Today, ‘An Encanto Celebration’ debuted onboard the Disney Magic to the delight of guests who packed in the D-Lounge for the 2PM event leaving standing room only for late arrivals.
When Disney Cruise Line revealed the new experience last Friday, they described it as follows:
Guests can join the fantastical family Madrigal during an all-new immersive experience, “An Encanto Celebration,” designed to engage families through music, crafts and storytelling. The interactive experience gives guests an opportunity to meet and take photos with Mirabel and the family member we don’t talk about, Bruno, during their Disney Cruise Line debut. Families can also join a spirited sing-along of beloved “Encanto” songs and create butterfly and flower crafts inspired by the film. During the show, guests can experience a true taste of South America thanks to a selection of local Colombian beers, cocktails and sodas along with film-inspired mocktails.
A selection of drinks were available from the bar in D-Lounge including a mocktail named the Coco-Lima.
The special cocktail was unnamed, but listed as “Cocktail 3” on the recipe printout.
The event started with some questions about Encanto led by members of the entertainment team. Approximately 10 kids who answered questions correctly were invited up on stage.
The experience continued with the singing of the Encanto theme using maracas. The lyrics were displayed on the screens around D-Lounge to aid in guest participation.
The celebration included two crafts with supplies available for making flowers and a butterfly.
What is an Encanto experience without the song about the person that one family member… The next song was We Don’t Talk About Bruno with different kids invited onstage. There was full audience participation for this song.
The entertainment cast members, Ricardo and Lily, held another round of questions with more kids invited up on stage before launching to another song from the film, Surface Pressure.
The event concluded with a Mirabel and Bruno meet and greet allowing guests to take photos.
‘An Encanto Celebration‘ was just about 40 minutes in run time and was reported to be a hit with those in attendance.
