Inside of Mexico, we found that one of the interactive “Coco” kiosks has returned. You can now create your very own “Coco” character once again! Unfortunately, the other kiosk is still blocked off and unresponsive.

Inside Morocco, we see the return of tables and chairs throughout the recently refurbished courtyard. This way, you can relax in the shade and maybe even grab yourself a treat at The Tangierine Café, which officially reopens tomorrow as part of the festival.

Deeper into Morocco, we found that Restaurant Marrakesh has placed its menu out front, even though the restaurant has not yet reopened. We also found wet paint signs in the area.
