Percy Jackson Cast Visits Walt Disney World and Special Exhibit. Our 17 Year Old Daughter joined us in watching every episode of the brand new “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” airing on Disney+. In fact, we had to wait until 9pm last night for the season finale to air, and she asked if she could join in writing a review.
The review will be coming out tomorrow, and let me give you a sneak peek. We really enjoyed the new show. It was made for those kids who have grown up reading the Rick Riordan books. In the meantime, the cast was spotted around Walt Disney World this week.
For a limited time, the space will feature artifacts and costumes from the show, a photo op, and an inside look at the series which chronicles a quest set out by Percy Jackson (son of Poseidon), Annabeth Chase (daughter of Athena) and Grover Underwood (a satyr protector) to find Zeus’ Master Bolt before the summer solstice.
Recently, the cast of the show, Walker Scobell (Percy), Leah Sava Jeffries (Annabeth), and Aryan Simhadri (Grover) heard about the themed activation at Walt Disney World Resort and had to check it out.
But like their expansive journey in the show, their visit didn’t just stop there as they explored more of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and EPCOT. You have to take a look at some of the highlights from their day.
After their visit to Walt Disney Presents, they landed in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge where Leah channeled her inner Annabeth Chase and led the group to victory on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run using both strategy and wit.
Heading from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Toy Story Land, they made a quick stop for a photo with Woody, Jessie, and Buzz Lightyear from Pixar’s Toy Story films.
Then, they made their way over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park where, on Kilimanjaro Safaris, Aryan provided astute facts on the animals like his character, Grover.
Next, the group took the Wildlife Express Train to Conservation Station to enjoy The Animation Experience in celebration of National Geographic’s new Disney+ series, “A Real Bug’s Life.” Whose drawing do you think came out best?
The trio couldn’t miss snapping a selfie with the Xandarian Starblaster before hopping on Aryan’s favorite EPCOT ride, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
And what better way to end the day than Walker showing off his demigod skills by controlling water at Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana in EPCOT?
