We began our journey through this remarkable attraction and were immediately captivated by the experience. Journey of Water feels like an oasis right in the heart of EPCOT. Inspired by the animated film Moana, the attraction is designed with several sections representing various aspects of the water cycle and different bodies of water, such as rain, lakes, and the ocean. Each section offers unique ways to interact with water. From playful fountains to a splash pad and streams of water that leap above you, there’s a world of watery wonder to discover. If you’re traveling with youngsters who love to run through splash pads, remember to pack a change of clothes.

Other features require you to take action to elicit responses from the water. For instance, step in a designated spot, and you’ll witness a burst of water shooting into the air. In another section, you can wave your hand through streams of running water, creating beautiful harp-like sounds, with each stream producing a different note. Symbols and signage guide you through the experience, explaining how to create these enchanting effects. But one of the most exciting aspects of this attraction is how it encourages collaboration. For a specific interactive element, the more guests participating, the higher the wave they can collectively create, making it a thrilling group experience.
