Te Fiti Statue Now Visible from inside Epcot for Moana Journey of Water Attraction


Te Fiti is now visible to excited guests passing by the future site of the Moana Journey of Water attraction coming soon to Epcot.

We can also see that surrounding Te Fiti is a lot of metal framework for what looks to be additional features being added.

Previously hidden behind construction guests could only see the very tip of Te Fiti’s head. Now we can see the emerging Ti Fiti and a volcanic mountain or monolith featuring the Heart of Te Fiti symbol.


Seeing the image of this rocky feature with the Heart of Ti Fiti symbol rising up we have to wonder if this will be one of the interactive features or be lit up in any way. Illustrations show this area with water falling over the rocks.

Looking closely we can see flowers and fauna covering the structure. Disney Parks has given us a glimpse of several water features. What we know so far is that we can expect at least a dozen characters hidden throughout a Polynesian atmosphere. Music and water will be a big part of the experience. I am sure we can expect a few fun interactive surprises as well.

Disney’s official site describes this coming attraction as a go at your own pace self-guided, educational, interactive play space.

“Stroll along a self-guided outdoor trail where you can play and interact with water as it travels from the sky to the oceans and back again. Along the way, learn about the importance of water and discover its playful personality—just as Moana did on her heroic voyage.”

Attractions Location

While most guests are looking forward to the opening of Moana Journey of Water the placement of it which is at the front of Epcot’s park just across from the Creations gift shop and close to the Seas with Nemo ride. There have been some questions as to the choice of its location though with many feeling that this Moana attraction with its Polynesian theming would fit in better in a park like Animal Kingdom.

Where to Spot Te Fiti & More


To get a better look at the new and coming Moana attraction head over toward the area between the exit and the Seas with Nemo and Friends to get a good sneak peek. If you are entering the park it will be to your right if you are exiting it will be to your left side.

I am on the fence myself about the Moana Journey of Water location. It doesn’t put a damper on my excitement to experience it and we will be checking back regularly and keeping you updated as we note any progress.
