Since Walt Disney Animation’s latest film ‘Encanto’ came out it’s been taking the world by storm. Songs like “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “Surface Pressure” have topped the charts. Memes are everywhere talking about Bruno. It’s become arguably bigger than “Frozen.”
With the popularity has come many asking for Disney to consider adding “Encanto” to Disney parks like they have added “Frozen.”
It seem that Disney is doing just that, but in a much smaller scale.
At EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival you can find an “Encanto”-inspired garden that is based on the popular film and the characters in it including Mirabel, Julieta, Isabela (obviously), Luisa and a path inspired by Antonio.
The exhibit is supposedly being added to celebrate “Her Story” with “Women’s History Month” but it’s likely really being added because of the popularity of “Encanto.” If Disney can leverage good PR with cashing in on a “___ Month” they will. Just wait till June.
The new garden will be available through May 22, 2022. So it will end before the Flower and Garden Festival does on July 4th.
The garden is located in the World Showcase, between the Morocco pavilion and the France pavilion. It is near La Isla Fresca Outdoor Kitchen.
Disney should use this opportunity to have a Bruno character actor sneak around the garden from time to time. Or all over The World Showcase. Guests would go crazy for it.
If you are in the World Showcase there are two more gardens to visit at the EPCOT festival including “Extraordinary Orchids” and the “Tropical Rainforest Garden.” These are located by the Mexican pavilion.
Given the popularity of “Encanto” it’s likely just a matter of time till they add a more permanent attraction somewhere. Then again, people have been clamoring for a “Coco” overlay to the “Gran Fiesta Tour Featuring the Three Caballeros” for years too and nothing has come of it yet.
