If you’ve been following us on social media, you’ve probably seen all of our posts about the beautiful princess Elena of Avalor! We joined in welcoming her to Walt Disney World Resort last week and it was an unforgettable event.
If you missed her arrival on August 11th, no worries! “The Royal Welcome of Princess Elena” is a live performance that will be presented several times daily at Magic Kingdom Park. In the special welcoming ceremony on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage, Cinderella and Prince Charming will host their newest royal friend and invite her to share her amazing story with park guests. As part of the show, Elena will recount her magical adventures and triumphant return to Avalor through the song, “My Time.”
Sing along and interact with Princess Elena and her entourage each day at the Magic Kingdom. For the daily schedule visit https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/entertainment/magic-kingdom/princess-elena-royal-welcome/
Her coronation was a very special event. Girl Scouts of America were represented in full force. Princess Elena is an amazing role model for girls and the Girls Scouts recognizes her strength and positive influence. We learned at the event that Elena of Avalor has been picked up for a second season on the Disney Channel! Congrats!! I have included the video of her very first arrival at the Magic Kingdom below. But, there is nothing that compares to being at the show in person. Your children will absolutely love this unforgettable event at Disney.
