In our Disney Doodles blog series, Disney artists imagine what a character would do or see first if they had the chance to visit a Disney Park.

In today’s Doodle, artist Ashley Taylor imagines what Moana would do if she had the chance to visit Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. According to her, the inspiration for this Doodle came from a sweet family moment shown in the film.

“I love when Moana dances with Gramma Tala,” she said. “I would imagine she would have a great time dancing around the Polynesian resort!”


  • We will coming to Walt Disney World for Christmas 2018. Moana is my Granddaughter’s favorite. Will she be available for a meet and greet?

  • HI
    I am coming to Disney on May 21st – Is there anywhere to see Moana?

  • Yes! It’s crazy that Moana is not in wdw…

  • I have no idea how I’m going to tell my 4 year old that Moana is not going to be at WDW. She is going to be crushed. Please please add her for a meet and greet.

  • My 2 year old son is obsessed with Moana and Maui. We are visiting WDW at the end of November and are really hoping they will add them! This is his first trip to Disney and they are the only characters he loves so far.

  • Yes! i agree that Moana should be permanent at the Polynesian village Resort. My daughter will love it. I do hope we can see her when we go in Oct 18′

  • I agree with Susan
    We are planning a trip to Disney World in October of 2018 and Moana is my 2-year-old daughter’s favorite. I am crossing all my fingers and toes that Moana will be around for my daughter to meet

  • YES… PLEASE ADD MORE MOANA to the parks and the Polynesian!!! It’s a no-brainer! She is an incredibly popular character, especially with her Netflix exposure to an entire generation, and a huge draw to the brand for juniors.. much more so than Lilo & Stitch!!

  • I agree with Susan

  • Moana should become a permanent character along Lilo & Stitch at the Polynesian Village Resort.
