World Celebration will be comprised of several different gardens, with a central planter based on the five-ring EPCOT logo. This space will be filled with seating while offering guests shade on hot days. Each of these gardens will have their own identities, and they’ll change along with the festivals throughout the year.

“Journey of Water will immerse guests in a lush environment, and it is here that the story of the global cycle of water will be brought to life in a story completely unique to EPCOT. We’re creating an outdoor attraction for all ages, where you will be invited to play and interact with water as it travels from our skies to our oceans and back again. The spaces and experiences within were inspired by Moana’s friendship with water and her devotion to protecting nature around her.”
