The Journey of Water at EPCOT

Wondering what you can expect? We’ve been and found it to be a wonderful experience!

The journey begins at a small waterfall, representing the start of a water cycle.

As guests move through the walkway, they will find different paths either allowing them to be close to water, or to view it from a distance.

By being closer to the water, you will have a greater chance of getting wet.

The path closer to the water encourages them to interact with the water pouring through the rock formation.

By touching the “strings” of water, guests can manipulate sound. Each “string” of water plays a different musical note.

The next area features water playfully jumping from place to place.

Guests can watch how water moves gracefully from one area to the next before heading to a place where they can learn how to manipulate and control the water with their hands, just like Moana.

This section of the Moana attraction allows guests to force water to rise based on where their hands are placed over the spring.

The higher the hands, the higher the fountain of water rises.

After playing with water, guests can walk through a waterfall that magically stops as soon as they walk underneath.

Te Fiti at EPCOT

This takes guests to Te Fiti who is lovingly looking over a pool of water as waterfalls and dancing fountains spill into it.

It makes the perfect backdrop for selfies and family photos!

As you pass Te Fiti, guests learn about the power of water.

There is a river rapidly carrying water from one section to the next, water fountains passing water overhead, culminating in an interactive feature that allows guests to collaboratively work together to help the water reach the sky!
