The Attraction

“Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana” is a walk-through attraction that will allow guests to explore and engage with water as it travels from our skies to our oceans and back again.

It is inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios 2016 animated movie “Moana,” and the title character’s fierce determination to protect her environment, especially with her strong bond with water throughout the story.

It is located in the new World Nature section of the park, the EPCOT neighborhood dedicated to understanding and preserving the beauty and balance of the natural world. It can be found across from “Living With the Seas.”
