EPCOT's The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion has new signage at the exit directing guests out into World Nature.

EPCOT introduced the three new neighborhoods in 2019 as part of the redevelopment of EPCOT. Disney said that, "Epcot will be unified with four neighborhoods that each speak to important aspects of the world and its people: World Showcase, World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery."

The new neighborhood names have been slowly introduced on signs around the park as the redevelopment progresses.

The new sign can be seen just before the gift shop at the exit from the pavilion.

Journey of Water Inspired by Moana will be the new addition to World Nature opening in 2022, joining The Land pavilion and the Seas with Nemo and Friends.

Makes sense to do for sure.

Fantastic. The entry plaza has been a lovely place to congregate and watch the light shows on Spaceship Earth. To have that experience but on a bigger scale o the center of the park is going to be gorgeous.

Frozen II is based on that myth.

I wonder what they did with that water? 🤔

I remember when they first announced this and they were going to build a smaller fountain and put back the water from the fountain of nataions. Glad to see that didn’t make the final cut 🫠🙄

But... color-changing LED's!!! That can be bought off-the-shelf and programmed just like they did at Epcot. Such an imaginative, timeless and creative thing they did...

Agreed, though the long telephoto picture does compress the depth. But the crowd flow concerns are definitely valid. On the whole, it seems more like a capitulation than a cohesive concept. Not sure what the message is supposed to be, other than "trees are good." Which is fine (I happen to love trees), but I can see literally the same thing in almost any modern urban core or suburban park. Which is why I call it capitulation. Instead of wowing us, knocking our socks off, exciting us about the endless possibilities for the future and/or the joy of discovery (or whatever the theme is now supposed to be), we get... trees. Safe, value-engineered (despite the cost) and relatively easy to maintain. Almost a "set it and forget it" mentality. Or a simple in-fill, returning the space to nature, because they couldn't come up with anything better. Is it nice? Sure. Is it worthy of its location in Epcot? For me, that remains an open question.

It looks really… visually busy. Also kinda looks like a crowd flow nightmare.
