    My little one is obsessed with Pocahontas and would love to actually hug her. I heard she has a meet-and-greet at Animal Kingdom. Is there a chance my little girl will be able to meet her in person?

    Wingapo, Jenna!

    I’m so glad you found your way to planDisney today. Like your daughter, I love to sing with all the voices of the mountains and paint with all the colors of the wind. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess, and I can still remember how magical my first time meeting her was.

    Pocahontas was greeting Guests from the Discovery Island Character Landing in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at one point in time, but she has been off running the pine trails of the forest lately. I consulted Grandmother Willow, and, unfortunately, there is not a Character Experience where your daughter can meet Pocahontas up close at this time. I know that’s not the answer you were hoping for, but who knows what lies just beyond the riverbend! Why, just today the Disney Parks Blog announced that many of the Character Experiences that have been missing in recent years will be returning in the coming months. While I don’t see Pocahontas directly listed in the article, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she will be coming home soon.

    Even though Pocahontas does not have a meet-and-greet at the moment, she currently appears in the Discovery River Character Cruises along the Discovery River in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom Park (appearances subject to change). You can check the times for both of these fun entertainment offerings by using the search feature in your My Disney Experience mobile app to make sure your own little princess doesn’t miss out on seeing her favorite Disney Princess during your vacation.

    I hope this information helps, Jenna. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and Disney Parks Instagram account for further updates on Character Experiences, and let me know if you have more questions before you set off on your magical adventure.

    Listen to your heart,
