This new concept art includes a first look at the new EPCOT Gardens area with a large overview of the World Celebration area. World Celebration is one of the four new neighborhoods that make up EPCOT. Be sure to check out the new permanent meeting location for this reimagined EPCOT HERE.
Guests visiting EPCOT still see construction walls and work underway for the “Journey of Water” Moana attraction.
Initial Plan for “Journey of Water” Attraction
When first announced, the “Journey of Water” was scheduled to welcome guests in October 2021 in time for the 50th Anniversary celebrations. That timeline was adjusted as this project is still in progress.
The original concept art featured a large flowing waterfall centerpiece with a heart of Te Fiti-inspired design. Additional models show a walking trail that winds through greenery and other island-inspired forest areas.
