    Hello, We will be visiting Epcot, and are excited about the new Journey of Water Attraction. Is the Moana character meet and greet currently at EPCOT daily with the new attraction? Or/and is she still at Animal Kingdom? Thank you!


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I just got to tour the Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana experience with some of my planDisney pals for the first time a few weeks ago, and it is a truly creative and innovative interactive experience. I saw guests of all ages enjoying their interaction with the water features. It is also good to know that you can go through the area without having to get soaked, as there are both dryer and less dry paths well marked for your tour. 

    Right after touring around this new addition to EPCOT, my friends and I walked over to get a picture with Moana, just across the walkway from the Journey of Water entrance. To be clear, even though she now greets fellow voyagers in EPCOT, Moana still sometimes needs to sail over to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Your best bet to ensure you meet her on her travels would be to consult with your My Disney Experience App, which will show you both locations and times to meet her, and all the other wonderful characters from around Walt Disney World. 

    BONUS TIP #1
    The EPCOT greeting area for Moana is nicely shaded for good photos, as well as wide enough for larger groups. 

    BONUS TIP #2
    Do not forget to consult with your My Disney Experience App for those visitation hours and locations. Before the app had this feature, my family and I more than once spent a good 15-20 minutes traversing a park, only to find out that the character we were hoping to meet had left minutes earlier to head off to another adventure. These kinds of time and energy savers are essential to a happy Walt Disney World vacation.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
