  • EPCOT's Mexico boat ride needs to go COCO ASAP!

    I'm rewatching Coco and marveling at how great it looks--it's screaming out to be a dark ride,
    and with great music throughout the Three Caballeros could appear 2, 3 or 4 times in it.

    A Mexican dark ride? Are you suggesting Disney add the Cartels to it? An element of danger perhaps? I say it's fine, it's cute, it's whimsical. It's the perfect ride to rest your tired feet when walking around world showcase.

      That escalated quick.

      I agree. I can imagine it being a gorgeous boat ride too so the makeover just writes itself.
      The tv screens in this ride don't even try at all and we give Universal crap. This ride needs an update!
      Although, I'm not sure if this ride can handle a popular ride. They would have to do some serious reworking to fit a lot of people and a new queue that is already pretty limited in space.

      DCA would be great with this ride as well. Pixar Pier is screaming for a water ride & Latin culture is already very popular here in Cali so I can't see it being anything but popular.

          A Coco retheme of the Three Caballeros boat ride has been rumored before. In my opinion, it makes so much sense that I am shocked they have not done it yet. The ride is completely underutilized in that is regularly has much lower wait times and demand compared to the other attractions at Epcot, and this perfectly fits the "More Disney" idea Chapek is pushing.

            Let’s not forget WHERE the film Coco takes place. I’m not exactly keen with a Haunted Mansion ride for World Showcase. And as colourful as that film was (I did enjoy it) .... I’m not keen with this continued slippery slope of destroying originality, placemaking, adult feel, and cohesive themes in favor of more childish, randomising placed IPs. I wish Disney just threw their precious IPs into one new park .... and leave the eroding sophisticated feeling I loved about EPCOT, alone.

            Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

              I am not sure if you took the right message from the movie if you view it as similar to the Haunted Mansion. While death is obviously present within the film, family and Mexican culture are both more prominent and those are perfect themes for a Mexico pavilion ride.

                My only concern is I love being able to experience the different countries at the World Showcase and it worries me that the imagineers are starting to delete any thing that has to do with the actual culture of the an area just to add in and promote an animated film. It started with Frozen, a fun ride but there is no trace anymore of the culture of Norway anymore. I dont want the same thing to happen to Mexico. It's fine to add in characters but yes, update the cheap video monitors and really show how wonderful a country is.

                  I don't think you can really argue that Coco doesn't have a trace of Mexican culture lol
