Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.
When Miguel initially turns ghostly after strumming the guitar in the mausoleum, he runs into the graveyard in a panic, and the frenzied musical score that plays behind the action is the crescendo from "A Day in the Life" by The Beatles
A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
When Miguel returns to the Land of the Living at sunrise, the doors to Ernesto's tomb are sitting open to allow him out, despite the fact that they were closed and locked earlier in the film. The guitar being on the floor proves that no one entered while Miguel was gone - otherwise, they would have returned it to its spot on the wall.
At the end of the closing credits, there is an ofrenda to the deceased people who inspired the filmmakers of Coco, in the form of a mosaic made from photographs.
