Theme Park Offerings for Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month

Feel the Latin rhythm and dance to the beat at three of Walt Disney World's thrilling theme parks.

Magic Kingdom Park

  • Get excited, "Encanto" fans! As of Sept. 15, Mirabel now has a designated meet-and-greet location at Magic Kingdom! Guests can see this popular character at Fairytale Garden, located near Cinderella Castle (on the Tomorrowland side). Be sure to check out our guide to experiencing "Encanto" at Disney World!

Encanto at Disney World — Mirabel meet-and-greet at Magic Kingdom

  • Bruno from Disney's "Encanto," Elena of Avalor and Miguel from Disney and Pixar's "Coco" can be seen along with many other favorite characters in the "Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade," a super-sized procession that winds its way through Magic Kingdom multiple times each day.
  • Guests can also meet Princess Elena of Avalor at Princess Fairytale Hall, a character heavily influenced by Latin culture!
  • Party with Miguel and Hector from "Coco" in the Land of the Dead at Mickey's PhilharMagic. A new addition to the attraction features a performance of the upbeat song "Un Poco Loco" in an animated scene based on the movie!

And don't fret if you're not able to visit during Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month, as all the offerings listed above for Magic Kingdom are available year-round!

Resort Offerings for Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month

Frogs staying on-site at Disney Resort Hotels can end their days with "Movies Under The Stars."  During the celebration, guests can expect to see movies that highlight Hispanic culture, such as "Encanto," "Coco" and "Elena and the Secret of Avalor."

Last year, there were even exclusive #TogetherWeAreMagia backdrops inside many of the Resort lobbies and public spaces. We hope these photo-ops return in 2023!

Disney Springs Offerings for Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month

Over at Disney Springs, jam out to live entertainment with Hispanic and Latin American artists such as Miércoles Mágicos and Drey-C. Check out vibrant murals at Disney Springs Art Walk: A Canvas of Expression. Be on the lookout for Hispanic and Latin American artists including Nani Chacon, Ernesto Maranje and Eduardo Kobra. Plus, guests visiting in September may see Miami-based Cuban couple, TRATOS, live paint!
