Today, we’re celebrating the upcoming release of Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” film with a special edition of our exclusive Disney-inspired bento box tutorial series. This time, Disney Parks Blog reader and fan Mike Kravanis is at Disney Springs – right in the middle of our Coco Family Celebration – to show you how to wow your friends and family with a colorful Miguel bento box.

To create a Miguel bento box, start with a red pepper for the hood of Miguel’s sweatshirt and black beans for a background. Details of his face and hair are then made from a nori seaweed sheet. White American cheese and sesame seeds are also added to create his eyes and other details. Check out our video for detailed step-by-step instructions.

Try to make your own Miguel bento box this week and then go see Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” when it opens in theatres on November 22 in 3D.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more Disney-inspired bento box tutorials in upcoming weeks.
