Disney Movie Summer Saturdays – Encanto

We might not talk about Bruno (No,no,no), but we NEED to include Encanto in our summer movie series.

For our Encanto evening, we have several dance parties while watching the movie. We for sure rewind Surface Pressure, Family Madrigal, and We Don’t Talk About Bruno over and over again. 

Now, I am not an expert on Colombian cooking. I do however love eating Colombian food! I have done the research for you and made the recipes below. I can tell you, they all came out muy delicioso! *Chef’s Kiss*

So put on your dancing shoes, and get ready to join the Familia Madrigal! 

Arroz Con Pollo

This is one of my favorite South American dishes, and this recipe has a Colombian twist.



We couldn’t have an Encanto movie night without Arepas! These turned out really well!  


Golden Yuca & Coconut Cake

This was a hit, if you like coconut.  A hint — you don’t need a yuca, you can get cassava flour and it will be the same with less work! 


My name is Sarah Niswender and I have WDW in my veins, going to the parks several times per year as early as age 2. Growing up in SoFla I was fortunate enough to have a lifelong Disney education, thanks to my mother (and hardworking father)! I am now passing the love for everything Disney along to my daughter and somewhat reluctant husband. I have participated in several runDisney events and am looking forward to participating as a part of the WDWRadio running team. See you on Main Street USA!
