    We're traveling to WDW in September, and my daughter LOVES Moana. Is there a place to meet her or any of the characters from the movie yet?

    Hi Emily!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are planning an autumn vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. September is the perfect time for your visit! You will be able to enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine, as well as the fall special events in the theme parks. My favorite of these special events is the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, where you can sample treats from the Global Marketplaces throughout World Showcase!

    Just like your daughter, I love Moana! I love her passion to follow her dreams, her endearing friends and the incredible music from her movie. Unfortunately, the sea has been calling Moana, so she hasn't been able to make her way to Florida to have a scheduled Character Experience at Walt Disney World Resort. However, while Character appearances are always subject to change, in past years, she has met with Guests during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. So since you are traveling in September, I recommend that you consider enjoying Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party during your trip for your best chance at meeting Moana. My son and I met her last year during the Christmas party and it was a fantastic experience, so I'm sending extra pixie dust your way in hopes that you and your daughter will be able to meet her during your trip!

    There are quite a few new and exciting things headed to Walt Disney World Resort over the next few months, so I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and announcements as you continue planning! Come back to see us if we can help you with additional questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
