REVIEW: The El Capitan Theatre delivers unmatched engagement of Disney-Pixar’s latest COCO

Now through December 10 you can experience Disney-Pixar’s AMAZING new COCO at the El Capitan Theater with a slew of extras that go above and beyond what you’ll find at your local mall. As always is presented in brilliant Dolby Vision Laser Projection & Dolby Atmos Sound Technology but beyond that, your movie ticket gets you the adorable Olaf character live appearance. And if you go through November 26 you’ll also get a super extra 30 minute pre-show set with the MARIACHI DIVAS and BALLET FOLKLORICO LOS ANGELES.

We were invited to check it out this week and decided that we had to share this with our family so we bought up some extra tickets to experience it with the whole family. Having grown up in a Mexican household, I connected quite personally to the film. It just speaks to so many levels of emotions but at the end of the day is universally about FAMILY. It’s so DISNEY and yet framed from such an unexpectedly honest and heartfelt way that it doesn’t feel hamfisted and heavy handed. That it’s so beautiful is just the start of it. Moreso than with UP, I balled my eyes out.

COCO is an absolute treasure and the El Capitan Theatre always delivers on being the ultimate way to enjoy a Disney feature.

Olaf Live on Stage

Nationwide screenings of COCO include the extended short, OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE but beyond that the El Capitan is also throwing in a fun little appearance before the presentation with the adorable snowman dancing to his popular little solo number from FROZEN. It’s obviously adorable but I really wish we could have seen Miguel on that stage with his guitar just having a grand old time up there.

Limited Appearances

Now through November 26, you can see the Grammy Award Winning MARIACHI DIVAS — as seen at Disneyland — live on stage with BALLET FOLKLORICO LOS ANGELES. The Divas performed at our wedding in 2015 so obviously this held even more of a special meaning for our family.
