    Can you meet Moana in a park? Or is she only available for visits during celebrations or certain times? Thank you in advance.

    Hei Hei KaSarah and thanks for crossing the oceans and finding your way to planDisney!

    Moana is one of my daughter's favourite Disney characters, and she always keen to know where Guests can meet this popular, and brave young voyager when visiting Walt Disney World Resort.  In past yEars, Guests have indeed been able to find Moana during special seasonal events like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, however, as we begin to Return to a World of Magic at Walt Disney World Resort, all Character meet & greets continue to be paused.  

    However, to keep you on Maui's hook!  I do have some fun Disney news to share with you.  From late July 2021, Guests will be able to opt to stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort in newly reimagined rooms featuring gorgeous theming from Disney's Moana.  In fact, just recently the Disney Parks Blog revealed a first look into these reimagined rooms at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  The Poly is one of my all-time favourite hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection, and I personally can't wait to experience its refurbishment, plus of course, I'm looking forward to browsing amongst the island-style goods found at Moana Mercantile!

    Also, as part of the on-going reimagining of Epcot, Guests will at some point in the future be able to experience the Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana”.  This beautiful sounding new Attraction is set to be an exploration-style trail where adventurers are invited to see how far the natural cycle of water goes as it finds its way around our shared global environment.

    My best advice is to keep a watch on the line where the sky meets the sea on the Disney Parks Blog, which really is the best spot for all Disney-related news and announcements, including any updates on when Moana finds her way back to Walt Disney World Resort.  But until then, KaSarah, you can always find some Moana-inspired retail therapy on shopDisney!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
