We’ve known since last year that various Disney characters would be hiding in the rockwork of Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.” Now that we’ve been able to visit the new EPCOT attraction, we’ve cataloged every hidden character and object we could find.

SPOILER WARNING: Below is a list of Easter eggs without locations if you want to find them on your own. After that are photos and locations of each one.

If you just want a walkthrough of the attraction, check out our daytime walkthrough and our nighttime walkthrough.
