Miguel from PIXAR’s “Coco” is coming to Magic Kingdom (along with some other Disney pals we haven’t seen in a while)

A new character is coming to Magic Kingdom, and others are returning–some we don’t see very often at any of the Disney World theme parks (especially since Fantasmic! has been gone). These beloved characters will only add to the Most Magical Celebration on Earth, honoring the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World’s opening! Let’s get to it!

Some of our favorite characters–many that we don’t see very often, especially at Magic Kingdom–will be making daily appearances at the park where it all began!

Beginning on February 11, a brand-new cavalcade of characters is coming to Magic Kingdom. The all-new “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade” will see nearly 30 beloved Disney and PIXAR characters to the forecourt at Cinderella Castle, including Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from Disney’s Zootopia, Baloo and King Louie from Disney’s The Jungle Book, Jose Carioca and Panchito from Disney’s The Three Caballeros, as well as Merida, Moana, The Incredibles, Woody and Jessie, Aladdin and Genie, Marie from Disney’s The Aristocats, and more!

And guess which character is making his Magic Kingdom debut?

It’s Miguel from PIXAR’s Coco, dressed in his traditional mariachi best! It will be Miguel’s very first time to appear at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, and what a great addition he’ll make to all the magic of the Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration festivities!

When Disney World’s Most Magical Celebration began on October 1, we were told that Disney would continue to add more excitement and more surprises to the celebration, which lasts for 18 full months–all the way through March 31, 2023! We are so excited about the new characters who’ll be part of exciting new entertainment offerings at Magic Kingdom, and we can’t wait to see what else Disney has in store for the World’s Most Magical Celebration!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
