You can now take some of the furry friends introduced in two of Pixar’s most popular films both home with you and on the go, as Dante from “Coco” and Remy from “Ratatouille” were recently released as Park Pals at the Disneyland Resort.
Dante and Remy Park Pals
We found each of these Park Pals at Pooh Corner, a shop located near The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction in the Critter Country section of Disneyland Park. Disney Park Pals are small figures that serve as both collectibles and decorations; each Park Pal comes with a display stand but can also be clipped to a keychain, backpack, or anything of the sort.
Dante Park Pal – $11.99
The Dante Park Pal is covered in vivid shades of purple, blue, green, yellow, and orange and takes visual inspiration from Alebrijes, which are traditional Mexican sculptures that depict creatures in vibrant colors. Similar depictions of Dante have appeared in Disney Parks before, as a plush portraying Miguel’s dog as an Alebrije was released as part of the Disney Babies line in 2021.
The bright purple base is interrupted by sporadic blue dots. That shade of blue is replicated on Dante’s tongue and is complemented by a darker shade of the color on the figure’s right ear and around its multi-colored eyes. Bright blue wings with orange detailing emerge from the figure’s back.
As is the case with all Disney Park Pals, film-specific imagery appears on Dante’s packaging. Miguel’s guitar is printed on the card.
Remy Park Pal – $11.99
The chef who re-introduced Anton Ego to the wonder of food is also available in Park Pal-form. The gray figure has bright tan features and white whiskers, these attributes complemented by a detailed white chef’s hat sitting atop its head.
Remy sports a tail that matches his ears, hands, and feet in color. A cooking spoon appears on the back card as his unique packaging art.
Disney Park Pals
Disney launched the Park Pals line in 2019 with a figure of the Orange Bird that appears on the Sunshine Tree Terrace sign at Adventureland in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. The line has grown to include characters from several Disney produced and owned films such as “Cinderella,” “Pocahontas,” “Lilo & Stitch,” “The Lion King,” and even the “Star Wars” franchise. Additional Disney Parks icons like Figment and the three Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion attraction have also been included.
The line expanded to include “Park Pals Collectabuilds” in 2020. These particular figures cannot be clipped to things like belt loops or keychains but do include “surprise attraction vehicles” that serve as their stands. Series 1 included a Monorail train, Kilimanjaro Safari truck, Peter Pan’s Flight pirate ship, Disney Parks train, and the Space Mountain rocket ship, while Series 2 included Monorail Blue, Mr. Toad’s red car, a red and green train engine, and an Astro Orbiter ship.
