A seasonal celebration for Dia de los Muertos is back at Disney California Adventure: Plaza de la Familia! From September 3 – November 2, 2021, this event offers live music and entertainment, interactive activities, and special decorations.
These elements and more will come together “to celebrate the everlasting bonds of family and the spirit of the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead.”
A Musical Celebration of ‘Coco’
Don’t miss the Storytellers of the Plaza de la Familia as they present A Musical Celebration of Coco! Enjoy the story of Disney and Pixar’s Coco through live performances of songs from the film and folklórico dancers in authentic costumes.
The Mariachi Divas are part of the show which takes place several times throughout the day.
And even Miguel joins in the storytelling, as he appears as a “hand-animated dimensional figure” to delight guests during the performance!
A special Mexican menu will once again be featured at Paradise Garden Grill!
Look for tacos, tamales, and a specialty dessert, as well as a hibiscus-flavored Jamaica slush and Mexican Hot Chocolate in a souvenir mug.
Artwork and Activities
Don’t forget to take your picture with Miguel by a mural named “Recuérdame” (“Remember Me”)!
Additional photo opportunities are available at the Mexican Tree of Life, or “Árbol de la Vida,” a beautiful piece inspired by Mexican folk art pottery.
Guests can also create a paper alebrije (spirit guide) mask of Pepita or Dante from Coco!
Guests may also take a moment to honor and remember family and friends in their lives who have passed away by leaving a note on the Memory Wall.
It’s all taking place from September 3 – November 2, 2021 along with Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort!
