Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana Opening This Fall

Quite a bit of anticipation has been building for the debut of this new attraction, and we’re pleased to see that is seems Disney is on track to meet their late fall opening date. Journey of Water is set to fill out the center of EPCOT as part of the new World Nature section, and contribute to Disney’s recent initiative to transform the park for the next generation of park guests.

This attraction has also been discussed to have a strong undertone of promoting water conservation and preservation, which is always a welcome addition to the past attractions that Disney has used to inspire children with a positive message.

Along with Moana as a steward of water conservation, Te Fiti is a symbol of how we should protect and nurture water wherever we find it. This is an important theme in Journey of Water, where guests will learn more about how water travels from our skies to the ocean, and back again. This story will unfold along a lush trail inspired by the environments and art style of the beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios film.

If history is any indicator, we may see Annual Passholder or cast member previews before this attraction is open to the public, but we will have to stay tuned to see how that plays out. The unique nature of this attraction being a walk-through experience may inhibit traditional previews to take place.

Once we have official word from Disney regarding the official opening date for this new attraction, we will be sure to keep you up-to-date on the DVC Shop blog, so check back often to get all the latest news from inside the Disney theme parks and around the Disney Vacation Club resorts.
