Hey there! Are you ready to embrace the everlasting bonds of family and get a taste of Día de los Muertos? If so, grab the familia and an appetite because over at Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland's Plaza de la Familia is back!

From September 1 to November 2, 2023, you can experience a joyous celebration that brings to life the Disney and Pixar award-winning film, “Coco,” with music, entertainment, and, of course, food! Paradise Garden Grill, along with other locations at Disneyland Resort, will be serving up sweet and savory delights that will let you travel through your taste buds with cuisines inspired by some of the cultures that celebrate Día de los Muertos. With the new Chile Verde Chicken Flautas and return of the adorably delicious Horchata Cheesecake, and even some special “Coco”-inspired novelties like the Coco Souvenir Sipper, you're going to want to check out this exciting event.

After treating yourself to some bites, you can enjoy “A Musical Celebration of Coco” featuring a talented team of storytellers and the beloved music from the film. You can even meet Miguel himself! And don't forget to leave a message for your own loved ones on the Memory Wall at the Mexican Árbol de la Vida (Tree of Life).
