On February 9th, 2023, visitors to EPCOT via The International Gateway entrance of the park happened upon an extraordinary sight. Mirabel from the fantastical and magical Madrigal family was seen laughing and taking photos. Enchanting all who were in her presence. Though we were surprised by the best way to get a glimpse of the Encanto star. Mirabel hasn’t been seen out and walking around among park-goers since that day last week.
Mirabel in Magic Kingdom Parade
Previously we had only seen her in the Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom. Where you can still spot her from time to time. There are rumors that she will be given a place in Animal Kingdom. We will have to wait and see what is in store for a more consistent meet-and-greet schedule.
Encanto Merchandise at Disney World
Where there is a great movie, there is even better merchandise! In shops all over Animal Kingdom, you can find play sets with figures of the Madrigal family, Mirabel, and Isabella plush dolls, and an adorable replica of the stuffed jaguar that Antonio was gifted at the beginning of the movie by his favorite cousin. Shirts with the entire family, including Bruno and Abuela, can be found throughout the resorts and parks.
Shop Disney Encanto Merchandise
If a trip to Walt Disney Word or Colombia isn’t in your plans for this year, fear not! You can have your miracle delivered to your door from the ShopDisney.com website. There you can find enough entertainment to last till your next vacation! From clothes for the kids, décor for the home, and even Mirabel’s accordion, there is something even more special for young people. There are Minnie Mouse Ears with Mirabel’s signature skirt as inspiration, the satin blue ears embroidered with florals, and the adorable pink butterfly on the front and back of the padded ears. ‘Magic Awaits You’ is beautifully embroidered on the side of the headband. Still, magic can also be seen in the brilliant Loungefly Casita mini backpack! The bright colors of the bag will always remind you of the enchanting movie it represents.
Dress up as Mirabel or Isabella
Suppose your young royal can’t stop talking about Tio Bruno, and they want to dress the part of a Madrigal Sister. In that case, you may want to check out the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Ages 3 to 12 can request the Disney ‘Encanto’ Package, giving you a choice between Mirabel’s classic look or Isabella’s purple flutter gown to compliment the traditional hair and makeup that the experience is known for.
Encanto Snacks at EPCOT
If dressing up doesn’t get you in the spirit, you should head to EPCOT for a taste of Colombia at Vibrante & Vivido: Encanto Cocina. This snack kiosk is exclusive to the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, but time is running out! The annual festival lasts until February 20th, 2023. If you want a taste of the Encanto paradise, find it via the My Disney Experience App. This is the second year an Encanto-themed booth has graced the festival, and its popularity keeps growing! Though the festival is ending soon, there is hope that the Flower and Garden Festival will continue to delight EPCOT guests with more food that even Julieta would be proud of.
