The Discovery River Character Cruise, which features different socially-distanced Disney characters, premiered at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with the park’s reopening in July. Pocahontas and Meeko have always appeared on the cruise, but it seems that as of recently, John Smith has joined them!
John Smith, Pocahontas, and Meeko take the boat around the Discovery River and wave to guests from a distance.
The addition of John Smith comes a month after Disney reached an agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association, and though many Cast Members remain furloughed, some are returning to work.
Character cruises take place spontaneously throughout the day. What characters do you hope to see at Walt Disney World? Let us know in the comments.
