Update: This event has filled to capacity. Please keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future event opportunities.

The Disney Parks Blog is hosting another special “under the stars” meet-up later this week to celebrate the new Disney film “Moana” before it opens in U.S. theaters. This early screening of the “Moana” film will be held outside at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World Resort on Sunday night, November 20, 2016.

Our meet-up begins at 8:15 p.m. ET at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World Resort on Sunday, November 20, 2016. At the event, you’ll be able to view Disney’s “Moana” film.

“Moana” is the story of an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought – her own identity.

The film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess and the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and features music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i.

  • Thank you fro hosting this event adn for the invite to dinner adn meet adn greet with MOANA. I am beyond grateful to be included as I love Disney.

  • I was able to sign up and everything but I still haven’t gotten a confirmation email? Does this mean i didn’t actually get to sign up or

  • I signed up 9 minutes after the post went up and before it was updated to say the event had reached capacity, but I have not received an email saying I got in. What now?

  • Hi is the event already full? I am not seeing a hyperlink attached to the “click here”

    • Hi Sierra, yes- the event has filled to capacity.

  • So when it says “limit one guest per registrant,” does that mean we can bring a guest or that the registrant is the guest? Just a bit confusing and I don’t want to bring someone just to have them not be allowed in.

    • Sure, attendees can bring one guest. So, you and one person. Thanks, Jennifer.

  • Hello Thomas, Erin use to post these types of events for Disneyland and I have not seen one in a long time. Will they be hosting one in Disneyland too?

  • I signed up with a California address but I leave for Florida tomorrow. I hope that doesn’t hurt my spot….

  • Will you be hosting a similar event at Aulani?
