New Moana Journey of Water Construction update for October. Just a month ago we got to see the actual 3D model of the new attraction coming to Epcot’s World Nature in 2023. We were all really impressed with what the Imagineering team at Disney has come up with and are highly excited for the opening day.

We got a chance to ride Disney’s Monorail and get a birds-ey view of the construction being done. A lot of the rock formations are complete and painted, and now the Cast members are adding some landscaping across the tops of the rocks.

One of the cooler things you can now see from the monorail is the Symbol from the movie Moana “The Heart of Te Fiti” in the rock sculpture. if you look through the scaffolding you can see it for yourself.

Zach Riddley said recently:

It was great to spend the day on our project site for Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana – the new attraction coming to the World Nature neighborhood of EPCOT. Many years go into designing these experiences and nothing beats seeing the real thing in its own “state of becoming.” Our guests are following along on this work from the monorail above our site, so I thought it would be fun to share a few views with you from on the ground, right in the middle of the process.

The craft of creating rockwork is a blend of art and science, and seeing this carving and sculpting progress live is one of the things I love most about my role as an Imagineer. I joined the project team for a walk of the site
alongside Imagineers Scott and Robert, two of our leaders overseeing the project. The range of textures are inspired by real-world formations – all the way down to the tiniest
details and variation that, when finished, should be impossible to distinguish from the real thing.”
