A Permanant Home for Mirabel

However, due to massive demand from fans, Mirabel will now be getting a much more permanent meet-and-greet location.

Earlier this year, Disney introduced the “courtyard outside Casa Madrigal,” a custom-tailored meeting location for Mirabel to hang out with her friends and fans. The area replaced what was once known as Merida’s Scottish Highland setting in the Fairytale Garden.

Beginning today, September 15, 2023, fans will be able to experience this meet and greet. It is so exciting to know that Disney is listening to fans and implementing their feedback into the Parks. There is no doubt that there is so much more to come for Mirabel and her family from Encanto in the Disney theme parks.
