We can’t keep this news under Mickey’s sorcerer hat much longer. Fans of “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” will soon be tapping to a new song with the debut of an animated scene based on Disney and Pixar’s “Coco.” 

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.”

Guests will enjoy this new scene alongside all of the show’s current fan-favorite musical numbers. Now it’s time to put on those opera glasses and let the show begin!

Comments

  • For the folks commenting that “Ralph Breaks the Internet” was the first time Disney and Pixar characters were together onscreen… wasn’t that a Disney film and not a Pixar film? Oh wait- Merida with the Disney princesses- I understand now! 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing this!

  • ohh really

  • Wasn’t Nemo in Brother Bear (2003)?

  • Sounds amazing! Love this movie so much. Hope Disney finds more ways to incorporate Coco into the parks!

  • Very excited for this update!

    Just one thing. The first time Pixar and Disney characters shared a screen together was “Ralph Breaks the Internet”

  • Very excited for this update!

    But it’s not the first time Pixar and Disney characters shared a screen together. That honor goes to “Ralph Breaks the Internet”

  • Hey just curious why is the Hall of Presidents still closed and when do you expect it to re-open? Seems very long for a closure since it just had a major refub…

  • This sounds great, and I look forward to it!

    Not to be picky, but didn’t the “the first time … characters from both animation studios will be seen together on screen”happen already? I’m thinking of the princess slumber party scene of “Ralph Breaks the Internet”

  • About time they updated this attraction! I wonder where it’s going to be placed? Maybe between Lion King and Peter Pan?
