@thezachriddley took to social media to share:

“Check out this brand-new concept rendering we revealed this morning for Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana! This new experience is coming to EPCOT during its historic transformation, and will find its home within World Nature, our new neighborhood dedicated to learning and supporting humanity’s relationship with our planet.”

“Journey of Water will immerse guests in a lush environment, and it is here that the story of the global cycle of water will be brought to life in a story completely unique to EPCOT. We’re creating an outdoor attraction for all ages, where you will be invited to play and interact with water as it travels from our skies to our oceans and back again. The spaces and experiences within were inspired by Moana’s friendship with water and her devotion to protecting nature around her.”

“I often say that EPCOT is a park about people – the stories and curiosity that we share about our world, and the endless possibility that lives in each of us. Since the earliest days of the park, pavilions like The Land and The Seas with Nemo & Friends have given millions of guests the ability to explore the far reaches (and depths!) of our planet, and it’s through these unique encounters that we become inspired to protect the beauty and balance of our natural world. Journey of Water will build on that history of storytelling and conservation-focused education at EPCOT.”

“Currently, our Walt Disney Imagineering team is hard at work preparing the site and developing all the details that will give form to this new experience. Stay connected with me here and @disneyparks for more details as the transformation of EPCOT continues.”

We’re super interested to learn more about how Guests will interact with the water! We are still waiting on a definite time frame for Journey of Water Inspired by Moana to open. We will be sure to keep you posted however as we learn more about this highly-anticipated Moana attraction.
