Disney Channel and Disney Junior will debut a special simulcast of Elena of Avalor‘s themed episode entitled, “A Day to Remember” this Sunday, October 16 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT). Variety Latino is joining in on the fun by sharing this very special video featurette with the cast and creative team behind the popular animated series talking about the importance of this holiday.
In the episode airing on Sunday, Elena (voiced by Aimee Carrero) discovers her ability to see ghosts and sets out to help the spirit of a woman mend the rift between her grandchildren and save the family restaurant.
