    More details to be announced Sunday, but it looks like an interactive trail.

    So WDWNT actually brought this up in April, as a walkaround trail.

    They just didn't reference Moana though.

    Is it going to be a ride? Is it going to replace anything?

    I mean, I'll take a Moana ride in Epcot. But based on the concept art and the WDWNT post, I'm certain it's a trail.

    I don't think this will be a ride.

    “Journey of Water” sounds like a boat ride, although I agree concept art looks like a walkthrough.

    Every one is talking like it's an update to Imagination (because "Journey"), when I'm just thinking, "Damn, a Moana overlay to 'Living With the Land' would be pretty killer."

    They should do a Disney+ behind the scenes series for it called "Journey to the Backside of Water."

    ...I'll see myself out.

    I’m assuming this will be going somewhere in World Showcase.

    Looks like it’s replacing Innoventions West

    I would like to know what is going to make this "attraction" pertinent to Epcot, and not something that should otherwise belong in Adventureland. It sounds like there's an opportunity to do something Epcot-worthy with this concept... if they so choose.

    Where did this image come from?

    Future world is a lot of barren concrete wasteland. All the trees and water will do it wonders. Can’t wait.

    That said... we thought Jurassic Park was wall city... you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    I actually wish this wasn't themed to Moana so that nobody gets the idea that this is an attraction worthy of Moana.

    It's going to be ugly moving through Future World for several years.

    Moana is certainly worthy of a dark ride... in Adventureland! I can live with the character getting an interactive/exploratory/inspirational area (assuming that's what it will be) in Epcot because it will green up the whole section of the park.

    It just exudes modern disney though. It would’ve been fine and checked all the guests boxes as just a water area. But... IP!!!!!!!!

    The more I look at the Moana concept art, the more it reminds me of what the walkthrough area of Pandora was supposed to be.
