Journey of Water is a new attraction — the first ever inspired by Moana — coming to EPCOT!
Journey of Water — The Attraction
Guests will be able to explore what Disney has described as a “lush exploration trail” that allows explorers to “play with magical, living water” through an immersive walk-through attraction.
In addition to the trail and living water experiences, Disney has shared that guests will “learn about the importance of the natural water cycle.”
These designs give an idea of the size, scope, and layout of the trail and its features.
In May 2022, Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared the following with Gizmodo.com: “For Journey of Water, the idea is really celebrating the cycle. You actually get a chance to meet water the same way Moana meets her friend water in the film, and we have some really fun experiences as you move through this trail that are totally unique, invented for this. But the underlying subject is really the importance of preserving water, like the cycle of water, the fact that all water is essentially finite, and it’s important for us to understand its role and to preserve it as a resource, so we’re able to use elements from Moana’s story. But the Epcot story is about water and its conservation; that idea is rooted in real ideas, real things that inspire us but then actually take you into that experience. That’s what we think the unique space of Epcot can bring to life.”
Journey of Water — Location
Journey of Water will be located in the World Nature neighborhood in EPCOT.
World Nature also encompasses The Land and The Seas pavilions.
Journey of Water — Timeframe and Construction
An opening timeframe has not yet been announced for Journey of Water. We will update this page with more information as soon as it is announced, so stay tuned!
We are also keeping a close eye on the future location for this attraction, and will continue to keep you posted on construction milestones as they are reached. For instance, in late April 2022, we began to see the formation of what appear to be the beginning of rock structures in the upcoming attraction.
And the rock work (as pictured above) continued to expand in May, while clearing of some areas began to be seen in June (as pictured below). The image below also gives a good perspective for the attraction’s orientation in World Nature in regards to Spaceship Earth (in World Celebration).
We can’t wait to keep you posted as more information about Journey of Water is revealed!
