DSNYNewscast.com’s Jack Kendall already vlogged about the possibility of Coco coming to the Disney parks, but it seems that Disney snuck that IP in on July 4!
However, there have been no changes (yet) to the “Gran Fiesta Tour.” So where can we find Coco?
Back in November, Disney announced the new exhibit known as “Remember Me! La Celebración Del Dia de Muertos.” Most of the displays were installed by the first of the year, but the framed mirror-like video screens sat unused. Then, completely unannounced, the video screens came alive last week just in time for the 4th of July.
So, what is it and how does it work? Glad you asked as Ken has that covered:
[G]uests can design their own Dia de Muertos skeletons by selecting things like hairstyle, eyeglasses, eye color and skull designs. Then via a screen capture technology guests “become” the skeletons and can move the skeleton around on the screen via their own movements… The creations are saved via the Disney PhotoPass that is linked to a guest’s MagicBand. A MagicBand reader on the bottom of the kiosk links the designs to each guest’s account even before they begin their designs.
I had planned on spending a bit of time in the Mexico Pavillion during my upcoming trip, but I am definitely going to plan for a little longer of a stop.
What do you think? Should Coco take over the space as it’s primary IP?
Let us know down below.
