It’s no secret the world loves Encanto. The Walt Disney Animation Studios film took home the Academy Award for best animated feature and we’ve been singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” for months. Now, you can experience the film in a whole new way at Disneyland.
Starting Apr. 11, the façade of “it’s a small world” will be transformed multiple times each evening with the sights and sounds of Encanto (yes, you can breathe easy now––the iconic ride’s interior will remain in tact). The short montage is an homage to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and includes music, projections and lighting effects. If you’ve ever visited Disneyland during the holidays, the show will be much like the Christmas-themed experience that projects onto the iconic ride.
Guests will be treated to “tiles” that flip, turn and rearrange as each scene populates––just like the Casita in the movie! The show will end with a chorus and includes references to Bruno’s prophecy about Mirabel.
While you wait for the nighttime production, there is plenty of Mirabel magic you can enjoy during the day. You can catch up with the Madrigal family member at her station by Frontierland’s Zocalo Park. She’s in front of the perfect colorful spot for a photo opp that includes gorgeous artwork of the entire family.
And finally, Apr. 22 is quickly approaching––a day we have all been waiting for because the Main Street Electrical Parade is returning! Not only are guests elated at the prospect of hearing the iconic music and watching the thousands of lights, but they’ll also be treated to a new addition.
Celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary, the parade will have a new grand finale float that incorporates over 12 Disney and Pixar stories that most definitely includes Encanto. You’ll soon be able to see a new rendering of the Casita, the Miracle Candle, butterflies, Mirabel and cousin Antonio.
