This week, Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to learn that the story and vibrant music of Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” is coming to the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, courtesy of the incomparable Mariachi Cobre – beginning March 6!

The musicians of Mariachi Cobre will be joined by a pair of Folklórico dancers to tell the tale of Miguel Rivera, his love of music, and his journey to find what matters most – his familia. The dancers will perform to the music of the film, pulling everyone into the celebration, and Miguel himself appears in the form of a whimsical, hand-crafted puppet.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (center-left) and wide receiver Julian Edelman (center-right) celebrated their Super Bowl LIII victory Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The star duo met another super pair – Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse – in front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park surrounded by cheering fans.

Also, the Super Bowl celebration made its way from Atlanta to Walt Disney World Resort this week when New England Patriots stars Tom Brady and Julian Edelman took part in a magical parade at Magic Kingdom Park.

Brady and Edelman cruised down Main Street U.S.A., atop a colorful float, interacted with beloved Disney characters and created memories that will last a lifetime. If you missed our special #DisneyParksLIVE stream, you can still watch the replay:
