New ‘Encanto’ Ear Headband Now Available at Magic Kingdom

A new fantastical and magical take on the iconic Mickey ear headband recently debuted at Magic Kingdom, as a new “Encanto” headband is now available at several retail locations throughout the park. We found this item at the Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. and at Big Top Souvenirs in the Fantasyland section of the park; this item debuted at Disneyland in late September and is also available for purchase on shopDisney.

“Encanto” at Walt Disney World

“Encanto” tells the story of the Madrigal family and, more specifically, Mirabel, who must fight to keep the proverbial and literal magic of her family alive. The film’s representation has increased throughout Walt Disney World Resort since its initially modest box office showing in late 2021. The film blossomed in popularity after debuting on the Disney+ streaming service that holiday season, with references to the movie growing throughout Walt Disney World parks as a result.

Mirabel Madrigal started appearing in the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade at Magic Kingdom in 2022, and a permanent meet and greet opened in the Fantasyland section of the park on September 15 of this year. Bruno Madrigal started appearing in the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade on September 15 to coincide with the start of Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month, and more “Encanto” characters could be coming to the resort in the near future, as Walt Disney World recently posted a casting call for a Luisa Madrigal performer.

“Encanto” theming appears on a bus wrap and on a Disney Skyliner car at Walt Disney World Resort, and additional representation may be coming in the future. Walt Disney Imagineering presented a potential Tropical Americas-themed overhaul of Dinoland U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort at Destination D23 2023, referencing “Encanto” as one of the land’s possible intellectual property tie-ins.
