See how Journey of Water has come to life at EPCOT before you explore it firsthand soon!

It’s almost time to see World Nature come to life over at EPCOT – Disney has shared a new update on Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana, and the attraction is looking like a standout! Featuring trails of water exploration that include interactive fountains and water features as well as details inspired by Moana (including a towering Te Fiti!), it’s almost complete and ready for its upcoming opening day.

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana was announced back in 2019 as part of EPCOT’s magical multi-year transformation. Now, this new walkthrough attraction is just about ready to welcome its very first Guests. Take a look at how far progress has come – and how close it is to opening! – below.

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will be a different kind of EPCOT attraction. You can experience all of its thrills simply by walking through its winding trails and interacting with different elements to see water come alive.

Designed to educate and inspire Guests, this attraction is meant to capture the magical ways Moana interacts with the ocean and translate that into Guests’ own interactions with water. You’ll find hands-on activities that make water come to life, as well as plenty of greenery, splashing and flowing water, and of course plenty of nods to the story of Moana
