Disneyland Debuting Limited Time ‘Encanto’ Projection Show for Spring

Encanto at Disneyland

Guests visiting Disneyland this spring will get to enjoy a new limited time projection show dedicated to the Oscar-winning film, “Encanto.”

Kicking off April 11, 2022, the iconic façade of “it’s a small world” will be transformed several times each evening with a brief visual montage that pays tribute to the movie’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

Watch this movie moment come to life through projection and lighting effects that make tiles across the “it’s a small world” façade flip, turn, and rearrange themselves as one scene transitions to the next, in an artistic style inspired by the lyrics.

And of course, guests are encouraged to sing along. If you need to practice, a new Sing Along version of the film is now on Disney+.

That’s not all of the “Encanto” fun guests get to enjoy at Disneyland this spring, though.

During the day, visit Mirabel at her new location at Frontierland’s Zocalo Park, in a colorful photo location that pays homage to the Madrigal family from Colombia.

She was previously at Disney California Adventure for the Holidays, but moved to Disneyland last month (March 2022). Here she is in a Disney Parks’ TikTok:

And don’t forget that starting April 22, the “Main Street Electrical Parade” returns to Disneyland, and one of its new floats will include a tribute to “Encanto” with lights depicting the Casita, magical butterflies, and Miracle Candle from the film, with Mirabel and her cousin Antonio represented as animated dolls atop their section of the float.
