Fans of Encanto might not have to wait much longer to find the film represented in a more meaningful way in the Disney theme parks. Before we get into the recent comments, here’s a look at what’s offered for Encanto fans in the theme parks now:
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.”
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.
The “Main Street Electrical Parade” returned 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.
Now, here’s a look at recent comments from Christine McCarthy about expanding Encanto at the theme parks when talking about how the theme parks stay relevant year after year.
Something that’s not really in the parks, but that I think you will see soon is something like Encanto. What was really just wonderful in the music. Elements of that could be incorporated into the park experience. Some of it will be transitory, some of it will be more permanent. Certainly, when we put in a Marvel, or Avengers Campus, that’s more permanent. But we can do things with entertainment that really are relevant.
It has previously been rumored that Encanto will get a more permanent home in the old Tarzan Treehouse, but Disney has yet to confirm what the new theme for the location will be.
