@AshleyLCarter1 took to social media to share, “The Journey of Water Inspired by Moana attraction coming to EPCOT will feature a 16 foot tall Te Feti.” Check out the images in the tweet below:

She is absolutely stunning, and we simply can’t wait to see this Disney Park experience unfold at EPCOT.

Disney describes the incoming Journey of Water Inspired by Moana as follows:

Designed for all ages, Journey of Water will allow Guests to explore and engage with water as it travels from our skies to our oceans and back again. Walt Disney Imagineering partnered with artists and cultural consultants from Walt Disney Animation Studios to bring this experience to life, and our team tasked themselves with capturing the beauty of the natural water cycle within the attraction. We were also inspired by Moana’s fierce determination to protect her environment – her bond with water is unique, and we are excited for guests to learn about the importance of water and experience its playful personality just as she did.
