The story of Coco
Miguel, the protagonist, is a little boy who adores music. His family, on the other hand, outlawed music after his great-great grandpa abandoned his great-great grandmother to pursue a career as a musician.
Miguel chooses to pursue his passion for music on the Day of the Dead and sets out to play guitar like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Instead, he is miraculously transported to the vibrant and colorful Land of the Dead, where he embarks on a quest to fulfill his goals and resurrect his family’s history.

Disney Coco Party Games Ideas
La Gallinita Ciega
La Gallinita Ciega, or “the blind hen,” is a famous Mexican children’s game that is similar to blind man’s bluff. This game requires 2-3 youngsters to play, but the more the merrier.
To begin, blindfold the kids who will be “la gallinita ciega,” so that they are unable to see the other kids. Then you’ll give the little hen a few turns to make the game a little more difficult—the person who is “it” must blindfold himself and find and tag each player.
Other players may walk around and utilize their voices to give away their location, such as squawking like a chicken?
Mexican hat dance
This party game with a Mexican flavor is similar to passing the parcel, but with a twist! One sombrero is required, as well as someone to begin and end the music.
When the music begins to play, everyone begins to dance, and the sombrero is transferred from person to person by being placed on their heads. When the music stops, you must forfeit if you are wearing the sombrero.
Now, they can be anything crazy, such as a silly face or dance, but I prefer to use the foul-tasting jelly beans and fill a second hat with them. Their forfeit is to choose one without looking at it and eat it; after that is done, the game can resume.
