Default Mexico in Epcot adds Music from Coco

And I also read that the music in France has been changed to include Beauty and The Beast. Makes sense to me, but I'm sure I'm probably in the minority in Mouse Owner world. Figure China will start rocking the Mulan soundtrack any day now

Interesting. Never heard of "coco." Even after reading your link I still have no idea what it is. So I'd probably not notice the difference. But I really enjoy the music all around Epcot (FW and WS).

Cheers.

I'd have to disagree with the earlier comment that Coco is one of Pixar's weaker outings. We're big fans in this household. You should check it out!

We are big fans of the movie as well. I think the movie is under appreciated by Disney fans. Ranks up there with UP in our family.

A look at my avatar should give you the idea on how we feel about Coco.

To me, it might be the best Pixar movie. It's certainly in the top 3 or 5. But I'm also in a minority that thinks the real popular Pixar movies are junk. Toy Story 1, 2, & 4 - meh. Incredibles 1 or 2 - completely uninteresting. Cars, especially 2 and 3 - snooze. I guess I like the movies that have the depth that the most popular ones don't. WALL-E, Inside Out, Coco, Up!, Brave - those are the true Pixar gems to me. Throw in Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo, and Monsters Inc. too. A Bug's Life is pretty underrated too.

I'm a little uncomfortable with this. As mentioned in the article, it seems as if Disney is going away from the cultural aspect of the countries and "Disney-fying" the Epcot countries. However, I'll admit that the "Beauty and the Beast" music that I heard on youtube from France seems in keeping with the France "vibe".

Just hearing the music makes me cry. Apple had a commercial that used it and the idea of grandma dying. I bawled every time it was on.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDeRyyDrS40 This is the full short film version. I thought the 30 second tv spot was actually more powerful because it was framed only around grandma's death. But you get the idea.

Yup and the ending gets you all dusty too, at least in my house anyway.

Just a personal opinion of course, and I'm glad you enjoy it. "One of Pixar's weaker offerings" is far from an insult or even a negative comment -- the competition is fierce! I have watched it once and enjoyed it, and perhaps I need to see it again. Most other Pixar movies I've watched multiple times.
