Walt Disney Animation Studios' next magical adventure, Wish, will arrive in theaters in just a few weeks, but Disney has wasted no time in marketing the next big heroine, Asha. Merchandise for the film has already hit store shelves, and now you can actually meet Asha in the Disney theme parks.
The Asha meet-and-greet is currently only available at Walt Disney World, but there will be one at Disneyland later this month. Check out where you can meet the new character below!
Where you can meet Asha in Disney World
To find her, head toward the World Showcase as if you were walking toward Mexico. Asha is in the gazebo right across from Disney Traders.
You'll find her there intermittently throughout the day beginning at around 9:30 a.m. The times can change but the typical schedule is 9:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m., 11:55 a.m., 1:50 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Where to meet Asha in Disneyland
Asha won't arrive in Disneyland until November 22, 2023, which is when Wish debuts in theaters. When she does come to the park, you'll be able to meet her outside the Royal Hall.
Look for her in the Fantasy Faire area, which is the small courtyard near Sleep Beauty's Castle. Her friend Star will also help illuminate the area.
Who is Asha?
Asha is the newest Disney heroine and star of the upcoming film Wish. Described as an "optimistic dreamer and leader-in-the-making," Asha and her friend Star must confront King Magnifico to help save the people of Rosas in the Kingdom of Wishes.
Asha is Disney's first-ever Afro-Hispanic Heroine, so it's nice to see more diversity arrive in the Disney parks. Her arrival comes shortly after Disney added a meet-and-greet for Moana.
Wish opens in theaters on November 22. Tickets are now on sale.
