UPDATE May 20 - The Walt Disney Company (DIS) Management Presents at MoffettNathanson Annual Media & Communications Summit this week where Senior Executive Vice President and CFO of The Walt Disney Company, Christine McCarthy, had some interesting information about Encanto which further hints that an Encanto attraction is certainly in the pipe line for Walt Disney World and Disneyland in the future. Athough nothing is still confirmed, McCarthy said during the call that “Something that’s not yet really in the parks, but I think you will see it soon, is something like ‘Encanto,’”
There has been talk online of Encanto becoming a walk-through attraction at EPCOT but this at the moment is still speculation. We will keep you up to date with further details as and when they are announced on our news and Facebook page.
April 30 - This rumor certainly won't come as a surprise to any Disney fan. Since being released in November 2021, Encanto has taken the world by storm with its story and catchy songs including the controversial “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”. Well, it has come to light this week that American Actor and creator of the soundtrack to Encanto, Lin-Manuel Miranda, has confirmed in an interview with Insider that "Disney is working on putting something together."
Miranda told reporters when attending the Hispanic Federation's annual gala in New York City on Thursday April 28 that he is more eager to see an Encanto themed attraction at Walt Disney World or Disneyland rather than a sequel. Do not despair though, Miranda also said he has hopes for a sequel and there has been many rumors floated in the last few months about a possible Encanto 2!
"The Imagineers are on it, I don't know what they do or where they live, but I know they're on it." said Miranda when talking about a possible Encanto attraction. It seems as if the most likely type of attraction will be a walk through where "parkgoers could walk through the Madrigal family's whimsical home."
Within this concept we can expect to see the characters and the house respond and transform very much like it does in the film and we posed in our We DO Talk About Encanto Coming To The Disney Parks, featured article which we published back in February.
There are no further details about what, where or when this rumored attraction will be seen at Walt Disney World or Disneyland but this certainly gives Disney fans further hope that an Encanto attraction will become a reality in the future.
