Princess Elena is the protagonist of the Disney Channel animated series Elena of Avalor. She is the oldest princess of the Kingdom of Avalor, next in line to the throne. But before she can become Queen, she must learn to rule as crown princess.



Elena has the heart and mind of a true leader. She is devoted to the welfare of her subjects, her family and her friends. She is shown to hold her father in high esteem and looks to him for inspiration. Like the princess who freed her, Elena values keeping promises no matter what and has a dislike of disappointing her loved ones.

Physical AppearanceEdit

At sixteen years of age, Elena is a beautiful olive-skinned girl, with a slender figure and amber-brown eyes. She has ruby red lips and long dark brown hair tied in a ponytail.

Her signature outfit is a long red sleeveless over-skirt dress stylized with matching coral gauze ruffle/flounces around the elastic neckline and on the side and bottom with an attached ivory colored underskirt. Around her waist is a golden belt held in place with a golden buckle. She wears brown high heel shoes with flowery patterns. Elena's jewelry includes a pair of golden engraved hoop earrings, a braided beaded bracelet on her left wrist, and a flower hair comb clip in the right side of her hair.


Sofia the FirstEdit

Elena will appear in the upcoming special Elena and the Secret of Avalor. When Elena's parents and kingdom were taken from her by the evil sorceress, Shuriki, Elena bravely faced the sorceress to protect her little sister, Princess Isabel, and her grandparents, but in the process, the Amulet of Avalor pulled her inside its enchanted jewel, saving her life but imprisoning her at the same time. Forty-one years later[1], Sofia discovers the truth about the amulet and sets out to restore Elena to her human form and help her return to the Kingdom of Avalor.

Elena of AvalorEdit

Elena's story following her appearance in Sofia the First takes place in this show.

She becomes Ruler of the Kingdom of Avalor. But due to her age, she has to rule Avalor with a Grand Council comprised of her Grandfather Francisco, Grandmother Luisa, cousin Duke Esteban, and friend Naomi.

With some magical friends by her side – Mateo, a wizard-in-training, and Skylar, a magical flying creature – Princess Elena's adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion.

Disney ParksEdit

Elena is set to debut at Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom in August 2016.[3] She will appear at Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort on August 11.[4][5]
