Walt Disney World Releases Sneak Peek of ‘Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana’

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana

This morning, Walt Disney World woke everyone up with a sneak peek look at the upcoming “Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana,” which is coming to EPCOT soon.

The Video

The video is less than a minute, but shows some of the play features available for guests to enjoy in this walk-through attraction.

From playing music to making waves dance, the video shows cast members trying out the various areas of the “journey.”

Take a look:

Disney also released a first person P.O.V. TikTok video of what it’s like to play with the water:

About the Attraction

“Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana” is a walk-through attraction that will allow guests to explore and engage with water as it travels from our skies to our oceans and back again.

It is inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios 2016 animated movie “Moana,” and the title character’s fierce determination to protect her environment, especially with her strong bond with water throughout the story.

The attraction is scheduled to open at EPCOT in late 2023, by the monorail, in the new World Nature section of the park.

Cast members are having previews soon, which means the passholders will get previews shortly after, and then everyone will be able to enjoy this attraction.

As soon as we hear a date, we’ll let you know, but my guess is it will be a highlight of EPCOT’s Disney100 celebrations which kick off September 22, 2023.

  1. kinda disappointed that its not a ride–they could have done something like the Mexico pavilion ride, not a thrill ride, just a ride through– imagine riding on Moana’s boat, Hey Hey steering perhaps.
    It seems like it was a Chapek approved cheap-out on what could have been.
