In celebration of the 66th anniversary of Disneyland we stopped by the resort to see the updated Mickey’s PhilharMagic at Disney California Adventure, which now features a scene based on Disney-Pixar’s Coco.
- Alex got to check out the reopened Mickey’s PhilharMagic with the new scene based on Coco today.
- The scene appears between The Lion King and Peter Pan segments of the show. It transitions from The Lion King into a marigold, signifying the start of the Coco scene.
- From there, the camera pans down to the City of the Dead, where Miguel and Hector are on the back of a skyway cable car singing “Un Poco Loco” and it follows them down to ground level.
- Pepita and Dante as an alebrije fly into the shot and Donald is poofed onto Pepita’s back. He looks confused about how he got there.
- The hat ends up in Dante’s mouth and he gives Donald a chase. Donald gets on his back and Dante flies him up into the clouds.
- We then cuts to the Peter Pan sequence and Donald and the hat fall onto the clock face of Big Ben where Peter Pan and Tinker Bell just landed.
- Aside from the show itself, Cast Members are wearing a marigold (as seen above) to signify the new addition to the show.
