The end of January marks our second Wonder Wednesday celebration which will feature the Academy Award winning Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “Encanto”! Throughout the month of February, celebrate the power of love and family through some awe-inspiring offerings across parks, products and games. See below for more!

To start, we’ve put together a short list of our favorite fantastical and magical products for those looking to join in the celebration of the Wonder of “Encanto”:

There’s no better way to celebrate your love for all things “Encanto” than with a little music! With the Disney Encanto House Music Box you can play and sing-along to your favorite tunes from the film, including “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” “Surface Pressure,” and “The Family Madrigal.” Continue the sing-along with Mirabel’s Musical Accordion, available on shopDisney, which expands and contracts just like a real one. And what would an “Encanto” celebration be without a little magic? The brand-new Disney Encanto Candle by Luminara is a replica of the Miracle Candle featured in the film, with a detailed butterfly hand-carved design. Its color-changing feature will bring magical warmth to any room in your own casita!

But we need the magical familia Madrigal! Fans of Mirabel and Tío Bruno will love the brand-new Mirabel and Bruno Petite Storytelling Set. You can even set the stage with Bruno’s rat friends, and add in different TV backdrops! Did I hear cousin Dolores is your favorite character? shopDisney’s Encanto Dolores Madrigal Fashion Doll is for you! It features Dolores’ signature outfit and even comes with her iconic accessories. Fans can also celebrate their love for Isabela and her amazing transformation with the Isabela Singing Fashion Doll, singing along to “What Else Can I Do?”

If you’re looking to add some of that “Encanto” style to your wardrobe, the Encanto Loungefly Mini Backpack is a perfect choice, featuring an appliqué and screen art of the vivid, fantastical home of the Madrigals. And if you’re like me and are always looking for ways to match accessories, you can complete the ensemble with the Encanto Minnie Mouse Ear Headband, both available on shopDisney.

For those looking to take some Disney “Encanto” stories on the road, we’ve got you covered! The “Encanto Little Golden Book” is a classic that captures the magic of the film, while the “Mystery in the Rain Forest Little Golden Book” tells an original story about Antonio and his animal friends. The “Disney Encanto My Busy Book” is a great option that combines an engaging storybook with toys in one activity kit! For those looking for “Encanto” adventures, you can pre-order “Encanto: We Don’t Talk about Bruno (Lyrical Tales),” or “Disney Encanto: Antonio’s Amazing Gift Board Book,” or check out “Encanto: A Tale of Three Sisters” by Anika Fajardo now!

We also have some great news for fans of Disney Dreamlight Valley! The next free major content update, “A Festival of Friendship” will launch in February, featuring a few special additions including the arrival of Village newcomer Mirabel from Disney’s “Encanto” and her reimagined Mini-Casita. Fans can also celebrate the Wonder of Encanto in the Family Magic Token Quest! Play Disney Emoji Blitz all February long for your chance to collect Platinum Mirabel! Be sure to play Disney Emoji Blitz each month this year for a new Platinum Emoji and collect them all.

But there’s more! Here is a list of some of the fantastical “Encanto”-themed offerings around our parks that you can experience throughout the month of February:

Mirabel from ‘Encanto’ to Make June 26 Debut at Walt Disney World Resort
Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade, Food and More at Walt Disney World

While we can’t talk about Bruno, we definitely can talk about the many ways guests can enjoy the Wonder of “Encanto” at Walt Disney World Resort! At Magic Kingdom Park, “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade”­­­­ features Mirabel from Disney’s “Encanto,” along with other friends in a super-sized procession of characters that winds its way through the park multiple times each day.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, scenes from “Encanto” are featured in the nighttime spectacular “Wonderful World of Animation.” Mirabel also makes an appearance in one of the scenes of “Fantasmic!” In addition, at EPCOT you can enjoy delicious food inspired by the movie at the EPCOT International Festival of Arts’ Food Studio “Vibrante & Vívido: ‘Encanto’ Cocina” (through February 20). At this exciting marketplace, authentic Colombian flavors are incorporated into food and drink offerings like Chorizo and Potato Empanadas, Spicy Ajiaco Soup and Coconut & Passion Fruit Smoothies. Another way to celebrate the Wonder of “Encanto” with the familia is by staying at one of our Disney Resort Hotels, where select Resorts showcase beloved movies that highlight Hispanic and Latino cultures like “Encanto.” Last but not least, guests may spot a Disney bus wrapped in the magic of “Encanto.”

Enjoy “Encanto” Featured in Nighttime Spectaculars at Disneyland Resort

“Encanto” will fill the night with vibrant color, beloved music and inspiring stories as its characters are featured in multiple nighttime spectaculars! The Disney100 celebration at Disneyland Resort begins Jan. 27, and “Encanto” will be featured in two all-new shows debuting for Disney’s 100th anniversary. In Disneyland park, “Wondrous Journeys” will feature nods to every film released by Walt Disney Animation Studios over the past century, with special moments from “Encanto” as Sleeping Beauty Castle is transformed into the magical Casa Madrigal. Over in Disney California Adventure park, “World of Color – ONE”  will celebrate how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. This spectacular also celebrates “Encanto” on an immense water screen that can span up to 380 feet across. 

In addition to the Disney100 festivities, the Madrigal family will return to the iconic façade of “it’s a small world” for a limited time beginning in early February, as it’s enchanted several times each evening with a visual montage paying tribute to the film’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” Projection and lighting effects bring this story to life, as tiles flip, turn and rearrange themselves, transitioning one scene to the next and culminating in a celebratory chorus and a nod to Bruno’s mysterious prophecy about Mirabel.

Enhance Your Little One’s Experience with an “Encanto” Royal Transformation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts 

If you’re looking for something extra special for your little one ages 3 to 12, you can make a reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Fantasyland at Disneyland park and Magic Kingdom Park and request “The Disney ‘Encanto’ Package.” Young royals will enjoy regal hairstyling, festive dress and more, transforming them into stunning members of the Madrigal family!
