Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural / 3D / spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join us as we stop outside the Mexico Pavilion and learn about the Christmas Traditions in Mexico on our way to the back of World Showcase.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
I’m so excited to be reliving these new adventures in Walt Disney World. The audio quality out of these new microphones is so good, and I feel like it places me right back in the parks. It really makes me want to go back and get away from all this ice and cold we have in Kentucky right now. So I’m going to be closing my eyes and joining you all in Epcot today also. Let’s go!
I have been telling the kids about these special holiday storytellers in Epcot, and I was so excited to have them experience these amazing artists in person. On our previous holiday trip, the Three Kings stood out front of the pyramid and shared the story, but this is different with the Mariachi Cobre. I think it’s so cool with the music they share, and the dancers that bring the stories to life. This will be one of my favorite Holiday Storytellers we will see during our visit to Epcot this week.
So we’re continuing our adventures in Epcot on a beautiful Sunday morning in December of 2021. The sun is warm, and the sky is mostly clear. It’s a perfect Florida winter day!
If you remember from Memory 268, we made our way from the front gate through the construction walled corridor and were approaching the World Showcase Promenade. We’ll join in as we are walking up to the Christmas Tree and admire the decorations before we turn left and enter into the Mexico Pavillion. As we approach the pyramid on our left, we begin to hear music that is definitely live. And as we continue forward just beyond La Hacienda de San Angel on our right, we stumble upon Mariachi Cobre playing and singing and sharing the story of Las Posadas in Mexico. We’ll stop, get a nice spot to watch (in the very warm sun), and enjoy their offerings. Mariachi Cobre is in the shade of the little market area, and these two amazing dancers dressed in colorful costumes move around in front and bring the stories and music to life. As the show is wrapping, and since this wasn’t in the plan, I’ll reoptimize my touring plan on the lines app again, and we’ll change our first attraction to something the kids have not done before. The good part is, we’ll get to enjoy some of the sounds of the promenade as we make our way towards our next destination to finish out our memory.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family as we experience some Epcot Festival of the Holidays magic with Mariachi Cobre.
