Disney has released new concept photos of the Moana EPCOT outdoor trail, officially called Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana. Scroll for illustrations and details.
As part of EPCOT’s historic transformation, which includes the New guardians of the galaxy Russian mountains and pavilion, the four distinct quarters, the new CommuniCore Plazaand new experiences like Space 220, Coffee Connectionsand the Creations shop—Disney presents the First time Moana– an inspired attraction, called Journey of Water.
What is the new Moana EPCOT attraction?
Water travel, inspired by Moana is a outdoor path that guests of all ages can explore. According to Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley, Journey of Water: Inspired by Moana allows EPCOT guests to “celebrate our important connection to the internal water cycle”.
Along the lush exploration trail, guests will be able to “Meet and play with magical, living water.” This water will have its own personality, just like in the animated film.
The trail will encourage guests to interact with water as it travels from the skies to the oceans and back again.
Concept art water travel
This week, Disney released new concept art for the Moana upcoming guided tour at EPCOT.
You can see several distinct areas, including one large wooden structure in the center. Each of the zones contains unique aquatic experiences to explore.
You can also see how guests will enter and exit.
And of course, upon entering you will encounter the Heart of Te Fiti in some big rocks. Because what would be a Moana would the attraction be without a nod to this integral plot device of the film?
Where is the Moana Virtual tour of EPCOT?
When it opens, Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will be located in World Naturenear Earth and Seas with the Nemo Pavilions.
This attraction is a step-by-step procedure, rather than a turn. (Think Swiss Family Treehouse.) This should be a welcome respite from the long lines and provide a refreshing way to beat the heat at EPCOT.

Boom baby! Timothy Moore is thrilled to serve as WDW Magazine Contributor and Resident Disney Renaissance Expert. When he’s not drinking around the world at EPCOT or gobbling Mickey Waffles for breakfast, he can usually be found with his partner hiking and kayaking in the great outdoors, to postpone writing his novel while playing Nintendo Switch or to tell his dogs Goomba and Blooper that they are the best boys in the world to the point of nausea (because they are).
