New Mirabel 1

Recently, we covered that Mirabel Madrigal would be getting her very own meet and greet at Magic Kingdom.

She will greet guests in Fairytale Garden surrounded by whimsical décor inspired by La Familia Madrigal. She will be replacing Merida, and the area will be redesigned to look like the Casita Madrigal.

We got to meet Mirabel in Frontierland at Disneyland in California. Watch the full experience in the video above.

Also in California, across the plaza at Disney California Adventure Park, Mirabel sings “Waiting on a Miracle” during World of Color — ONE.

Disneyland recently returned the “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” projection show on the front façade of “it’s a small world” as well. Take a look at our news coverage from January here, or watch our video of the show below. In addition to this, during the Oogie Boogie Bash last fall, Bruno debuted as a meet and greet option.

Mirabel Madrigal also joined the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade at Magic Kingdom last June.
