This is what we call the victim totem pole. It’s the same reason they want to re-theme Splash Mountain to Tiana, who has no place in that area of the park or on a mountain-themed attraction, instead of Pocahontas, who would at least make sense. Gays aren’t at the top, but they’re higher than Hispanics, and blacks are higher than native Americans.
I assume it’s about potential toy sales. They may expect to sell more toys of a character in a cool space suit ( non culturally specific) than a character in an ethnic costume.
Except a) Encanto is NOT as popular as Frozen, nor is its merchandise and b) aside from the Mirabel Meet & Greet, there’s the nightly Bruno song & light projection show at DL and Encanto was added to the Main Street Electrical Parade. Lightyear has gotten one character meet. Think Encanto is winning in that comparison.
