One of the latest hits from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Encanto (2021) has only grown in popularity since its theatrical and Disney+ release alongside social media fame.

Mirabel Madrigal will be making her Walt Disney World debut beginning on June 26, 2022 in the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade that runs daily through the Magic Kingdom.

The Cavalcade is packed with favorite Disney and Pixar characters, and Mirabel is sure to be an exciting addition for Guests to see alongside characters like Miguel from Coco (2017), Nick and Judy from Zootopia (2016) Moana, Merida from Brave (2012) and more.

Mirabel first made her Disney Parks debut last year during the Disney Festival of the Holidays at Disney California Adventure. Her character meet and greet was then moved to Disneyland Park after the holiday season, but until she makes her debut in the cavalcade next week, Mirabel sightings were limited to the Disneyland Resort.

At Walt Disney World, Encanto-inspired cuisine, gardens, and Disney PhotoPass Magic Shots have been a part of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, but Mirabel herself had not been spotted at the parks alongside these special events.
