More About Journey of Water
Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is a “self-guided outdoor trail where you can play with water as it travels from the sky to the oceans and back again.”
It has a wet path and a dry path for guests who don’t want to get wet.
“Along with Moana as a steward of water conservation, Te Fiti is a symbol of how we should protect and nurture water wherever we find it,” Reid Ekman, Lead Concept Designer at Walt Disney Imagineering, said of the giant Te Fiti figure at the attraction.
This is an important theme in Journey of Water, where guests will learn more about how water travels from our skies to the ocean, and back again. This story will unfold along a lush trail inspired by the environments and art style of the beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios film.
Cast Members working at Journey of Water and The Seas With Nemo & Friends have convertible, environmentally friendly costumes.
Cast Members have been previewing the attraction for weeks now, and we were able to visit as guests during the day and at night. Read Tom’s review of Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.”
