Celebrate Family with the Opening of Pixar Coco

Disney•Pixar’s COCO is finally here and now playing in theaters everywhere! While I was in San Francisco back in August I only got to see 35 minutes of it but last night I got to see the entire film and it was more than amazing.

And playing before CoCo you’ll be able to see OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE. Both of these films are the perfect way to kick off the holiday season with the family!

Seeing Pixar Coco last night really opened my eyes about family being more important than anything else. Plus, I got a better understanding of the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos. When we got back from the trip we got the opportunity to create our Chatbooks to keep the memories alive over the years. When mine arrived I literally cried as it was the best memory book everywhere. I was able to go back and relive the trip with my Disney family over and over again. Chatbooks make a great gift and memory holder.
