WARNING: Previewing EPCOT’s NEW Attraction Is Kinda Complicated Right Now…

We can’t stop talking about Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana. Why? Well, for one, it’s FUN! But also, Annual Pass and Disney Vacation Club previews are happening now, and there’s a lot you should know before visiting the new attraction.

Stunning, gorgeous, show-stopping, fabulous, magical…

We’ve been keeping track of the preview process ever since it began, so we’re here to share all the tips and things we’ve learned about Journey of Water so far. Before you stroll into EPCOT hoping to hop right in line for the attraction, read this first.

First of all, let’s talk about how the Annual Pass and Disney Vacation Club previews work. To experience Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana, Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members must have an EPCOT park pass reservation. But lately, those park pass reservations have been filling up! Here’s a look at the EPCOT Incredi Pass calendar. On September 29th, reservations filled up for the day! Or did they…?


Later that same day, we noticed that EPCOT park pass reservations were open again! If, at first, you don’t succeed in getting a park reservation, try again later!


Park reservations are the only factor that’s subject to change, though. Disney has been utilizing both a standby line AND a virtual queue for Journey of Water. Depending on the time of day, crowd level, and availability, you may have to join a virtual queue before hopping in line.

Virtual Queue Line

Additionally, we’ve noticed that the estimated wait time for the virtual queue can vary. For example, on September 29th, the virtual queue had no wait time, even thirty minutes after opening. When a guest joined the virtual queue at around 9:30AM, their group was immediately called.

Remember that as more guests visit EPCOT, the wait time may increase, and Disney may even close the virtual queue if it fills up for the day. In the meantime, we’re always on the lookout for the latest Disney news, so stay tuned for more.
