Before today, there was a singalong with an Encanto overlay at Disneyland’s “it’s a small world.” However, without warning this projection show overlay was cancelled. You may remember from the Encanto film that Antonio has a magical treehouse where he communicates with animals. Now, Encanto is so popular it’s even getting its own attraction!

The Madrigal Family from Disney’s animated film Encanto have become a household name around the world. Mirabel’s meet and greet first occurred during the ¡Viva Navidad! Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Park in November 2021. You can read that news story HERE. Then, in March, Mirabel debuted a meet at Disney’s California Adventure! Not only that, but at Disney World, Mirabel joined the “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade on June 26!

In July, we shared that Disneyland’s Oogie Boogie Bash sold out in a record 4 days! Everyone eagerly awaits Oogie Boogie Bash at California Adventure! On 23 select nights beginning Sept. 6, through Oct. 31, 2022, the separate-ticket, after-park hours event Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure park will add to the family-friendly fun during Halloween Time.

This limited-capacity event offers kids and guests of all ages the opportunity to enjoy the park’s attractions, unique entertainment, character sightings and more, while dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes. In addition to taking in all the spook-tacular sights and trick-or-treating experiences, guests attending Oogie Boogie Bash will also be able to explore areas inside Disney California Adventure park that remain open during the party, including Avengers Campus.

"Encanto" was good, but our family of 7 liked "Coco" infinitely better!!! It's a masterpiece!
