This vibrant, exciting, and sprawling city is home to world-class golf courses, restaurants, shops, museums, spas, wildlife tours, and beyond.

Of course, no trip to Florida really feels complete without some quality time spent at Disney World in Orlando. When you’re looking for magical moments to include on your itinerary, this is the place to find it. If your travel plans happen to be taking you to Disney World in late 2023, you’ll be just in time to make the most of the grand opening of Moana’s Journey of Water attraction! While Disney World is loved for its festivals, events, characters, and rides, the opening of a new attraction is always a highlight and Moana’s Journey of Water is gearing up to be grand. Audiences quickly fell in love with the Moana movie upon its release and the Walt Disney World attraction is designed to keep that thrill alive and well for guests.

A One-of-a-Kind Attraction to Enjoy

Water will most certainly come to life for guests with the opening of this unique and exciting attraction. Construction on Moana’s Journey of Water has been underway for a significant amount of time, and Disney has finally announced that the attraction will be open to the public officially starting October 1, 2023. Cast previews will happen throughout July and August with the October unveiling being a chance for guests to explore something brand new at Epcot in World Nature. The destination seems fitting as this area of the park is designed to showcase the balance and beauty of nature at its very best. This is a theme that’s well-aligned with those found in the Moana film.

Those who regularly visit Epcot will note that Moana’s Journey of Water attraction is an integral part of the overhaul happening in the area between World Showcase and Spaceship Earth. Moana’s Journey of Water attraction will occupy the area that once hosted Innoventions West and Journey Into Imagination. Those who visit Moana’s Journey of Water will have a wonderful experience while also being able to easily access Sea and Land Pavilions in Epcot directly. Fans of the Moana film will be thrilled to note that this attraction is the first of its kind that Disney has designed based on the movie. That alone makes the opening day even more exciting!

Attraction Details That are Highly Anticipated

In general, Disney does a good job of keeping their best attraction secrets under wraps, but early released images and plans for Moana’s Journey of Water attraction give guests a good idea of what is to come on October 1st. This exciting attraction is designed to be a self-guided trail for guests to follow rather than a traditional ride. This means it will be a great option for guests of all ages and heights to enjoy! Along the trail, guests will experience an interactive and colorful aesthetic designed to mimic that displayed in the film.

The trail is bound to be as educational as it is engaging thanks to the lessons travelers will learn along the way about how water moves between earth and sky and is vital to the planet we call home. In many ways, it appears water will take on a personality all its own on this attraction which is another nod to the movie. As guests enjoy lush, tropical surroundings on the trail, they’ll be captivated by a larger-than-life Te Fiti figure that will be found at the center. This note only inspires, but makes for an amazing photo opportunity as well. While all Disney attractions have a way of being appealing, there’s something extra exciting about being there when a new attraction is unveiled!
