First Rock Work Takes Shape at Journey of Water Inspired by ‘Moana’ in EPCOT

The first faux rock work is visible at the construction site of Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana” in EPCOT.

We saw this steel tower structure go up last week.

Around the corner, we could see the rock shape against one of the long curved walls.

The shape of the rocks is created by wire mesh.

Several small concrete elements are scattered around the rock work.

Steel supports are behind the rock work.

It is surrounded by orange net fencing.

No rock work has been added to the other walls and structures in the area, but there are several more support poles.

Journey of Water will be a walkthrough attraction with interactive water features.

The concrete walls at the center of the site seem to have small pipes extending from it into the ground.

We’ve seen large pipes inside trenches, too.

The steel tower is surrounded by a platform, but most of the ground remains unpaved.

Another structure is inside the ground, with wooden railings around the edge of it.


There is no announced opening timeframe for Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana.”
