Disney's Princess Elena of Avalor makes Magic Kingdom debut

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Princess Elena of Avalor made her royal debut Thursday at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Elena is Disney's first Latina princess. She's the star of a new animated TV series on the Disney channel, which premiered on July 22.

The character is described as "thoughtful, resilient, and compassionate."

Princess Elena was featured in a giant window display on Chicago's Magnificent Mile in June, about a month before the show hit the small screen.

Actress Jenna Ortega, who voices Elena's younger sister Princess Isabel on the show, was in Chicago for the unveiling.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7. null
