    Is Maui anywhere in Disney, a human size poster of him, anything? My 3 year old is obsessed with Maui from the movie Moana, and if I could at least get some kind of picture with him and my son that would literally make this trip prefect!

    Hello, Cami! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I see you are soon embarking on a great voyage to the Walt Disney World Resort! Some of our planDisney pals are there right now, so I asked them to keep an eye out for everyone’s favorite demigod for you, but I’m afraid they haven’t seen him. Apparently, Maui is out exploring some other islands these days and hasn’t been able to shape-shift his way to Walt Disney World. Hopefully he’ll come by for a visit soon!

    Cami, I do know that Moana has been appearing along with some of her other Disney friends in the daily character cavalcades in the Magic Kingdom Park. Also, there is a preview of the coming Moana: Journey of Water attraction as part of Walt Disney Imagineering Presents the EPCOT Experience in the Odyssey Events Pavilion near Test Track. Maui himself doesn’t appear in it, but you will hear Gramma Tala tell the tale of water and its importance in our lives, alongside some beautiful Moana themed graphics. It’s a short segment in a total presentation that runs on a loop of about 10 minutes or so.

    I want to share one more thing with you, Cami. They’re not open just yet, but I thought you might like to see what the refurbished rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort will look like. I love all the new details that take their cues from Moana - including a hint of a certain demigod! Bookings are currently available for stays after late July of this year, so maybe you can voyage back one day soon!

    I’m sorry we couldn’t find Maui for you just now, but I do hope you’ll have a magical vacation with your little one. Please sail back and see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
