Disney Parks has just revealed a massive revamp to Epcot at Disney World and it includes an incredible new Moana attraction.

As the Disney Parks press release explains, Epcot will be redesigned with four neighborhoods which represent important aspects of the world and its people: World Showcase, World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. “These neighborhoods will be filled with new experiences rooted in authenticity and innovation that take guests to new destinations, where the real is made fantastic in a celebration of curiosity, hands-on wonder and the magic of possibility.” The new attraction, Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will find its home in the World Nature neighborhood.

The new attraction is described as a “lush exploration trail” where guests will be able to interact with “magical, living water” just as Moana makes friends with the ocean in the film. The World Nature neighborhood is dedicated to celebrating and preserving the beauty of the natural world, so the Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana will also teach visitors about the importance of the natural water cycle.

No word yet when the new attraction will officially open, but guests will be able to get a look at all of the plans for the new Epcot when Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience in the Odyssey Events Pavilion starting Oct. 1, 2019.
