Part of the fun of going to Disney World is meeting our favorite characters — and there are just SO many to meet.
Obviously, meeting Mickey and Minnie is a priority for many. But you can also meet some of your favorite princesses, the occasional rare character, and even Disney villains. But a NEW character spot has popped up to meet Disney World. Here’s a hint: how far will YOU go to meet her?
Yep. We’re talking about Moana! Now, we first learned that Moana would start meeting guests in Disney’s Animal Kingdom on April 22nd. So we HAD to go see our favorite explorer and seafarer! We were invited to a media event to meet her before she starts meeting with guests – how fun! Look at how they have her area all setup.
We love the banners with all the Moana symbols, but look — PUA!
Moana came out to say hello to us, and we’ll admit, we were VERY excited to meet her.
Seriously, she’s so much fun to meet. For times on when you can meet Moana, check the My Disney Experience app — she’s already in there with several times listed for the day!

If you want to meet her, you can find her on Discovery Island (of course, she’s on an ISLAND for her meet and greet) at Animal Kingdom. As you walk over the bridge towards the Tree of Life, make a right turn towards DinoLand. The entrance for visitors will be right before the DinoLand sign.
So if you’ve got Moana fans in your group, be sure to head to her new meet and greet — she can’t wait to meet everyone!

Disclosure: In nearly all circumstances, Disney Food Blog writers and photographers pay full price for their own travel, hotel, food, beverage, and event tickets. We do this because it’s important to us as journalists to ensure not only that we give you unbiased opinions, but also that you can trust us to do so since we’re paying our own way. On rare occasions, when we are invited by a company to attend a preview as media, and when we choose to accept that invitation, we will always make you, our readers, aware of that situation. Today, we were invited by Disney World to attend their media event for the 25th Anniversary of Animal Kingdom. Note that when we attend events as media we are 1) Not required to review that event/food on any of our channels, and 2) Not required to review that event/food favorably. You can always count on DFB to give you a 100% unbiased and honest review of any event that we attend, food that we eat, or beverage that we drink. You can see more in our Disclosure Policy. Thank you for reading. — AJ
