The Walt Disney Company is blowing off the doors to its Disney Parks globally, but the Magic Kingdom Park in Orlando, Florida, could be the home of a new Encanto (2021) and villains-themed land.
Encanto is officially coming to the Disney Parks after the award-winning animated film stunned the world with classic songs like “We Don’t Talk about Bruno” and “Surface Pressure.”
Characters like Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) and Luisa (Jessica Darrow) are now fan-favorites, and fans couldn’t be more excited to one day welcome them into Disney Parks globally.
During the D23 Expo 2022, Josh D’Amaro was more than excited to offer a sneak peek into the “Blue Sky” idea of expanding the Magic Kingdom Park behind the pre-existing Big Thunder Mountain attraction with an Encanto land:

Josh D’Amaro stated, “Beyond Big Thunder Mountain is going to be so, so cool.”
Adjacent to this Encanto land is a Coco (2017) themed land and an entire section of Magic Kingdom dedicated to beloved villains like Maleficent and more.
Imagineering is thinking and working towards the next great experience that’s helped define the first 100 years of The Walt Disney Company. CEO Bob Chapek and more are leading the next era of magic and storytelling to all Disney experiences globally, whether on land or sea. With plenty of new merchandise, entertainment, food, and drink, Disney is prepping for the company’s most significant expansion in history.
Nonetheless, this Encanto land and more remain as “Blue Sky” mockups, rather than official announcements of new land coming to Magic Kingdom.
