As part of the show, Elena will recount her magical adventures and triumphant return to Avalor through the song, “My Time.”

While Elena’s music makes the new show shimmer and sparkle, so does the new princess’ vibrant royal gown and glittering crown. Rich in color and detail, the gown reflects Elena’s special qualities and cultural origins. The one-of-a-kind gown is made from 14 yards of crimson Avaloran satin, embroidered with more than 900 flowers that represent her kingdom and family. The beautiful crown she wears holds 222 dazzling jewels.
