Easter Eggs in Disney – Pixar’s Coco

Released in late 2017, Coco is one of the newest additions to the Disney Pixar family. Miguel, a curious and rebellious young boy, takes an accidental trip to The Land of the Dead to discover his family’s legacy. The journey lead him to an unexpected reality that centered around love, anger, death, music, and most importantly, family. The hilarious characters in this film (shout out to Hector!) paired with life lessons taught, make Coco a must-see for any Disney fan.

Another thing I love about this film is that there are plenty of hidden Easter Eggs throughout. Easter Eggs are objects or characters hidden throughout movies, that reference other Disney movies. Take a look through these gems found throughout Coco – I’m sure that some will surprise you!



1. A113 – Many Disney and Pixar animators studied at California’s Institute of the Arts. A113 was a classroom from Cal Arts that was also included in Coco. The Customs Office in the Land of the Dead is also labeled Room #A113. Coincidence? I think not!A113 hidden in Coco

2. Apple Computer – Steve Jobs was one of the founding fathers of Pixar. An old Apple computer was included in the Land of the Dead, to coincide with the rest of the outdated, or dead, technology.Old Macintosh hidden in Coco

3. John Ratzenberger’s voice – Ratzenberger’s voice is used in all Pixar films because it is believed to bring good luck. Ratzenberger was the voice of the Land of the Dead character Juan Ortodoncia.John Ratzenberger Hidden in Pixar's Coco
