“Good Morning America” shared a sneak peek at Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana,” an upcoming attraction at EPCOT. During the sneak peek, Imagineer Reid Ekman said that guests will be able to interact with the attraction, possibly with MagicBand+.
Ekman didn’t refer to MagicBand+ specifically, but the interactivity he described is similar to that of MagicBand+. He said, “So our goal is to make a connection between water and the guests. And one way we’re doing that is through these effects that respond to your presence.” He referenced guests “greeting” the water, maybe by waving, the same action used to interact with Fab 50 statues.
Ekman also said that music would be a major component and that there are about a dozen hidden characters in the walkthrough.
Watch the full sneak peek below.
