Dia de Muertos is a two day celebration throughout Mexico, and by people of Mexican ancestry on November 1st and 2nd. The festivities are designed to honor and remember the beloved dead. From its ancient roots as an Aztec frestival, to a holiday that has spread around the world, Dia de Muertos is a time to focus on family.

The gallery exhibit is not only an appropriate display for this time of year in the Mexico Pavilion; but it ties in both scenes from the 'Gran Fiesta Tour' attraction housed within the Pyramid, and the upcoming Disney Pixar film "Coco."

The story of Coco follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery, and leading to an extraordinary family reunion. The idea for the tale was inspired by Dia de Muertos. Purchase your tickets in advance to Coco on Fandango. Coco opens everywhere November 22.
