Mickey Mouse

No trip to Disney World is complete without taking a bit of time for the family to meet Mickey Mouse. After all, he’s the main character attraction no matter which of the Disney parks you go to. Mickey Mouse can be found in each of the Disney Parks, from Magic Kingdom to Hollywood Studios, and he also visits several dining establishments across Disney property, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet him.

Meet Moana at Disney World

Moana Mountains

Moana is certainly one of the most popular Disney characters to meet. Unlike other characters throughout the park, Moana can’t be found roaming the park. You’ll have to attend one of Magic Kingdom’s holiday parties, either Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Each of these special events also comes with an extra price tag: Mickey’s Halloween Party starts at $79 per ticket and Mickey’s Christmas Party starts at $99 per ticket. These prices go up during peak times or if you wait to purchase your ticket the day of each event.

You’ll find Moana at each of these parties in the queue area of the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland. She starts greeting guests at around 5:45, and Disney Parks Moms Panel recommends planning for at least a 30-minute wait. WDW Prep School recommends seeing Moana during the last half of each party as the wait times tend to be shorter.
