In 2019, Disney fans were ecstatic when Walt Disney World announced an all-new attraction themed after the story of Moana would be arriving at EPCOT.

The new and upcoming attraction, which will be called Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana, will be the “first-ever experience inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hit film [and] will let Guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting,” according to Disney officials.

Now, thanks to bioreconstruct on Twitter, we have another update for you regarding this upcoming EPCOT attraction.
