Meeting Moana Around the World

Meeting Moana at DHS – she was so nice!

We first got to meet Disney’s newest princess, Moana, at Disney World.

She was only at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a few months before she left to sail the seas.

“Currently, Moana and Maui are sailing the seas with Hei Hei. She visited with guests at Walt Disney World for a short time but the sea called to her. You know how much of a free spirit she is. It’s hard for us to keep up with her. Hopefully, she will return to the Parks to greet guests sometime soon, but no details have been given about if and when she will return.” 

And, when we went to Disneyland…there she was at Adventureland greeting guests in Aladdin’s Oasis!

Then, we got to meet her for the 3rd time at Disney’s Aulani Resort on our honeymoon!!!

Interested in Disney Bounding as Moana???

Fun ideas to Disney Bound as Moana.

Disney Bounding: When Disney fans dress up as contemporary versions of their favorite characters and go to the theme parks.
**************************************
Disney Bounding is a way of dressing up as your favorite character using inspired color palettes, accessories, and clothing styles to look like the character, without actually being in a Disney costume. You simply use items from your own wardrobe to pull together a terrific look.

Coral and tan with seashell accents.

Princess Moana is one of the easiest Disney princesses to Disney Bound to!  Her colors are beautiful – coral and tan.

You can also Disney Bound as other characters in the movie like Maui:

Now, Disney Bounding is different than Cosplay, which is dressing up exactly like the characters.  This is not allowed inside any of the Disney Parks.

You can’t get into the Disney Parks dressed liked this, except at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party nights.
