Where Can You Meet Moana at Disney World?

Where can you meet Moana at Disney World? That is one of the questions I answered most on the planDisney Panel. Luckily, Moana has now become a more permanent meet and greet at Walt Disney World. Before you could only meet her during special events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Where to Meet Moana at Disney World

You can now meet Moana regularly in two Walt Disney World Parks – Animal Kingdom and EPCOT. 

Now that Journey of Water, Inspired of Water is opening October 16th in EPCOT, you can also meet Moana there. They are currently in a soft opening, but Moana was available for a meet and greet right next to the entrance. The line started forming next to Spaceship Earth on the right side. 

You meet Moana in World Nature near the entrance to Journey of Water, inspired by Moana. 

Where to meet Moana EPCOT

The line was quite long when I walked by. If you want to experience Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana before the official opening (select days between October 6 and October 15, 2023) you will need to join the virtual queue beginning at 9:00 AM on the My Disney Experience App. Unlike the early Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind virtual queue, you do need to be inside EPCOT to join Journey of Water.

Meet Moana in Animal Kingdom Theme Park

In Animal Kingdom you can meet Moana at Character Island in Discovery Island. She usually meets from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm daily. I recommend checking the My Disney Experience app for updated times when you visit.

I also love Moana! The good news is that the renovation that is taking place at Epcot includes an exclusive area for the film. I look forward to seeing you ready.
