Moana Is Getting a Water-Themed Attraction at Walt Disney World

This brand-new announcement proves just how far Walt Disney World is willing to go to bring Moana to life.

The theme park just announced that its first-ever Moana-themed attraction is coming to Epcot. It will consist of a maze-like excursion called Journey of Water, which will “let guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting,” according to the official Disney Parks blog.

Executives for Walt Disney World announced the exciting news at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Although they didn’t reveal any additional details, we do have a mock-up sketch of what the attraction will look like.

The pic shows the front of the attraction, which features a lush, nature-filled path that runs next to a fountain-like structure. In another poster shown at the expo, it’s clear that it’s no ordinary waterfall. In fact, Te Fiti—the iconic goddess from the movie—is hiding right on the other side.

Journey of Water is just one of many attractions being developed for Walt Disney World’s multi-year transformation of Epcot. The new experiences are supposed to make the resort feel more family-oriented, timeless and unique to other theme parks.

Moana originally premiered in 2016 and featured the voices of Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Maui), Rachel House (Gramma Tala) and Temuera Morrison (Cheif Tui).

In the wise words of Maui, “You’re welcome.”
