UPDATE: Disney World has confirmed our rumor. Mirabel will be coming to Magic Kingdom this fall. Our original article continues below.
Disney World is looking to bring a Mirabel meet and greet to Magic Kingdom. As Disney continues to look toward the future of its theme parks, it will continue to infuse new IP to keep guest experiences relevant. One such plan is to bring Mirabel from Encanto to Magic Kingdom. The plan as it exists currently is to bring Mirabel to the Merida meet and greet across from Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. Disney has been trying to get Mirabel into a meet and greet space for some time, even planning on other locations such as the gazebo in Liberty Square. That plan was reportedly scrapped.
Mirabel has been spotted around Walt Disney World recently, but those meet and greets may be unrelated to the Magic Kingdom meet and greet area, which sources say will require some significant modifications to accommodate expected long queues. Work would take place this summer to transform the space for a Mirabel meet and greet debut later this year.
As with any rumor, you should treat this info as unofficial unless and until Disney confirms it.
