Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Parents seeking to introduce their children to the exciting world of travel need look no further than this dazzling DVD series that combines animation with live action footage to offer a fascinating glimpse at cultures around the world. Created by working mother and former Walt Disney Company Executive Producer Rashmi Turner, the Global Wonders series aims to nurture a strong sense of self-identity among younger viewers while boosting self-esteem and helping to improve cultural and social skills. In this installment, Trey and Brianna pay a visit to Marisa's home just as her family is preparing to celebrate Quinceanera celebration for her sister Anna. As the festive spirit takes over, each room of the house is suddenly transformed into a world of discovery. As they venture from room to room, Trey and Brianna sample enchiladas, dance the rumba, play with a mariachi band, and march in a Día de los Muertos parade. Later, after learning the ancient Aztec legend of Quetzalcoatl, Anna bestows Marisa with gifts that will ensure that everyone involved has a truly unforgettable time at the Quinceañera celebration.
