Work Continues on Moana Journey of Water at EPCOT
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog, you may have heard the news that a brand new Moana-inspired attraction is coming to EPCOT in late 2023 – Journey of Water.
Our MickeyBlogger is at EPCOT this afternoon and managed to grab some incredible images of construction on the new pavilion.
You can see the Moana-inspired rock formations taking shape and they represent Disney Imagineering at its best!
Disney has yet to announce an official opening date for the attraction. However, we do know that it will be at some point next year.
Once complete, the attraction will allow guests to explore and engage with water as it journeys from the skies to the oceans and back again.
As you can see, more and more of the details becoming visible.
The location of Journey Into Water is in very close proximity to Spaceship Earth and is part of a larger re-imagining of EPCOT that has brought new eateries, shops, attractions and more!
Once complete the attraction will use the popular film Moana as the inspiration for demonstrating the beauty of the natural water cycle.
Those that have seen the film will know that Moana has a very special bond with water and Disney is hoping that this will encourage guests to learn more about the importance of water and experience water’s playful personality just like Moana did.
Woven into Journey of Water will be lots of familiar elements from the film like the shapes of the characters being carved into the rocks and waterways throughout the experience.
