Are you ready for an exciting adventure that combines the magic of Disney with the enchanting world of Moana? Starting October 16, 2023, Walt Disney World Resort’s EPCOT theme park will  unveil the all-new “Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana.” Here is a sneak peek into what you can expect from this captivating addition to the park.

A Magical Exploration of Nature

Nestled within the World of Nature at Epcot, the Journey of Water invites guests on a self-guided expedition through a beautifully landscaped walking trail filled with surprises at every turn. Here, you’ll discover the incredible potential of water and its connection to our planet, just like Moana did with the ocean.


But before you embark on this aquatic adventure, let’s explore what you should know about Journey of Water:

1. It’s Interactive: A Walk Through the Water Cycle

This attraction is unlike any other you’ll find at Disney. It’s not about animatronics or fast-paced rides; instead, it’s an immersive, educational, and entertaining experience. As you traverse the circular path, you’ll encounter nine different zones representing phases of the water cycle, including Rain, Stream, Wetland, Spring, Land, Lake, River, Ocean, and Sky. These zones offer a deeper understanding of the vital role water plays on our planet.

2. Stay Dry or Get Wet!

Are you worried about getting soaked? Don’t be! While there are water features and splash pads for those eager to cool off, there’s also a “dry path” for those who prefer to stay dry. However, be warned, it may be hard for the little ones to resist the allure of these water elements, especially on those hot Florida days.

3. Daytime vs. Nighttime Magic

Much like the magical world of Pandora, Journey of Water transforms into a different experience at night. Spectacular lighting creates a luminescent ambiance, particularly in the area where you’ll encounter Te Fiti. So, whether you visit during the day or at night, you’re in for a visually stunning journey.


4. Meet Moana

What could be better than meeting Moana herself in a place inspired by her incredible adventures? As you explore Journey of Water, keep an eye out for a dedicated Moana meet-and-greet location. You’ll have the opportunity to say “hi” to Moana, take photos, and share a special moment with this beloved Disney character.

Are you feeling the excitement? We certainly are! If you’re ready to experience the wonders of Epcot and the enchantment of Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana, why not reach out to Magic Family Getaways today? Let’s start planning your unforgettable Walt Disney World vacation, complete with this fantastic new attraction that’s sure to make a splash in your memories!
