Holiday Wish Guide: Disney's Elena of Avalor

Written by

Presented in Partnership with The Walt Disney Company...

One of the most inspiring new series' for kids to emerge in the past year is Disney's Elena of Avalor. The first Latin-inspired Disney Princess was an immediate hit, quickly becoming a fixture at Disney Parks, and becoming one of Disney Channel's most-watched animated shows. After being held captive in the Amulet of Avalor for over four decades, Elena was freed by Sofia the First and has returned to her kingdom as a brave and adventurous teenager who must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. As kids follow Elena's journey, they see the adventure unfold as she learns her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders. With Elena of Avalor: Ready to Rule now available on DVD, here's a look at some great gift ideas as part of my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide!
