Isabela From ‘Encanto’ Makes Live Meet and Greet Debut During runDisney Princess Half Marathon

Isabela from “Encanto” made her live meet and greet debut during this weekend’s Disney Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World. She appeared alongside her younger sister, Mirabel, who also appeared at runDisney races before her permanent meet-and-greet opened at Magic Kingdom last fall.

Mirabel and Isabela from "Encanto." Isabela appeared for the first time during the 2024 Disney Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World.

Mirabel and Isabela were on a platform with cacti, a donkey, and other themed props. Runners could stop and take a distanced photo from the ground in front of the platform but there was not a PhotoPass photographer stationed with the sisters.

Due to the chilly morning weather, both were wearing themed ponchos over their standard outfits. Isabela was in her purple floral dress as it appears for most of “Encanto,” with a lilac poncho.

Isabela has appeared in live-action during Disney On Ice but this is her first Disney Parks meet and greet appearance.

360degreesofdisney also shared a video of the sisters. Instagram user @thatartmom commented that the Cast Member friend of Isabela has “been vouching for this since the movie came out[.]”

In “Encanto,” Isabela Madrigal has the power to create and control plants. She’s voiced by Diane Guerrero and sings “What Else Can I Do?” along with Mirabel (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz) when she realizes she can branch out and make imperfect creations.
