The Latest Construction UPDATES On Disney’s New Moana-Themed Attraction

Get your hard hat ready. There’s a lot of construction going on at Disney World right now.

If you’ve visited the resort lately, you’ve probably seen construction sprinkled throughout Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and even at Disney World Resort hotels. And today, we’re going to look at the construction updates for an upcoming attraction in EPCOT —  Journey of Water — Inspired by Moana!

EPCOT is in the middle of a transformation, which initiated the addition of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Cosmic Rewind, The Creations Shop, and Connections Café and Eatery. But that’s only the beginning, as we also have Journey of Water — Inspired by Moana to look forward to!


We’ve been seeing rocks pop up in the area for the past couple of months, but during our trip recently, we noticed a significant increase of these formations.

For reference, this is what this section looked like back in June of 2022:

Look at how much progress has been made!

We’re still thinking this area is where the bouncing water fountains will be!


We also noticed some structures went up with overhangs attached. We’ll keep our eyes peeled as these continue to develop.

And we’ll continue to update you as construction moves along. In the meantime — check out construction updates for the Toy Story restaurant in Hollywood Studios, or the TRON ride in Magic Kingdom.

  1. So Epcot is turning into a “studio park.” Don’t they already have a studio park? 25 years from now we’ll be reading books and articles about how current management changed the course from four distinctly different parks and made them all more studio-ish and strangely mixing up (or abandoning) their rich and unique original theming. In the end, someone may come to realize that many Disney Imagineers were inspired by educational stuff in Epcot, and that “well” will slowly become drier were it not for the fascinating new ride technologies employed. But Epcot – please – why do I feel so overloaded by motion picture IP which I can get plenty of in the other Disney parks? Or (especially) from Universal? It seems all about the “dollars of the moment” club for Disney leadership.
