My goodness! I am so excited about Disney’s new Princess- Elena of Avalor! Disney Parks will welcome its first princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures. Princess Elena of Avalor will be appearing at Walt Disney World Resort this summer and at Disneyland Resort in the fall, following her television debut in a new animated series this summer on Disney Channel.
As a Latina mom, I am so excited about Disney’s new LATINA Princess! It’s about time! I can’t wait for my daughter to have a Disney Princess who resembles her and her culture. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the Disney gals, but let’s be honest- its always nice to have something or someone you can actually relate to!
Princess Elena is a bold, caring, funny and clever 16-year-old who is ascendant to the throne in the fairytale kingdom of Avalor. The series follows the story of Elena, who saves her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule with the support of her appointed Grand Council and some magical friends by her side. Elena’s adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders, while highlighting the importance of family and family traditions.
I can’t wait for the new series to hit the Disney Channel, and I especially can’t wait to take my daughter to Disney World to meet Princess Elena in person!
