I loved that it is based around not only the film, but also advocacy and focusing on water and all it does for us, as well as its playful elements. I thought it was so fun, and I can't wait to come back," she said.



Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana, allows guests to explore a lush environment where water moves in unexpected ways. It's designed to educate and inspire appreciation for the natural water cycle.

I went with a family with an 8 year old boy. He absolutely loved it. The father, maybe not so much. LOL. Epcot needed more kid friendly attractions and this fits the bill.

It was absolutely mobbed when we were there 2 weeks ago...no big line to get in, but the paths were packed full of people, there was no time or space to enjoy the little effects and things, and by the time we got to the TeFiti area, there were so many people taking selfies that you could not even really see the TeFiti figure and the area... It was a major clog point. I would have liked to have gone back later in the day to see if the crowds went down, but it was a fairly unpleasant experience. I thought that what we saw was very nicely done, but don't think I will ever feel like it was a good thematic match for it's location... Now if The Living Seas was themed to a South Pacific research station...and it had been built around the entrance area between the Land and Seas... it might have been a better fit....

This was a great addition. And for the record, we have been there multiple times now and it was always full. You learn something and it is fun. I would imagine as it gets hotter this will just get more and more crowded.

One would think that this would be a person they would encourage to come to the grand opening… I do like it though

Nice. Quick repair. Maybe just a late growing pain.

EXACTLY! and Moana would have looked better in DAK.... And maybe a splash Zone themed to an Oceanographic Institute actually on the same side of the monorail beam as the Living Seas would have been a better choice.... Something that matched the style of the front half of the park....

Keep kids entertained, something to cool off. However if that is the case how come Hollywood Studios doesn't offer one or Animal Kingdom. If the Dino playground is going away for good then that's removing something for the kids. Hollywood Studios could use something water it's hot there.
