Disney Bounding as Princess Moana and Friends


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.

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

IT’S OFFICIAL: After months and months of worldwide casting calls, we’ve finally found our next Walt Disney Animation Studios Princess… #MOANA.

We’re pumped to welcome 14yr old Auli’i Cravalho of Mililani, Hawaii to our project. What’s amazing about this story is that she didn’t think she was good enough so she never auditioned. Fortunately, one of our Oahu casting agents discovered her singing at a charity competition and the rest is history.

An awesome lesson to all young kids out there… work hard, have confidence in yourselves and never think you’re not good enough because you never know what the future holds.

Congratulations Auli’i!  We can’t wait to work with you and watch you bring this new Disney Princess to life. 🙂


This made us laugh!!  🙂

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
