COMIDA AND MORE

Some must haves are the Charcuterie in a Cup from Spain, the Pão de Queijo from Brazil, and the Guava Cake with whipped cream and coconut from Shimmering Sips Hosted by CORKCICLE. All are deliciosos!
ART AND CULTURA
Hispanic and Latin American cultures are full of art of all types: paintings, pottery, graphics, film and more. Each country has its own art forms that weave together to form a tapestry of diversity. Here are some of the ways Walt Disney World will celebrate these rich traditions.
In honor of the month and available year-round, the Disney Springs Art Walk will welcome TRATOS, a Miami-based Cuban couple, who will live paint their art this September.
Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom can learn to draw Dante from Disney/Pixar’s “Coco” and hear about a featured Hispanic animator at The Animation Experience at Conservation Station. Disney Resort hotel guests can also view Movies Under the Stars, look for movies inspired by Latin America, like “Encanto” and “Coco,” which will be shown on select nights during the month!
If you like shopping like I do, new merchandise will arrive in time for the festivities, with items from beloved films like Disney/Pixar’s “Coco” and Disney Animation’s “Encanto” for the celebration and beyond.
CELEBRATE ALL YEAR LONG
You can keep the Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month celebration going at Disney Springs that offers a variety of Hispanic-owned specialty shops and eateries. From dining at Jaleo by José Andrés and Frontera Cocina to perusing Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers, there is so much to explore! Plus, merchandise that pays homage to Disney’s Hispanic and Latin American-inspired characters will also be available.
Using Walt Disney World transportation? See if you’re gliding alongside the Familia Madrigal on the Skyliner or riding with Miguel on a bus. Character murals on vehicle exteriors add an extra sprinkle of pixie dust!
