Two years ago, Disney announced that an all-new attraction themed after the story of Moana would be arriving at EPCOT.

In case you are not aware, the new attraction will be called Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana and, according to Disney officials, 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.”

Though we do not yet have an opening date, we can see construction is continuing on the site for the upcoming attraction!

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is an attraction coming to EPCOT, not a ride — think of it more as an experience. Disney describes the attraction as it “will let Guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting.”

Here’s how Disney officially describes the Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana:

In World Nature, The reinvention of Epcot will include Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.” This first-ever experience inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hit film will let guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting.
