For the first time ever in a Disney park, you can experience the new Disney+ original series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” at Walt Disney Presents in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

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.
