Coco-Inspired Show Coming to Epcot's Mexico Pavilion This Spring

This new entertainment offering will not be replacing the traditional Mariachi Cobre show

This new Coco-inspired show will be performed daily this spring, but if you are concerned about the future of the original Mariachi Cobre show, you don't need to worry as this group will continue to play traditional mariachi music several times throughout the day. Though there probably won't be as many showtimes for the older show, at least it is still being offered alongside this new option for right now, which is definitely good news for fans. 

This new show will probably be around for the foreseeable future

Though the opening of this show will coincide with the beginning of the Epcot International Flower and Garden festival, we anticipate this show will likely be sticking around the World Showcase for the foreseeable future as Disney continues to rebrand this part of Epcot as a hub for Disney characters. Of course, if the show proves to be unpopular Disney could pull it from the schedule early, but this would seem like an unlikely occurrence given the popularity of the Coco film and its natural integration in the Mexico pavilion. 

Though rumors about a Coco overlay for the boat ride in Mexico didn't ever come to fruition, it looks like this Pixar favorite is still growing its presence at Epcot, with the Remember Me exhibit in the pavilion gallery and this new show, opening in just a few weeks. And looking to the future, it has also been confirmed that Coco will be a big part of "A Celebration of Disney Music", opening next year. Though this may seem like overkill for this one film, Coco is one property that fits right in with Disney's new vision for the World Showcase, and we're not surprised to see it represented more around this park. However, what will be really interesting is to see how other pavilions change and add characters as Epcot continues to change in the coming years.
