Last week, we saw crew members testing one of the water features at Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana” in EPCOT. More details have since been added to the attraction, which is scheduled to open in late 2023 as part of the World Nature neighborhood.
There are several more plastic-wrapped tree-like structures among the rocks. They are most likely lamp posts and resemble those seen in concept art (below). Moss has been added to the tops of the rocks, too.
No water was running down the Te Fiti swirl symbol today, but it is more clearly visible than it has been. A tarp was previously hanging in front of it.
Most of the attraction’s rock structures remain surrounded by scaffolding as work continues. Further into the construction site, some rock structures don’t look as complete as the brown ones around the edge of the site.
Several crew members were working on short grey rock structures. The large one in the background looks like it has a small cave inside it.
There are also two large awnings in a square of concrete flooring closer to Spaceship Earth.
Here is concept art for Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana.” The rock structure with the Te Fiti swirl is at the entrance to the attraction. Brown poles with orange lanterns are throughout. The 16-foot-tall Te Fiti statue will be next to a pool of water.
