The Donald Duck meet and greet can be found inside the temple.

People are worried about Epcot and TDO "selling out" to IPs, and yet here's a group of musicians who have committed the ultimate "sell-out" to a Disney IP... El Mariachi Coco de Santa Cecilia And they're pretty good at what they do. I enjoyed their music. But I can't believe they were a group before WDW put them on stage... can someone confirm my suspicion that they're a WDW pick-up band?

You know this information exists on instead of having to type long messages that Steve needs to answer and tend to start swirls/rumors. Also, *you're

We can't have two Coco's... Kruger wouldn't stand for it.

He meant its a different group and does not effect Mariachi Cobre. Both are performing.

...RIGHT, he was asking if the Mariachi Cobre (the original group) would still be playing, or as I am asking...have they been replaced? If they've been replaced it would be horribly ironic since the "YOUR BACK" featuring the Mariachi Cobre runs more than any other commercial here in SW Florida. I've loved and gotten to know the members (many are family and/or close friends of each other) since Epcot opened and LOVE their music, so it would be very horrible (and crass considering the commercials Disney is running) if they've been replaced. It would be nice if they got the holidays off (assuming they want that).

This is the first thing I thought of when I looked at that picture.

No, its a different group.

Will this impact the number of performances by the Mariachi Cobre?
