One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is watching a new Disney movie in theaters on Thanksgiving night. We have enjoyed Ralph Breaks the Internet and Frozen 2 in previous years. This year my family is excited to see Encanto! Disney describes the movie as:

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto.

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

The film releases on November 24, 2021. Encanto features new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda. You can see a trailer for the film HERE.

Our own Kenny the Pirate had the opportunity to meet Mirabel! She appears at California Adventure intermittently. She’s on Pixar Pier in a gazebo. This is located near Paradise Garden Grill. When she’s not meeting there, you can find the 3 Caballeros there as well.

There is no schedule for dates and times, but she is supposed to be meeting there through the Festival of the Holidays. PhotoPass is not there, but Cast Members are very helpful in assisting with photo taking.

Kenny noted that she is sweet and asked him to try colored rim glasses. I love the new characters that meet before a film debuts! I hope we get something similar over on the East Coast at Disney World.

How to interact with characters

Kenny has so many amazing tips for interacting with characters on Character Locator. Questions to ask, various poses, and more can be found under each character.

Character meets are beginning to return to the parks in the form of “sightings.” So far we have Mickey Mouse, the Princesses, and Disney Junior friends.

Brush up on those skills because we will finally have a bit more interaction with them!
