The inside of the carved swirl has also been painted blue. Dark paint has been added to the rocks where water will run down to simulate wear and staining.

Walt Disney Imagineering recently shared their own construction update as well a look at some of the carvings in the faux rockwork, which include Kakamora and a “Finding Nemo” reference.

Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana” will be part of the World Nature neighborhood. Next door, construction continues on CommuniCore Hall and CommuniCore Plaza, which will be part of World Celebration.
