    Hi there, I have a 6 year old who is a huge fan of Moana. She made it clear that if she doesn’t see Moana on our trip she will cry and be disappointed. We are going in next month in November during Thanksgiving Break. Will she have a chance to see her?

    Hei Hei Aida!

    Thanks for sailing by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My six-year-old daughter also loves Moana and her spirit of adventure. Unfortunately, because she is a fearless Wayfinder, the seas have called her, and currently, she does not have a permanent greeting place at Walt Disney World. The Disney Parks Blog will be the first place to announce her return, and I am hopeful that the stars will bring her back soon! 

    While we are waiting for her wayfinding adventures to be over, there are incredible adventures to be had in the spirit of ‘Ohana at the Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorite places to bask in the spirit of Aloha is at Moana Mercantile in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. There you will find trinkets and snacks worthy of Pua! The Princess of Motunui is known to make an appearance at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (which is the merriest of parties, and happening while you are visiting!). But a guaranteed viewing is during Happily Ever After’s Moana sequence. The sea will call you, and you might get a peek of Maui’s hook! And since Moana is a fan of adventure, you might see her in the most epic of shows - Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    If your Warrior Princess would be happy greeting other royal friends, she can find them throughout the Parks. We love greeting Merida at her Scottish enclave, and Belle is almost always available for an enchanted tale! The Royal Ladies make an appearance every day during the Festival of Fantasy Parade, and we love a royal meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    Aida, I’ll keep an eye out for the outrigger canoe, you keep an EAR out on Disney Parks Blog. From your mouth to Te Fiti’s ears, hopefully, the stars will bring her back soon! Feel free to float back by with any more questions.
