What is the Encanto movie about?

Encanto is a Walt Disney Animation Studios animated film. The Encanto movie is about a young girl named Mirabel who lives in Encanto in Colombia. Every person in Encanto, except Mirabel, has been blessed with a gift unique to each person. When the magic gifts are in danger, Mirabel sets out to save the magic for everyone.


(You can even watch the Disney movie Encanto for party of your party activities or create a watch party station where kids can come in and out of that area for your Encanto-themed party! Or, create your party around a movie night!)

What kind of activities can you do at an Encanto birthday party?

There are lots of fun things you can do at an Encanto birthday party — from Encanto games for party to what food to serve for Encanto themes and more!

You can have a “Find the Magic” scavenger hunt where guests have to find items from the movie and you can have a themed party and serve Encanto-themed food and drinks.

You can also play Encanto games for birthday party like butterfly tag or hide-and-seek or set up a craft table where kids can make their own Encanto crafts.

Did you know that “Encanto” comes from the Spanish word for “enchantment” or “charm”?

What to do at an Encanto theme party:

  1. Dress up in Encanto costumes (like this Mirabel dress or Antonio costume) or, if you have younger kids, have a dress up trunk, including butterfly wings, and let them choose their own Encanto party costumes!
  2. Have a piñata filled with candy and small toys.
  3. Play pin the tail on the donkey (or other theme Encanto games).
  4. Serve Central/South American food.
  5. Play music from the Encanto soundtrack.
  6. Decorate with brightly colored streamers, balloons, and banners.
  7. Give out Encanto party favors such as small toys, candy, or sunglasses in bright colors for Encanto party bag fillers.
  8. Make a birthday cake or cupcakes decorated with bright colors and flowers.
  9. Play games like limbo or tag.
  10. Build a flower garden (this will be a HUGE hit) for little ones.
  11. Use the pages out of this book for an Encanto coloring pages / Encanto activity pages table. Be sure to include blank paper for kids to draw their own Encanto party characters!
