"Island of Youth" is the fourth episode of the Disney Channel animated series, Elena of Avalor. It premiered on August 12, 2016.


It is Chancellor Esteban's birthday and he is convinced that everyone has forgotten about it. He spends some time in the library lamenting that when he was a young man he had all sorts of big dreams that never came true because he spent all his life following orders first from his grandparents, then from Shuriki during her forty-one year rule of Avalor, and now from his cousin Elena. Meanwhile it is revealed that Elena is planning a surprise party for Esteban: Luisa is baking his favorite cake, Francisco and Isabel are rehearsing a duet for him, and Elena and Mateo plan to keep him away from the castle until everything is ready by taking him sailing. Elena and Mateo go to him and show him one of Alakazar's magical maps. When Esteban sees a picture of the Island of Santalos on it, he agrees to go and they set out.

Esteban and the others arrive at the dock and immediately set out for the Island of Santalos. On the way, Esteban reveals that he wants to go there to find the Fountain of Youth so he can restore his youth and live the life he has always wanted to live. Meanwhile back at Avalor Castle, Isabel has invented a guitardion for the party. She and her grandfather soon get into a dispute over how it has always been played and how she plays it on her invention. At Luisa's urging, they resolve it with a battle of the songs that Isabel wins, to Francisco's disappointment.

Meanwhile, Elena, Mateo, and Esteban arrive on Santalos. Esteban runs off into the jungle and he finds the Fountain of Youth. He drinks a lot of water and becomes young again. However, it becomes clear he drank too much water and his increasing youth quickly makes him a handful. Elena and Mateo turn him back to normal with a Flower of Age. Suddenly, the island begins to vanish and they run to get off the island. On the way, Elena falls in a ravine but Esteban saves her. After getting off the island, they head back to the castle where they celebrate Esteban's birthday.
