Construction Walls Expand at Journey of Water Site, Revealing Integration with EPCOT Center Hardscape & Lush Foliage

    Some of the construction walls have been pushed back at the Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana site, revealing how Disney plans on integrating the new World Nature walkthrough attraction with some of the existing classic EPCOT Center hardscapes.

    First, here’s a look at the expanded construction walls. As we’ll see in a moment from the monorail, the walls now cover a small pond that is currently drained.

    Here’s a look at what the view used to be like from here when Innoventions was being gutted and demolished.

    Here’s a view of the area from the monorail, including a look at how the rockwork from the Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana will integrate with the classic EPCOT hardscape.

    Elsewhere on the site, we see a much more lush walkthrough experience that will certainly earn its spot in World Nature.

    Here’s a look at the pump equipment for Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana. It looks like there is some water in the reservoir, so we could see some testing of water features shortly.

    Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana will open in Fall 2023 at EPCOT.
