The Royal Petunia: Elena of Avalor


I have always had an appreciation for Latin culture. The colors, the food, the music, the flair. It is special and unique. And finally, they have a princess. Meet Disney's newest beauty, Elena of Avalor. She embodies old world charm with Caribbean spice. Miami meets Cartagena. Havana meets San Juan. Flamenco meets Mariachi--and everything in between. 

She will make her debut on Disney's "Sofia the First," with her own follow-up series scheduled for 2016. I am truly looking forward to seeing how Disney brings her to life. I trust that she will be an amazing role model not only for Latina youth, but for girls and women from all walks of life. 

Who is your favorite Disney princess? Mine is Snow White. She's the "fairest of them all" and I love her friendship with the blue birds. However, Elena is going to be major competition when it comes to florals, frills and fashion! ; )
