There's no doubt that Orlando is the vacation kingdom for all-things princess. Now, for a limited time, a new princess has arrived at Walt Disney World, Elena of Avalor. The Latin inspired princess is being featured several times a day in a new stage show at the Magic Kingdom.
The adventurous and musically talented princess joins Cinderella and Prince Charming as she tells her story of leadership and adventure 5x times daily at the Cinderella Castle stage, where she performs an original song called, "My Time."
Princess Elena plays the guitar and sings live as she was taught by her grandfather to share stories through music and song. Her repertoire of original songs spans an array of Latin musical styles including Mariachi, Latin Pop, Salsa, Banda and Chilean Hip Hop.
Guests can see her in a one-of-a-kind gown made from 14 yards of crimson colored satin, embroidered with more than 900 flowers that represent her fairytale kingdom and family. Her crown holds 222 dazzling jewels.
Disney's newest character, based on a new animated television series, is a confident and compassionate teenager who lives in the enchanted kingdom of Avalor and is inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore including architecture, traditions, food and customs.
"This world is full of opportunity to be brave and bold and it's waiting for you," said Princess Elena. "Adios mis amigos!"
