Lin-Manuel Miranda Approached Disney CEO Bob Chapek About Adding ‘Encanto’ Ride to Disney Parks

    In a wide-ranging interview with The Wrap, Lin-Manuel Miranda revealed that he has approached Disney CEO Bob Chapek with the idea of adding an Encanto-themed attraction to the Disney Parks. In the interview, Miranda specifically calls out The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at the Disneyland Resort as the type of ride he pictures when thinking about Encanto in the theme parks. Miranda said that he told Chapek “I know there’s a world in which this casita lives in a theme park and we get to actually walk through in real life”.

    Miranda says that he and Chapek didn’t talk specifics and that the world in which the characters from Encanto live in is still “early days”.

    Encanto has been an absolute hit for Disney with the soundtrack and even individual songs breaking records for the company. Disney has not publicly stated that anything for Encanto in the theme parks is in the works besides a single Mirabel meet and greet at Disney California Adventure.
