...as well as esqueletos, an ofrenda, comida mexicana, storytelling, and interactive experiences like the Memory Wall, where you can leave a message in honor of a family member who has passed on.

You can also get your face-painted, design your own paper alebrije mask of Pepita (or Dante) and take pics with alebrije wings.

OR BOTH!

 

 

A Musical Celebration of Coco

But the can't-miss feature of Plaza de la Familia is A Musical Celebration of Coco, which is basically a live action version of the movie with folklórico dancers, life-size esqueleto puppets, and the Grammy-Award-winning Mariachi Divas.

During the show, a mariachi named Mateo leads you and marioneta-Miguel on a journey through the Land of the Dead as the Divas play all of your favorite songs from the film, including "Poco Loco", "The World Es Mi Familia", and Oscar-winner "Remember Me." (You're probably going to cry.)

here he is: the only boy i’d fly across the country to see. ???????????????? we watched all five performances of “a musical celebration of coco” on friday and it was just as magical as i’d imagined. the miguel puppet is a glorious work of art and amazing to see in action — there couldn’t be a better way to bring this character to life!!! i managed to get some videos from right up front (sitting on the floor!) and even caught him walking out for one of the shows. but most importantly... HE BLEW ME A KISS!!! ???????????? big thanks to my lovely friend @pixarfreak1 for capturing this life-changing moment in the last two photos. ???????????????? if you can get out to dca to see this show i highly recommend it with every fiber of my being, just make sure you get there at least half an hour early if not an hour if you want to be as close as i was ???????????? #aisuparks #aisuindisneyland #puppetpilgrimage2k18 #PixarCoco #plazadelafamilia #dca #disneyland

Cars Land

Cars Land also gets into the spirit at Ramone's House of Body Art.

 

 

Ramone has his very own ofrenda honoring his amigo, Doc Hudson.

 

 

Then the celebration continues at...

Zócalo Park

Disneyland's Zócalo Park in Frontierland will feature its traditional Día de los Muertos decor, complete with an ofrenda, caléndulas, papel picado, sugar skulls, and La Catrina.
