Disneyland’s ‘it’s a small world’ Brings Back ‘Encanto’ Projection Show For Limited Time

it's a small world - Encanto' Projection Show

Disneyland is bringing back the “Encanto”-themed projection show on “it’s a small world” for a limited time, starting February 17, 2023

The Show

For a limited time, a light projection show will animate the façade of Disneyland’s “it’s a small world” attraction with an “Encanto” montage that pays tribute to the film’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

This movie moment comes 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.

Guests are welcome to sing along, and you can practice beforehand with the “Encanto” Sing-Along version on Disney+.

During that month, the show will take place on the attraction after dark several times each evening. Typically showtimes are 8:15pm, 9pm, and 10pm, but check the Disneyland mobile app for showtimes the day of your visit.
