We previously shared the big news that Disney and Pixar’s Coco is joining the fun over at Mickey’s PhilharMagic! The classic Disney Park attraction is getting a new “Coco” scene featuring one of our favorite songs on the Coco soundtrack, “Un Poco Loco.” Now, an update is coming out of Disney Parks! Disney has revealed the Coco scene debut date at Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s PhilharMagic attraction is coming soon. While it will not be ready in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary on October 1, 2021, we are excited to have a date to put on the calendar!
Disney previously noted: “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.”
So, when is this new Coco scene going to be ready to take center stage? Disney Parks took to Twitter to share: “Just Announced: You will be able to see the “Un Poco Loco” scene from “Coco” in Mickey’s PhilharMagic in Magic Kingdom Park starting Nov. 12!”
If you’re a huge fan of Mickey’s PhilharMagic and don’t want to see it change, have no fear! Disney has said Guests will enjoy this new scene alongside all of the show’s current fan-favorite musical numbers. We simply can’t wait to see how Donald Duck handles this new scene as he searches for Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat – but we’re sure it will be as troublesome as always! Get ready to sing your heart out to “Un Poco Loco” from Disney’s Coco! November 12 is the big day!
