Have you ever wished you could dine in a Coco-themed restaurant? Well, here’s your chance! Disney is opening a Coco restaurant! Fuente Del Oro will become Casa de Coco – Restaurant de Familia.

The Mexican-themed restaurant Fuente Del Oro in Frontierland will also transform into Casa de Coco – Restaurante de Familia. We’re un poco loco for this reimagining, which features Miguel’s passion for music and love for his family.

From Héctor Rivera’s guitar to the many tools used to make traditional shoes, Miguel’s family heritage is showcased everywhere in the restaurant. Let’s take a look at five unique items you’ll discover at this “Coco” inspired restaurant!

In la Sala de Familia, portraits of beloved family members are front and center, both honoring them and ensuring their stories live on. The room also displays the trade that brought this family together: shoemaking!

Traditional woven fabrics, shoemaker’s tools and shoe boxes featuring the family brand proudly showcase the craftsmanship and expertise of the Riveras inherited from Mamá Imelda and the generations that followed.

Alebrijes are another Mexican art form that inspired both Pixar artists and Imagineers. Towering above, a huge carved and colorful alebrije reminiscent of Dante, playfully stretches to either side of the counter!

Once you step out on the terrace, a familiar face will welcome you! Dressed in traditional mariachi charro, Miguel is standing proudly as a life-size bronze statue. You might recognize some familiar tunes from traditional Mexican songs to the unforgettable “Remember Me.”

As you continue your journey and enter the patio, just look above to see the colorful papel picados! This Mexican tradition inspired Pixar artists to use papel picados as a way to introduce us to the past of the Rivera family in the movie’s opening scene.

For the restaurant, nearly 200 papel picados were created by Imagineers who found inspiration for the motifs in Mexican folklore, music and floral elements!

In la Sala de Música, the crown jewel of Miguel’s rediscovered family’s heritage is proudly displayed among many musical instruments. Héctor’s guitar takes a place of pride, and towards the back of the room, you can also read notes from pages of his diary!

Changing the theme doesn't change the nasty quick service food in MK. Full service in MK is extremely overpriced and mediocre at best . Live here.
