Exciting news from Disney today! Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” is joining the fun over at Mickey’s PhilharMagic! This classic attraction is getting a new “Coco” scene, and we can’t wait to experience the music. Plus, we can’t wait to see how Donald Duck handles this new scene as he searches for Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat.
As shared by Disney: “The musical number “Un Poco Loco” will anchor the new scene when it opens to guests at Disney California Adventure park and Disneyland Paris on July 17, before being added to Magic Kingdom Park later this year during the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration. The film’s fun, upbeat music and characters combined with the humor of Donald Duck marks the first time Disney and Pixar animators have worked on a creative endeavor where characters from both animation studios will be seen together on screen. Because music is such an integral part of the show, we were also fortunate to tap one of the film’s original composers – the world-renowned Germaine Franco – to produce a “Coco” score unique to Mickey’s PhilharMagic.”
If you’re a die hard Mickey’s PhilharMagic fan and worried about this classic attraction changing, have no fear! Disney has said guests will enjoy this new scene alongside all of the show’s current fan-favorite musical numbers. We’ll keep you posted as Disney releases more information about this new addition!
