Pixar's 'Coco' Might Be Replacing 'The Gran Fiesta Tour' at EPCOT's Mexico Pavilion

Hola Amigos! It is I Anonymouse back with some Disney World Gossip.

The new trailer for Coco, Pixar’s next original film, was released just a few days ago and it inspired me for today’s post. The word around the Disney water coolers is that the Mexico Pavilion is going to be seeing some changes. It is looking like the Imagineers have their eyes on retheming the Grand Fiesta Tour attraction to a Coco based ride. It is unclear at this time if this will be a simple overlay or full re-imagining, but I am hearing that there is a target of mid-2020 for its debut.

Of course this is all dependent on how the movie does when released on November 22, 2017. Now that IPs are now longer off limits in EPCOT’s World Showcase (I’m looking at you Frozen Sisters) it’s not hard to believe that Disney is looking to make some changes. The Three Caballeros have starred in this attraction since 2007 but it rarely sees wait times over 20 minutes. After seeing the popularity shift in Norway, I’m sure Disney has the same high hopes for Mexico.
