The website still states Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana” will open in “late 2023.” Disney has previously stated it would open in “fall 2023.” An opening in November, in time for Thanksgiving, could be considered both late and in the fall of this year. Cast Member previews have already begun.

The Walt Disney World website describes Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana” as a “lush trail that’s fun for all ages.” Here is more from the website:

Where Water Comes to Life

Stroll along a self-guided outdoor trail where you can play with water as it travels from the sky to the oceans and back again. Along the way, you’ll find that:

  • Water Is a Friend: Moana befriended the ocean… and you can, too! Enjoy magical encounters with water and discover its playful personality, just as Moana did on her heroic voyage.
  • Water Connects Us All: All water is connected—and it connects us to one another. As you traverse this trail, you’ll connect and interact with water in new ways. And you’ll learn about the global water cycle, which takes water on a wondrous adventure around our planet.
  • Water Needs Protection: Throughout your journey, you’ll learn how you can help protect this precious natural resource and make a positive impact on the world.

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is scheduled to open in late 2023 within World Nature—the EPCOT neighborhood dedicated to understanding and preserving the beauty and balance of the natural world.

Make a Splash… or Stay Dry!

You can choose to get wet—or take the dry path instead—as you explore this whimsical, watery world.
