BAY LAKE, Fla. – We don’t talk about Bruno, but very soon, everyone at Walt Disney World will be talking about Mirabel.

That’s because the popular character from the film “Encanto” will be making her official debut in the “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade” on June 26.

“The young hero from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hit film ‘Encanto’ will join Miguel from ‘Coco,’ Nick and Judy from ‘Zootopia,’ Max, Goof, Moana and more as this super-sized cavalcade winds through the park several times each day,” Disney explained on its blog Wednesday.

The cavalcade begins in Frontierland before snaking through Liberty Square and then down Main Street U.S.A.
