It may seem like EPCOT has been under construction for years, and that’s because it totally has. The Disney Park’s historic transformation has been simultaneously delayed and cut short. And yet, the theme park is still under construction.

Currently, the most anticipated attraction set to open soon is Journey of Water – Inspired By Moana.

This unique attraction is going to be a self-guided outdoor tour in which Guests learn all about the never-ending life cycle of water.

The water is said to be interactive and playful, just like in the Moana (2016) film. Not only that, but the attraction will also have fun easter eggs referencing other popular Disney films, such as Finding Nemo (2003).

And Guests aren’t just looking forward to the tropical Moana theme; the educational aspect of the attraction drives home the original, classic themes associated with Disney World’s EPCOT theme park.

And now, we’re even closer to opening than ever!
