2023 is the year of exciting new additions at Disney World!
One of the biggest additions will be the completion of the EPCOT transformation toward the end of the year, and as part of that, we’ll be getting a new walkthrough attraction. We’ve seen concept art and photos from the upcoming Journey of Water — Inspired by Moana, but now we’ve got our first VIDEO from inside the attraction!
Good Morning America got a sneak peek inside the new attraction and captured some video of its features, which are still under construction. They interviewed Reid Ekman, who is the Lead Concept Designer, asking questions about what we can expect from the new experience — check out the video below!
The video also shows a close-up of the stunning Te Fiti sculpture that was installed earlier this month. There’s so much detail that you can only see from standing right underneath the statue.
How will guests interact with water in this attraction, exactly? “One way you greet your friend is by waving, so I’d imagine that one way to greet water is by doing a similar thing,” said Ekman. “Our goal is to make a connection between water and the guest.”
We can’t wait to check out this attraction in the coming months, and hopefully learn more details before then — it looks like it’s going to be very unique! We’ll continue to update you as we find out more, and stay tuned to DFB for the official opening date announcement.
