PHOTOS: Construction Goes Vertical on Journey of Water Inspired by Moana at EPCOT

Though delayed due to COVID-19, it looks like work is picking up on the new Moana-inspired walkthrough attraction, Journey of Water, at EPCOT. Construction has finally gone vertical on the old site of Innoventions East.


Metal framework has gone up on one end of the construction site.


We recently noticed dirt being moved around as well.


The framework structures are visible from the other side of the construction site as well.


Crew members were working on the site this morning.


It’s likely this framework is the beginnings of one of the rock structures of the attraction.


When completed, water will flow through rocks and trees as guests stroll through the area inspired by the goddess Te Fiti.


Though there’s not much to see right now, the attraction will eventually be taking shape right before our eyes.


Below is concept art of what Journey of Water will look like.

On last night’s show I joked that the pile of dirt could be Tafitti and well maybe it could be a tiny bit of reality. Very tiny

With EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary coming next year and the 50th Anniversary of WDW still being celebrated, it looks like 2022 is going to be a great year to go the parks. I think they want to get this project done and maybe even the Guardians ride done in time for next summer. A year without constructions throughout EPCOT. Imagine.

There will still be construction and things closed.
