Plans are in early development, but guests could enter the casita from “Encanto” and ride on an alebrije from “Coco.” Concept art implies this project would also replace Rivers of America and Tom Sawyer Island. It appears the land could wrap around the north end of Rivers of America, connecting Frontierland to Liberty Square in a second direction, by way of a linking Big Thunder Mountain to Haunted Mansion.

  1. An incredibly bad decision. Coco yes…but, they can’t just plug in Encanto because it’s another Latino culture to go along side Coco. Coco fits because Mexico is beyond the Texas or Arizona boarder…like the new land is beyond Thunder Mountain. But, Encanto is Columbia. That does not fit into Frontierland. As for the villains, it’s fine if there is a connection (path) with Haunted Mansion.
