    Hi - We'll be going to Disneyland December 6th and wanted to know if Moana will be available to meet. I checked the app but the character isn't even listed.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Eva! Yay! Your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is just around the corner.

    You are in luck! Moana has been meeting pretty regularly in Adventureland as of late and I would expect that trend to continue through your travel dates. She can typically be found during the day near Aladdin’s Oasis which is located between The Enchanted Tiki Room and Jungle Cruise. On the Disneyland app, there are two ways to discover which characters are meeting around the parks. The default view is the map view which will display a Mickey icon at each location where a character is set to make an appearance that day. Or you can switch to the list view by tapping the icon with the three lines in the bottom right corner of the app. This will list all the characters meeting that day alphabetically which is handy when you are searching for a specific character like Moana. When you tap a character’s name, it will display their location and the times they are available.

    In my experience, the times listed on the app can sometimes vary just a bit from when the character actually appears, so I suggest showing up a little early to ensure you don’t miss your favorite. You can also find a Cast Member wearing an “Ask Me About Characters” button if you have any questions about character meet and greets while you are in the parks. Also, I always recommend keeping your eyes open for characters as you tour the parks. Many characters freely roam (and aren’t listed on the app) so you never know when you might just bump into one of your pals.

    I hope this helps you make your way to Moana and many other characters while you are at the Disneyland Resort. Have a magical day!
