the Storytellers of Plaza de la Familia and the Mariachi Divas for a festive show of music and dance. Miguel himself will be joining them. He makes his debut this year with the help of a hand-crafted style inspired by traditional Mexican folk art.
Over in Cars Land, an ofrenda, or a remembrance altar, will stand in tribute to Doc Hudson over by Ramone’s House of Body Art.
Over at Disneyland park, Frontierland will transform with Zócalo Park. This immersive setting features beautiful marigolds and papel picado throughout. A traditional ofrenda, calaveras or sugar skulls, and an iconic figure of La Catrina make this area even more beautiful. Nearby, Rancho del Zócalo will be serving traditional Mexican food.
These experiences celebrating Dia de los Muertos begin September 7th at the Disneyland Resort and continue through November 2nd, 2018.
