Too Much of a Good Thing? Fans Aren’t Thrilled at the Prospect of Two ‘Moana’ Lands at Disney

Moana (2016) is a relatively recent Walt Disney Animation feature film at less than ten years old, and its popularity is still going strong. In fact, the feature film’s popularity is only set to grow from here, but Guests aren’t exactly thrilled about that.

It was recently announced by the Walt Disney Company and Dwayne Johnson that Moana is next on the list of Disney movies to receive a live-action remake. Although the Pacific Islander princess is widely beloved, the reaction was lukewarm and mostly confused, considering that the film is incredibly recent.

Not only that but EPCOT’s upcoming Moana attraction is set to open in World Nature later this year: Journey of Water Inspired by Moana.

The upcoming Moana attraction is a self-guided outdoor tour along different trails, educating and entertaining Guests. The water’s playful personality is said to shine throughout this attraction as Guests learn about the water cycle.

However, this isn’t the only Moana attraction that may be coming to Walt Disney World. If you’ve been keeping up with Disney news, you know Animal Kingdom’s DinoLand U.S.A. is doomed to extinction.

Slowly but surely, each aspect of the theme park’s kitschy area is being taken down to make way for something new. With the addition of Journey of Water Inspired by Moana and a live-action adaptation, a Moana-themed area in Disney’s Animal Kingdom seems more possible than ever.

However, many fans are discouraged by this idea and think there may be too much of Moana coming to Disney Parks. One of the most agreed-upon ideas is to simply revamp DinoLand U.S.A. to make it better than ever.
