For a limited time, guests at the Magic Kingdom can now help welcome Princess Elena of Avalor, the first Disney princess inspired by Latin cultures.
“The Royal Welcome of Princess Elena” is a live performance that is now being presented several times daily at Magic Kingdom Park. In the welcoming ceremony on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage, Cinderella and Prince Charming host their newest royal friend and invite her to share her story with park guests. As part of the show, Elena will recount her adventures through the song, “My Time.”
The show features Elena’s one-of-a-kind gown, made from 14 yards of crimson Avaloran satin, embroidered with more than 900 flowers that represent her kingdom and family. The crown she wears holds 222 jewels.
Elena’s debut at Walt Disney World follows the launch of the new animated series, “Elena of Avalor,” which premiered in a simulcast on Disney Channel and Disney Junior on July 22. Set in the enchanted fairytale kingdom of Avalor, the stories of “Elena of Avalor” incorporate influences from diverse Latin and Hispanic cultures through architecture, traditions, food and customs. The series airs Fridays at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel and weekends at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Disney Junior.
Elena will make her debut at Disneyland Resort at Disney California Adventure this fall.
