A few weeks ago, we asked Disney Parks Blog readers to share the Disney character who embodies “summer” for them and promised to feature that character in our next Disney Doodle.

Today we’re happy to share that the character receiving the most votes was Moana!

Here, artist Ashley Taylor depicts Moana and her sidekick, Pua, exploring the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool. In the film, Pua has a not-so-great experience with the ocean the first time Moana tries to leave Motunui, so Ashley decided to give him a little encouragement to give the water another try.

“I love visiting Typhoon Lagoon because it provides fun attractions for all types of swimmers!” Ashley says. “I can easily imagine Moana utilizing the wave pool to teach Pua how to be a confident swimmer for her future voyages!”

  • This is such a delightful Disney Doodle! Pua is one of my favorite characters from the film and this is such a sweet depiction of his friendship with Moana.
