Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” recently won the Academy Award for best animated feature at this year’s Oscars, and a new sing-along version of the film is streaming on Disney+! And soon, you can gather with your family and friends this spring at Disneyland park to celebrate the joy and wonder of Disney Animation’s newest instant classic, “Encanto.”
For a limited time beginning April 11, the iconic façade of “it’s a small world” becomes enchanted several times each evening with a brief visual montage that pays tribute to the movie’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” This musical delight comes to life through projection and lighting effects and an artistic style inspired by the lyrics, with select moments that feature characters from the film. Like the Madrigal family’s Casita, tiles across the “it’s a small world” façade flip, turn, and rearrange themselves as one scene transitions to the next, culminating in a celebratory chorus and a nod to Bruno’s mysterious prophecy about Mirabel.
During the day, you can also visit with Mirabel, the young hero from the film, at Frontierland’s Zocalo Park in a colorful photo location that pays homage to the Madrigal family from Colombia.
And coming April 22, “Main Street Electrical Parade” returns to Disneyland park and celebrates its 50th anniversary with a spectacular, new grand finale float that brings together stylized scenes from more than a dozen Disney and Pixar stories, including “Encanto.” Sparkling lights depict the Casita, magical butterflies, and Miracle Candle from the film, with Mirabel and her cousin Antonio represented as animated dolls atop their section of the float.
These experiences will be available for a limited time at Disneyland park, so what are you waiting for? Let’s go! Let’s go!
