“Encanto” music disappears from “it’s a small world” overlay
Encanta (2021) has become such a popular IP for Disney, we’re starting to see characters and songs from the movies integrating into the parks.
Considering how much Encanto has been loved by Disney fans in such a short time, it’s no shock that Disney is looking for quick ways to include more IP in its parks. During the day, you can visit Mirabel, the film’s young hero, at Frontierland’s Zocalo Park in a colorful photo location that pays homage to the Madrigal family of Colombia at Disneyland Park. At the moment, customers can take advantage of a Encanto-stand in style at EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival, with a very Isabella-inspired topiary section at the Walt Disney World Resort.
It should also be noted that from April 22, “Main Street Electrical Parade” returns to Disneyland Park and celebrates its 50th anniversary with a new spectacular and final float that brings together stylized scenes from more than a dozen Disney stories. and Pixar, including Canto. Twinkling lights represent the Casita, magic butterflies and Miracle Candle from the film, with Mirabel and her cousin Antonio depicted as animated dolls atop their section of the float.
On April 11, Disney also launched a Encanto overlay on “it’s a small world”. Visitors can now see the façade of ‘it’s a small world’ change at Disneyland Resort as the Disneyland Park attraction takes on a ‘We’re not talking about Bruno’ twist. As Disneyland noted:
As the sun begins to set, gather family and friends in front of the iconic ‘It’s a Small World’ facade to celebrate Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award-winning film, Encanto.
Starting April 11, 2022, for a limited time, watch a light projection show animate the facade with a montage that pays homage to Encanto’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”
Like the Madrigal family’s casita, the “it’s a small world” façade tiles flip, turn and rearrange as one scene transitions to the next, culminating in a chorus of celebration and a nod to Bruno’s mysterious prophecy about Mirabel.
This memorable nighttime experience is scheduled multiple times each night and is a perfect way to embrace the magic of Encanto!
That being said, it looks like there have been technical difficulties with the overlay lately. @Cheltonjm took to Twitter to share that the overlay had no music last night.

The screening show usually features some of the film’s signature songs, however, it looks like last night’s guests may have missed the musical aspect of the overlay.
With “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” topping the charts, Encanto is quickly becoming a very popular and much talked about Disney film.
The song had become hugely popular on TikTok and is now an Oscar nominee, which is great news as the film is much more talked about now that it’s on Disney+ compared to its theatrical debut. Returning on November 24, 2021, the 60th feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Encanta, has been freed. We even get to see characters like Mirabel Madrigal (Stephanie Beatriz) at the Disneyland Resort arranging meet and greets with guests. The film will feature music by hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda and the voices of Stephanie Beatriz, John Leguizamo and Wilmer Valderrama.
As noted by Disney, the plot of Encanto is described as:
“Encanto” by Walt Disney Animation Studios tells the story of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the Colombian mountains, in a magical house, in a bustling city, in a wonderful and enchanted place called Encanto. The magic of the Encanto blessed each child in the family with a unique gift ranging from super strength to healing power – all but one child, Mirabel (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
Disney goes on to describe the film as follows:
Released November 24, 2021, the film features brand new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) and is directed by Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”) and Jared Bush (co-director “ Zootopia”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (“The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez” screenwriter), and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino; Bush and Castro Smith are the screenwriters for the film.
Encanto is now streaming on Disney+.
